Obama - Change we can Deceive In - A listing of parallels

This grouping of items, mainly foreign policy issues, suggests that there isn't going to be much change in the years to come, with the notable exception that the pitchman, Obama, is undoubtedly a superior speaker and source of inspiration to those easily misled.

I compiled these sources for use in bombarding the pro-Obama left-wing sites, where they should be very effective. I anticipate that the most probable remarks will be of the "He hasn't had much time yet to form these changes, etc, etc."

If there are others that I have missed, please add them in the comment section below.

Like Bush, Obama is not interested in investigating 9/11 and supports the ludicrous 9/11 Commission Conspiracy Theory:

Obama: "I don’t think anybody predicted 9/11"

Obama and 9/11: Part 1 By Michael Hasty

Obama Addresses 9/11 Government Complicity: Possible President responds to an Infowars reader

Like Bush, Obama stacked his cabinet with neocons, hawks and corporate insiders:

And like Bush like Obama on rendition:

EDIT: Obama on warrantless wiretapping: google search gets 161,000 hits:

Still, I'm glad it wasn't McCain; Obama's one of those "elites" that favors investment in renewable energy, Net Neutrality and broadband access- these are technologies that are educating and empowering the People, leveling the playing field between the parasites and the productive.

Use of signing statements:


Obama’s Signing Statement Disappears Whistleblowers

Obama's continued use of presidential signing statements undermines system of checks and balances

Sent this email to the White House:

President Obama's use of signing statements (like Bush's) appears to have no Constitutional or legal justification. As paraphrased in the Jurist, it seems clear that Obama and whoever is advising him on this are asserting that the President has the authority to decide what's Constitutional, rather than the Courts:

"In narrowing the occasions upon which he would seek to exercise this claimed power, President Obama declared his intention to follow four principles, as summarized below:

1. Inform the Congress of the administration's constitutional concerns about pending legislation.

2. Construe legislation passed by Congress as presumptively constitutional, and only use "well-founded" methods of constitutional interpretation as the basis for finding that legislation is not constitutional.

3. Provide enough specificity to make clear the nature and basis of any constitutional objection asserted.

4. Construe a statutory provision in a manner that avoids a constitutional problem only if that construction is a legitimate one."

The Constitution clearly describes the President's role as one of executing the laws passed by Congress; not the creation or interpretation of the law:

"Congress passes legislation; the president may sign or veto the legislation. If the president signs the legislation, all of its provisions become law, unless adjudged unconstitutional by the courts. If the president vetoes the legislation, and Congress overrides the veto, the legislation becomes law and the president must enforce it, unless directed to do otherwise by the courts. That is the supreme law of the land. That is our system of checks and balances. To allow the president to choose which laws to apply undermines our Constitution and the freedoms that depend upon it."

Obama would do well to get more advice on this; he may have committed a treasonous act in his first signing statement. That Bush was not impeached by a derelict Congress is no excuse for Obama to also subvert the Constitution.
