Pretty picture ...

Certainly, Obama-baby is proving her point. So far Obama has lied about most things he professed that he would do or that he believed in and for the rest he has Rahm Emanuel to ensure that his fake proposals to Congress get sabotaged. Being personally less offensive than Torturer Bush doesn't make Obama a good-guy by default, no matter how much one may wish it so. Obama may not have taken up the torture-banner completely yet but he is in the process, or at least very close, to doing so. Since open-government Obama appears to relish secrecy almost as much as Bush did, it's possible that Obama has already done so.

Not much hope so far ...
