January 20th is the date Obama becomes President!

Where is the Bush-man?

Obama took a news conference. He is making up his cabinet. He is getting ready for power. But is the press ignoring Bush?

As Obama said in that news conference:

“I have to reiterate once again that we only have one president at a time. And I want to be very careful that we are sending the right signals to the world as a whole that I am not the president and I won’t be until January 20th.”

How Obama deals with Iran we will have to wait and see. He did say that dialogue is the way forward – it is, without a doubt – but too many people are expecting way too much way too early.

This period is transition. You know it, I know it – so why don’t the press ask questions of Bush? Is it just a matter that they really don’t want to – they have had enough of his so much so they want Obama in office now? It can’t happen.

Iran says – or I should say one of the many officials they have, says that Obama speaking about Iran having nuclear weapons in a no-no.

If Iran wants nuclear power in the sense of providing electricity – who can argue – but they are doing everything to provoke distrust because they are still enriching uranium – something you don’t need for nuclear power.

They are causing problems for themselves. That is what I don’t understand – why bring this to the table when you really don’t need to?

    You ever get the idea, Will, that the world has moved on from Bush, even though he is still president?

  2. Venessa says:

    Julie, I think the world has moved on and want nothing more to do with Bush but kudos to Obama for setting the right tone. If he were to undermine Bush I think it would not be a good message to the rest of the country or world although we all know Bush is a F-ing Idiot!

  3. An American Liberal says:

    I think Americans as a whole would like to slink away from Bush and pretend he never happened. Focusing on the positive message of Obama makes us feel good despite voting Bush the “incompetent” into office, not once, but twice.
    Personally, I think he, Rumsfield, Cheney and others need to be sent shackled to GITMO for crimes against humanity. Honestly, there is no way we can present ourselves as a “force for good” to the world community with the stain of Bush on us. They need to be sent packing to the world court for judgement.

    Peace.

    Will, you do need enriched uranium for power.

    America is pissed at Iran for wanting to dump the American dollar. Almost everything we read in the press about Iran is hogwash, including the lie about wiping Israel off the map.

    But anyway, I can see why it’s all about Obama now. People wanting change but did you see the people he is surrounding himself in. Clinton cronies and others that just don’t make me jump for joy.

    They should be keeping a close eye on the Bush administration right now, I can just imagine what they will do in the next while.

  5. thebeadden says:

    BTW I noticed I had some hits coming from a certain site…I returned the favor. Thanks, Will. 🙂

  6. An American Liberal says:

    Beadden,

    “Clinton cronies”

    Aye, that is a bit disturbing, but given the current crises, getting people with experience is a must. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of Democrats out there with this level of experience that weren’t in the Clinton Administration. Or at least that is how I’m deluding myself.

    On a more positive note, there looks to be a large number of other appointments that should minimize our discomfort (if you believe the rumors). What do you think of Powell as Secretary of Defense? I absolutely LOVE that rumor! 🙂

    Peace.

    I actually like Colin Powell. I can’t help it. I just do.

    Bead – My apologies – I should have said at such highly/extreme enriched state of uranium. – soz! 🙂

  9. Will Rhodes says:

    …and no problem about the hits 😉

    Who wants to interview Bush when Obama is the big story? Besides, nobody wants to read or hear about Bush anymore.
    (However, like an employee who’s just been fired, his keys and privileges should be immediately taken away and a guard placed on him until he has emptied his desk and been escorted from the building.)

  11. selena in Canada says:

    Beadden, how can you like a man who had a chance to stop the Iraq war? If he had said one word about the lack of credible information regarding WMDs, some people would have noticed and perhaps taken a second look.

    He did seem like a ray of common sense until he sold out the country.

  12. selena in Canada says:

    Aye, that is a bit disturbing, but given the current crises, getting people with experience is a must.

    *****************
    Now there’s where you and I differ. The old guard must go, if there is to be any change.

    There are plenty of enlightened people from outside politics that could go in there and start the cleanup.

    Experience is what got us into this mess!

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
