Obama Accused of Defrauding Public in a Giant Bait-and-Switch
President-elect accused of defrauding public
'This was a giant bait-and-switch,' says lawyer who investigates government corruption

The attorney who founded Judicial Watch, the government-watchdog organization that has hounded the Clinton and Bush administrations over their forays outside of approved government policy and ethics, says the American voters have been "defrauded" by President-elect Barack Obama.

"He promised change. He didn't promise a second Clinton administration," Larry Klayman, who also has founded and now works with Freedom Watch, told WND today.

"I think we were defrauded. This was a giant bait-and-switch," Klayman said of Obama's pre-election promises and post-election appointments.

Only people on the right who weren't paying attention to Obama from the beginning think that. This taken from a debate even before the primaries started.

I try to believe the people who voted for Obama must've seen this coming. I try to believe that the electorate isn't so naive as to think Obama would really change anything.

Wait, I forgot he's going to immediately end the war in Iraq, pay for everyone's mortgages and gasoline, and end the cronyism and politics-as-usual in Washington, right? Well you can cross that last one off the list.

Re: Obama Accused of Defrauding Public in a Giant Bait-and-Switch
Genius, Thy Name Is Obama

With Time magazine comparing Obama to Jesus, I guess we should be relieved that, this week, liberals are only comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.

The one thing every liberal on TV seems to know about Lincoln is that he put rivals in his cabinet, as subtly indicated in the title to historian and plagiarist Doris Kearns Goodwin's book: "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln." Like Lincoln, Goodwin is always open to contributions from her rivals, although Lincoln was better at crediting their words.

And hasn't Obama talked to former rival Hillary about becoming his secretary of state? Hasn't he had a sit-down with Sen. John McCain? Did I imagine this, or is he even now brokering peace talks between Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

Ergo: Obama is a genius.

Indeed, historians have just named Obama the best president-elect ever.

I don't recall the media swooning when President George W. Bush reached out to rivals, such as Sen. Teddy Kennedy, who was asked to co-write Bush's education bill. In fact, the way I remember it, Bush is liberals' most hated president ever (only because they can't remember George Washington or they'd hate him, too).

And yet no modern president has ever done more to bridge partisan divides and show respect to his opponents than George W. Bush. I do not say this with admiration; it is simply a fact.

Throughout the year and again in his convention speech during the 2000 presidential campaign, Gov. Bush bragged that he had "no stake in the bitter arguments of the last few years. I want to change the tone of Washington to one of civility and respect."

(As a side note: Bush would never have been elected president if not for the "bitter arguments of the last few years," in which Republicans exposed and impeached Bill Clinton, which then killed Al Gore's presidential ambitions. So you're welcome.)

But the point is: Bush was massively chummy with his enemies -- Democrats, communists and the Congressional Black Caucus. So chummy that even they began to wonder if he was a little daft.

In his first few weeks in office, Bush met with more than 150 members of Congress, half of them Democrats -- including five events with America's leading liberal menace, Sen. Teddy Kennedy.

Bush's very first social event at the White House was movie night with the Kennedy family to watch "Thirteen Days," a falsely heroic portrayal of JFK's disastrous handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This suggests to me that Obama's first social move as president will have to be to invite Lindsey Graham over to a screening of "Larry the Cable Guy Saves Christmas."

Naturally, Bush also had primary rival John McCain and his wife, Cindy, over to dinner at the White House.

Bush was the first president in memory to attend the congressional retreats of the opposing party. After two weeks in office, a Wall Street Journal column noted that Bush's charm offensive was "disorienting the local Hatfields and McCoys." (Again: You're welcome.)

Bush even made a special point to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus upon taking office, which -- given their feelings toward Bush -- would be the equivalent of Obama holding a special meet-and-greet session with the upper management of the Ku Klux Klan.

Bush invited the Democratic black mayor of the District of Columbia to the White House, attended a majority black District church service and appointed the first black secretary of state.

And that was all before Feb. 1, 2001. (By the end of his presidency, he would have appointed the first two black secretaries of state.)

Though it was small potatoes after all that palling around with Teddy Kennedy, this is the same George W. Bush who had Muslim "spiritual leaders" to the White House a week after 9/11.

Bush also famously said of then-Russian president, former KGB agent Vladimir Putin, that he looked him in the eye and "was able to get a sense of his soul."

(This made Bush's critics almost as apoplectic as if he had said, "I looked into Putin's eyes and, frankly, I just don't trust the guy." No matter what Bush did, liberals were incensed.)

As president, Bush scuttled the playing of "Hail to the Chief" in his honor and repeatedly reminded his staff to act humbly.

This is as opposed to Obama, who I believe is the first president-elect in history to have his own "Office of the President-elect" seal commissioned.

Like I always say, even if you don't like the current president-elect, you should still have some respect for the office of the presidency-elect.

And his supporters are being advised to lower their expectations. Apparently his idea of change is to go back to the Clinton era which caused the current situation in the first place.

[link to cbs2chicago.com]

His withdrawal of troops from Iraq, for example, is exactly what was already in the pipeline and happening anyway.

Is this just a lowering of expectations or facing the fact of being outright lied to? Well, since they are all going to be rich anyway, guess it doesn't matter to those who voted for him.

And this is because bush is pushing through an agreement with the Iraq government that will tie the US to Iraq for the next 3 years.

So stop blaming Obama for bush's agenda. And just in case you don't know, Obama has not taken office yet. So how can you pimp this 3-year deal on him?

Re: Obama Accused of Defrauding Public in a Giant Bait-and-Switch
The New Old Clinton Administration

When Hillary Clinton became President-elect Clinton...

Oh. She didn’t? Are you sure? That can’t be right. Just look at all those Presidential appointments.

A little over a year ago, one of the candidates for President said, “The real gamble in this election is playing the same Washington game with the same Washington players and expecting a different result.”

Correct, all you smarter-than-fifth-graders (not to mention smarter than the collective government geniuses who seem intent on turning a recession into a Great Depression sequel and charging your children and grandchildren dearly for the privilege of all of us participating): That candidate was none other than Barack Obama.

So far, President-elect Obama has announced (or leaked) the following appointments:

Rahm Emanuel, former Clinton White House senior advisor, to be Chief of Staff.

John Podesta, former Clinton White House Chief of Staff, as head of transition team (and who knows what thereafter).

Eric Holder, former Clinton administration Deputy Attorney General, as Attorney General.

Gregory Craig, former Clinton White House special counsel, as White House Counsel.

Tom Daschle, former Senate Majority Leader, as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Arizona Governor and former U.S. Attorney (Clinton appointee) Janet Napolitano as Secretary of Homeland Security.

Based on a variety of news reports, the President-elect is discussing/negotiating/playing political footsie (or a very dangerous game) with none other than the aforementioned Mrs. Senator Former Rival Clinton and her ubiquitous husband, the walking, talking cash register, for Mrs. Clinton to become Secretary of State. The former President is so intent on keeping his wife out of town (or several continents away) that he is reportedly willing to sacrifice millions in income from questionable sources in order to secure her the position.

The bigger-than-your-Christmas list of other names being bandied about (including such previous Presidential appointees as Bill Richardson and Lawrence Summers) have similar pedigrees. Given the number of appointments yet to be made, it is far too early to belabor the issue.

Suffice it thus merely to observe that we have finally cracked the code of “change you can believe in.” It’s from the appropriately French proverb, plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose or “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”
