You Can Do Better Obama

I thought Obama was making a major error or was trying to appease republi-cons when he... "announced his intent to nominate" Ignacia S. Moreno to be Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division in the Department of Justice.

However, after this current report of apparent republi-con obstruction... GOP plans 450 climate bill changes, it confirms Obama is making a huge mistake. He needs to appoint a battler on the environment in the Dept. of Justice, not one who fights for corporate environmental rights. If Obama goes through with this appointment, it would appear to me that Obama is in bed with corporations and could really care less about serious issues involving a Progressive stance on the environment.

His latest turns towards the center, military tribunals, stopping the release of torture photos don't have me as near upset as this chance view on the environment.

Let me clarify... I'm off his mailing list for now. Don't get me wrong, Obama is still 100 times better than bu$h/cheney, but it does appear he is channeling his inner Bill Clinton.

I haven't paid much attention to his appointments, but it seems he's pretty much going to do the centrist thing no matter what. It's crazy making how the dems seem to capitulate, especially when the 'pukes are imploding, but I can't get too worked up about each thing any more. The next generation will just have to deal with a full blown environmental crisis rather than a growing one - that's just like humans to put things off until they have no choice but to face the consequences. Maybe my great grandchildren will be born with gills, eh?
