So far, so good Mr. President. You're batting 1.000 with me so far, all of 24 hours into your administration. heh.
"President Barack Obama's first public act in office Wednesday [...]
Obama's new lobbying rules will not only ban aides from trying to influence the administration when they leave his staff. Those already hired will be banned from working on matters they have previously lobbied on, or to approach agencies that they once targeted.
The rules also ban lobbyists from giving gifts of any size to any member of his administration. It wasn't immediately clear whether the ban would include the traditional "previous relationships" clause, allowing gifts from friends or associates with which an employee comes in with strong ties."
&&
"The new Obama administration circulated a draft executive order Wednesday that calls for closing the controversial detention center at Guantanamo Bay within a year and halting any war crimes trials in the meantime."

I need a good icon for our new president...

man, I try not to blog political stuff constantly, just because I figure that if you're interested you're already reading it in the same places I am.
Plus it's fucking depressing.

but this...

A "senior federal law enforcement official" told ABC (in person) to "get some new cell phones, quick" because the government is tracing all their lines in order to oust confidential sources, leaks, etc.

That way we won't know the few things we're able to find out about how this administration is fucking us all over and playing Russian Roulette with foreign policy.
And stupid people are happy people!

only 2 more years...
how much damage can he do in just two more years? nevermind. I don't want to tempt fate.
