It’s very simple why I not criticizing Obama: anything said between now and the time President Elect Obama takes office is mere speculation. Obama has been somewhat of a cypher and political weather vane his entire carreer, adapting and then disavowing, and the only true actions we have seen are his cabinet appointments. Others more knowledgeable about Rahm Emmanuel than I have already commented on that so I wouldn’t add any value commenting here.
The initiatives he’s putting up on his website are trial balloons, and some of those will burst once they attain visible altitude; others will change in shape and size. Beyond that most, if not all, of his proposals would take enabling legislation which is never guaranteed. I’ll be waiting here for real actions after 1/20.
