Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose -- encore

Time for a change:

Less than a month after signing an executive order to close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, President Barack Obama has quietly agreed to keep denying the right to trial to hundreds more terror suspects held at a makeshift camp in Afghanistan that human rights lawyers have dubbed “Obama’s Guantanamo”.

So far, the change appears to be:

1. He walks into windows ... just like Dubya.
2. He supports detention without trial ... just like Dubya.
3. He is pissing trillions of dollars up against the wall for no good reason ... just like Dubya.

Am I missing something, or is the "change" a little bit insufficient?

He can do what he fucking likes. It doesn't change my life a bit. When it does, I'll ask for a vote.

Audacity to Hype

If he truely represented change he'd never have been nominated.

He's a communist, a communitarian, member of the new world order. Bet he's one of those Bilderbergers.

He seems to be very good at given speeches. Problem is there's no substance to any of them.

Suspect that we would get the same result from our Dave after a Gen Election in the UK.

President Obama Clinton III demonstrates that Change means more of the same, not anything different. He's just there to front a Black-and-White Minstrel Show to distract the public, whilst his owners steal yet more and escape to Israel.

He's Tony Bliar in disguise. Who gives a fuck anyway. What's with the fascination about the leader of a foreign nation anyway. Bet he gets shot within six months.

OK, not much happening on the 'change' front, but at least those people interned in Afghanisation now have 'hope'.

Can Anon do anything witty with H-O-P-E?

The US Presidency is wholly owned by the Rockefeller family. They really don't care how much skin melanin any of these employees has, so long as he or she does what they're told.

Though they do like it when people are fooled into believing that 'change' has happened, merely because one of their place-men has been replaced by another one.

Democracy really is the God that has failed.

To Anon.....I think you'll find lack of a better option....a certain amount of fear.......and desperation for something that feels can represent a people more saliently .....gets a nigger elected. Think it's about time we started looking at the politician......when I see him...I'll let you know....
