Is the Honeymoon Already Over?

I am thinking, Where is the change?  What is he doing?

But Barack Obama hasn’t been sworn in and already some of his supporters are sounding a little disgruntled.  I was for McCain/Palin, no secret about that, but even I am not being too critical – at least not yet. 

For instance, this from a blogger at Firedoglake, who says, “The list of disappointments is getting long…..almost as long as Barack Obama’s arm that he used to take our money and efforts to get himself elected.  All we have seen is the short arm he has used to punch us in the face and collect street cred with villagers for having done so.”  Hmmm.

Jeremiah Wright Sees Obama Win as “Mixed Bag”


Jeremiah Wright reminisces about his experiences during the campaign of now President elect Obama.  He says he was kind of hurt when he found out about his removal, without being told, from  Obama’s African-American religious advisory committee last spring.  He said he found out about it while watching television.

Watching the election returns on TV—Wright was apparently not invited to the Grant Park rally—was somewhat bittersweet, he told Sirius XM Radio host Mark Thompson.

“It was like a mixed bag of being proud of him and being blessed to have lived to see something my parents would never have believed was going to happen while at the same time having been put up as the whipping boy by the media to be the weapon of mass destruction to destroy his candidacy,” he said.

He went on to say he would not hesitate to offer up criticism of Obama, reinterating the statement he made before the National Press Club in April 28, 2008.  Direct quote from the transcript is:  “And I said to Barack Obama, last year, ‘If you get elected, November the 5th, I’m coming after you, because you’ll be representing a government whose policies grind under people.’  All right? It’s about policy, not the American people.”
