Change? What Change?

By now most people are aware that Barack Obama's first big presidential decision was to hire Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff. Unfortunately for the true believers, this pick shows that the "change" they'd been promised was nothing more than a campaign slogan.

As if it is not bad enough that Rahm Emanuel is a long-time Washington insider, he was also the chairmen of the board for Freddie Mac during the subprime mortgage scandal.
"According to a complaint later filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Freddie Mac, known formally as the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, misreported profits by billions of dollars in order to deceive investors between the years 2000 and 2002."

Naming Emanuel the presidential chief-of-staff is a clear sign that the Obama administration has no intention of going after those who were directly responsible for the nation's current economic crisis. With Democrats rushing to put together another $300 billion bailout package, the Obama administration is looking less like change and simply more of the same.

WHAT THE F*CK?!?!?!?!?!!!!!

Where the hell are all the supporters for "Change" on this one? Yeah - that's right - they must all still be DRUNK from campaign night and not noticing what their Ass-iah just scooted past them in their stoopers.

Change? What change?? No wonder the Clintons didn't mind Obama winning. Sounds to me they're pulling Obama's strings!
