If President-elect Obama is able to make that kind of progress quickly, he is going to have the admiration of most folks in this country, and more overseas. There will always be naysayers, but we can overcome that! Great news, uplifting post, Tom. Thanks!

Good god I hope he can un-do everything Bush has done to destroy our environment, food and water by turning back regulations on all kinds of poisons and approved so many pesticides and chemicals etc...that need to be banned. GM food needs to be gone and more support for organics etc....stop destruction of national forests and protection of wild animals strengthened.

This is great news he is already working at the issues!!!

All those who can not stand that Obama is president need to take a look at the issues instead of the color of his skin because here in Georgia I am sick of hearing the racist crap.

I have been telling everyone for the last couple years to just wait until Bush is on his way out of office and see what he signs into law, who he pardons (Scooter Libby?) and what other dastardly deeds he can do as he closes the door and drives away. Obama is just one man who is the beginning. We can't expect him to undo everything, or be a miracle worker. But, we are headed in the right direction. May he and his family be kept safe from harm.

Yes indeed, I like the way that sounds, off and running, especially the science stuff. Our country sorely needs to get back in the game, as the world has quickly caught up and is passsing us in this vital area. We already know how the middle ages were. Why we would want to go back to that is beyond me. watch this list grow very quickly to thousands.

It's a great start, but so much more needs to be done! As President-elect Obama says, he can't do it all alone.

We must come together as the people in the US to demand an end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and a rebuilding of our economy and infrastructure. At last, a president that we can work with, instead of against.

This is GREAT !

Too bad this part of the Bush toxic legacy can't be undone for Christmas; what a Christmas present this would be for us !

Thank you so much, Tom -- This is the best news I've read in a very long time.

I'm delighted to learn that the transition team has already compiled the list for him, & that "team of four dozen advisers, working for months in virtual solitude, set out to identify regulatory and policy changes Obama could implement soon after his inauguration."

Sounds like he really means business! They've been working on it for months!
The change IS coming !

And what praise-worthy organization -- "The team is now consulting with liberal advocacy groups, Capitol Hill staffers and potential agency chiefs to prioritize those they regard as the most onerous or ideologically offensive."

I understand, of course, that the President-Elect does not want to enact divisive measures, but I sure hope that important measures will not be ruled out because they are deemed 'ideologically offensive.'

I have only felt overwhelming hope since I heard Obama's acceptance speech. yes he is only one man, only a man, and the greed seems to always rule, but we can band together to do so much to make a huge improvement. I love the way Obama encourages this working together. ty for this inspiring news.

I know Obama won't be able to do everything but I sure hope he can accomplish a darn good deal of it. He would need a full 8 yrs in office to get alot more done but I will just contemplate this 4 years first.

I heard on the news that he will probably keep his internet network and youtube as way to keep in touch with the people. This certainly sounds neat and is most different from past administrations. You know Obama could probably mobilize Americans for all kinds of actions if needed. Like he said he can not do all this alone. Will be interesting to see how this works out.

Am pinning my hopes on Barack Obama, although it will have to be a 'class act' to clean up the colossal 'dog's breakfast' the Bush administration has made! If anyone can do it he can! Have a lot of faith in his determination to do the best he possibly can!

Bush can't go soon enough! Re wolves: - Just received an e-mail from 'Defenders of Wildlife' telling us that Bush is still determined to push through the killing of wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies, starting as soon as the end of January. (Old 'Limpy' a celebrity wolf was shot down in the last kill!)

Just one more example of the ruthlessness and insensitivity to public opinion displayed by these power mad 'dictators'.

EVERYTIME the Citizens get a President that CAN & WOULD & started to make a difference some IDIOT out there decides that its time for them to make a change & then we are mourning a GREAT President again.. I know this Obama can make a change.. but I just hope the idiots of this world leave him alone do he can hold his 4 years in Office.. I believe he deserves a chance.. Good Luck & God Bless Obama... WE don't have fear.. just fear of another that thinks this is wrong..

Goodbye To All That



A few days ago, Timothy Burke wrote:


"It's schadenfreudey fun to read the ongoing psychotic meltdowns at various far-right sites like the Corner, I agree. But there's little need to take the really bad-faith conservatives seriously now. For the last eight years, we've had to take them somewhat seriously because they had access to political power. You had to listen to the hack complaints about academia from endlessly manipulative writers because it was perfectly plausible that whatever axe they were grinding was going to end up as a priority agenda item coming out of Margaret Spelling's office or get incorporated into legislation by right-wing state legislators. You had to listen to and reply to even the most laughably incoherent, goalpost-moving, anti-reality-based neoconservative writer talking about Iraq or terrorism because there was an even-money chance that you were hearing actual sentiments going back and forth between Dick Cheney's office and the Pentagon. You had to answer back to Jonah Goldberg not just because making that answer was arguably our responsibility as academics, but also because left alone, some of the aggressively bad-faith caricatures he and others served up had a reasonable chance to gain even further strength through incorporation into federal policy.

There are plenty of thoughtful, good-faith conservatives who need to be taken seriously. And the actual conservatism of many communities and constituencies (in Appalachia and elsewhere) remains, as always, a social fact that it would be perilous to ignore or dismiss. (...)

But I think we can all make things just ever so slightly better, make the air less poisonous, by pushing to the margins of our consciousness the crazy, bad, gutter-dwelling, two-faced, tendentious high-school debator kinds of voices out there in the public sphere, including and especially in blogs. Let them stew in their own juices, without the dignity of a reply, now that their pipelines to people with real political power have been significantly cut."

I think he's right, and I plan to act accordingly. Until last Tuesday, I felt I had to take arguments made at, say, The Corner somewhat seriously. They were, after all, arguments that were likely to be taken seriously by people in charge of our government, and by some voters. Starting now, though, that changes. I will write about those arguments if they seem to be gaining broader currency, and I can imagine writing a thoughtful post on, say, what's gone wrong with the conservative movement in which I might quote them. I will also keep reading them, just because I think it's a good idea to know what other people are saying. But I will not feel any general need to point out when they are wrong. They have no more power. Some of them have gone so far over the edge that they have lost any credibility they might ever have had. I wish them well, but I will not comment on them unless I see some particular reason to do so. I now have the luxury of debating only thoughtful, sane conservatives who argue in good faith, and I intend to enjoy it.

If anyone can undo much of the Bush disasters it's Obama. A political strategist on Imus (I watch the show to find out what the opposition is thinking), said Obama has an IQ that is possibly higher than any president we have ever had. Watching him do the unthinkable during the campaign by dodging every sniper attack and land mine in his path tells me he will use every resource at his disposal and creative methods unheard of to get this country on track.

Something else few have mentioned: being a runner and physically fit, Obama has much clearer thinking and stamina than the average person. He also eats well (salmon and broccoli, water), rather than sugary treats. There is no real secret to his genius. By keeping our system clean, physically fit, spiritually aware, focused on priorities and keeping our egos in check, we too can raise our ability to make great changes in our lives. We have much to learn from Obama, and I'm glad I was born to see this man in action.

He is no messiah, but he is a rare anomaly to rise to power and observe. I believe he will break through many barriers and put America on a positive track. I have no doubt Obama will do more than he claims he would. I have some doubts that America truly deserves him. I hope I'm wrong on the latter. Thank you Tom.

Obama's the right man for the job. Let us pray for his long life. He is less political and more practical and determined to take care of the needed business at hand. He can represent the people, rather than the big money interests. He has potential for greatness. He may also reflect the prevailing sentiment in the USA for positive change toward the interests of the greater good -- what we really need now!

If you want to susmit your own great ideas directly to Obama, go to "change.gov", select the topic, and send an email. I've already done it! And apparently an 8 year old girl has been writing him. She asked him to make recycling mandatory, among other things. I agree with her wholeheartedly.

Interesting. We should all give The One our loyalty and respect according to His supporters. Funny how that loyalty and respect was never there for Bush from day one. Fox news was the only news station reporting fair and exposing the facts and it still is the number 1 station... We as Americans do not "Give" our loyalty; politicians have to earn it. We do not have to show respect; politicians have to earn it. The only loyalty and respect we as Americans need show is to our nation, and to the United States Constitution. We do not owe our loyalty to these temporary occupants. They will be gone in four or eight years, but we remain. Obama has shown nothing to me accept words, a great speaker, yes he inspires, a junior senator with little experience and did not vote on the issues – Obama is Media made with lots of help from Oprah and yes his racial friends, which will want to collect payback time soon. You listened to a lot of crap and the biases media and grass roots sites. There is a lot to be said about the health of society’s central institutions: family, church, and school. Capitalism sure didn’t hurt Obama to become President and it’s that same system that gave him the freedom to be what he is today, yet Obama wants to take away that freedom and turn us into a country dependent on BIG government programs – huge health care , higher taxes, and the list goes on. Surely, you must know it was Carter’s, Clinton’s and Obama (Acorn) who helped with the bailout they created. . I want my constitutional rights protected – Obama will change that – How could you let that happen and you call yourself grass roots of what Atheist’s, world global order. Maybe you do not like America. Take the blind folders off. We cannot sit back and watch our constitution be stripped away and in four years, he could do a lot of damage. I pray that Obama finds God and a spiritual balance, which he surely lacks.

It has been over 25 plus years since they took prayer out of schools and look what are high schools are doing now over 33 percent of all children do not know what gender they want to be and yet you think it is cool to support gay rights. The problem with GLSEN is they won’t be happy until every school system is bombed with their agenda, just like what happen in CA, those children not even 5 years old. I know I work with children and teens. Television, TV Ads and Movies have desensitized our youth and YOU. However, you cannot see our world slipping away can you. Yet you say you believe in nature very unbalanced America. Crimes have tripled; schools have guards with guns – look how our society has become. Un-Godly Nation. Remember half of the County voted for McCain and not because Obama was black. It is ignorant and uneducated to blame everything on President Bush; it is a blessing that we have been safe since 9/11. World threats, they are real, you will see Obama will not be bringing the troops home, in fact, we are going into more war. However, when Obama was campaigning he told millions he was going to bring all the troops home. Wake up and count your blessings. There were 535 members in Congress and since 2006; the democrats ruled the senate floor. Having a congress that swings to far left and far right is never a good thing – you had better hope that congress does not become complete liberal government.

generation X cares, about the killing of Wolves, environment, world poverty, but I guess human rights of their own species apparently has no value – how sick is that!

95 percent of blacks voted for him knowing he supported abortions and same sex marriages. I think what bothered me the most is he told Christians voters he was for Pro-Life. Anything to get a vote. I find it amusing that it was the 78 percent of the black vote that voted to ban gay marriages in CA. Let us pray that the next time blacks vote for a candidate it is not by his color, but his accomplishments. Make no mistake – these new leaders with Obama have no intention of shifting focus from their big three issues: abortion, gay marriage and judges. Obama will soon be ensconced in the Oval Office, with all the people who helped put him there lined up outside for goodies. First Barack Obama has pledged to pay for abortions with our tax dollars. According to his own web site, he is an original co-sponsor of the "Prevention First Act," What this reasonable-sounding languages disguises, of course, is the ugly reality that the Prevention First Act would actually force insurance companies to fund, doctors to prescribe, and pharmacies to dispense, abortifacient contraceptives. "Providing compassionate assistance to rape victims," when translated into plain English, means forcing you and I to pay for morning after pills and abortions." If passed, the Freedom of Choice Act would nullify any and all restrictions on abortion, from parental consent laws, to waiting periods, to informed consent provisions, and the like. All of the hard work of pro-lifers over the past three decades would be swept away. There are very few rape victims of abortion; most are using it as a form of birth control - sick. Pro-lifers will march in Washington before paying one penny of our tax dollars for abortions. In addition, we will fight to keep our first and second amendments. Millions of Man and Woman will not allow this to happen to our Country, and yes we are the ones who voted for McCain/Palin. Pro-Life and Family values. Un-Godly Nation! I will pray for Obama that he finds peace, balance and God.

Charlene..You continue to eat your FOX news most biased MEDIA in existence. You have the right to YOUR point of view BUT so does every darn other person here. President Bush did more to harm your constitutional rights but since you don't believe that why don't you go worship him since he is so innocent.

No body is pushing Atheism down your throat, what an ignorant statement. But you are welcome to have it. No one is forcing "gay agenda" in schools either.

Yeah crimes have risen especially when we have a culture climate of violence that exists and is supported by media and our leaders who believe in nothing but war and death.

If you don't like it ,why don't you try a peace rally some where. I don't see you jumping up to stand against it. If more people supported peace instead of making grass roots types of people and anti war people out to be some kind of maniacs maybe just maybe the world could change for the better.


And the worst comments is that women mostly use abortion as birth control. No they don't. Abortion is one of the hardest choices most women ever face. And it should always be their choice to make or face. Not you telling this woman or that women they should not be allowed. It is interesting though that a large number of women who get abortions are Christian and have been brought up Christian but would rather face abortion than being ostracized by their church or community. Really tells alot about the lack of Christian forgiveness and compassion and the atmosphere of fear that exist there as the ruler! But I guess you would rather support your pro-life movement oH wait...sounds like a grass roots effort of some kind...oh dear! I thought you were against those.

Sorry but as an American you are a part of this "un-Godly" nation and are a contributor especially when you act as if you are morally superior to every one else. United we stand divided we fall. If you don't like it, then leave.

Word on the street is that Fox News is flailing aimlessly and eating their own, and the Republican Party is struggling to find itself. You best get with them and find out what the new agenda is because most of them are turning to Obama for guidance, if you haven't heard. Otherwise, you look foolish while wandering aimlessly alone in the desert without direction.

EXCELLENT JODI, EXCELLENT!!! I couldnt have said it any better...but i shall add,

since dum-dum took office, teenage pregnancy is on the rise and so is abortion...check your stats...oh, but wait FAUX news doesnt "DO" statistics unless they get to "make them up""
and ever hear of "SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE" I want it kept that way, and it will remain the same.
its not against the law unfortunately to report false news that Faux is so famous for,
methinks someone hasnt been paying attention to the facts or the truth or whats been going on in the REAL world, too busy living in a faux one.
everyone is pro-life...thats not what pro-CHOICE stands for, it stands for choice, and my choice will never be taken away to be returned to the dark ages, its just never going to happen, same sex marriage? the traditional divorce rate from the "christians" happens to be above 50%, so i suggest you figure out your own issues before you tell someone else how to live their lives...
nothing but misinformation, hypocrisy and continued division...
time for change and we are so grateful we got it...and i wont thank GOD, because HE didnt do it, we did!!! OH YES WE CAN, AND YES WE DID, BY A LANDSLIDE, ROFLMAO!!!

Wolves are among the creatures that have identified, defined and reprsented this country for several centuries. The wolf has represented our ferocity and determination in defending our country. The horse has identified us as a people who feel a closeness to the natural ways of doing things; and historically, the horse has been a part of both the cowboy and the native american image. The bear has defined the United States as an immovable force in battle and in war. The eagle represents our ambitions to rise above everything/everyone else regarding human rights, freedom, education, technology, economic prosperity, and the list goes on.

If we are going to start killing wolves, why don't we go ahead and start serving up the bald eagle at Thanksgiving and ordering up a bunch of horse burgers (hey, they gotta be better for us than ham burgers...) the next time we do the drive-through thing.

The wolf is an american icon. We need to treat it as such...
