    •Froze the salaries for top White House staff members. This is a largely symbolic act, but might be an important one.


    •Set a deadline for the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Some of his supporters would say this is a great thing because they believe it operates as something from the Dark Ages. Others believe this characterization to not be true, and that no plan will be put place to determine what to do with the prisoners. Time will tell.


    •Fast-tracked the process to apply new fuel standards to 2011 car models AND initiated steps to allow California to set its own standards for auto emissions that are stricter than that of the Federal government. Again, this is a measure that some of his supporters hail as a grand step forward, while his detractors (or flamers) point out that it could provide an additional severe drag on the economy, especially in car manufacturing areas.


    •Signed a detailed executive order to ban torture and inhumane treatment of prisoners.


    •Asked the military leadership to engage in additional planning necessary to execute a responsible military draw down from Iraq.


    •Released the interrogation memos without consulting the Bush staff and/or Bush about it. And they were only partially released some of the information in the memos were not made public.


    •Signed an executive order that restored a 30-day time frame for former presidents to review records before they are released. It also eliminated the right for the vice president or family members of former presidents to do the reviews.


    •Signed an executive order that requires that appointees sign forms saying that they were not hired because of political affiliations or contributions. This is far from an unbeatable measure, but is an important early step towards cleaning up governmental hiring policies. It is easier to prove someone lied when their signature is right next to the statement in question.

    He is willing to sell our future off to the Chinese....



    But the "400 million" Chinese owning more than half of our future wealth that Papa Obama and the Left want to keep giving it to,

    does not bother them

    Funny how that works
    :eusa_whistle:


    Of course, if the Left and Papa Obama can sell enough of our future wealth to the Chinese
    then we might be communist by default, since they will own us
    :eusa_angel:

    This is actually dated, since the debt is even more now

    What is obamas plan to combat global warming and excessive heat?
    Should we make it mandatory to have misters on all public sidewalks? Or should we install some form of outdoor air conditioning?

    Create a "feudal like" state where because of energy taxes
    we will live in "grass huts', like his brother, and the Left elites like AL Gore
    will be living in their mansions.

    But hey, they got energy credits, so it is ok
