As of noon January 20, two things well happen;. George W. Bush will depart Washington with his principles intact. Whereas BO a/ka/a one a/k/a messiah a/k/a Barack Obama will assume the presidency with his principles already shattered, Bush as attributed by David Alexander, Reuters :
“I would like to be a person remembered as a person who, first and foremost, did not sell his soul in order to accommodate the political process,” Bush said in the interview. “I came to Washington with a set of values, and I’m leaving with the same set of values. And I darn sure wasn’t going to sacrifice those values.”
“I’d like to be a president (known) as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace; that focused on individuals rather than process; that rallied people to serve their neighbor,” the president added
Meanwhile in Universe Obama, Samantha Power is back. Did she ever really leave? From the Associated Press :
A former adviser to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign who once called Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton a “monster” is now working on the transition team for the agency that Clinton may lead.
During the Democratic primary campaign, Power called Clinton “a monster” in an interview. She then resigned, calling her remarks inexcusable and contradictory to her admiration for Clinton.
The only principle to which BO adheres to achieve personal power at any cost. There simply is no remark, or tactic which BO will not excuse to attain politcal office.
