Eternal Sunshine of the Bush Years

With only a month in office, Obama has really jumped on the ball with reversing many bad Bush era polices. Here's just a few for show:
  • Reversed policy that would allow various agencies to decide for themselves whether highways, dams, mines and other construction projects might harm animals and plants listed under the Endangered Species Act. (story)
  • Stopped the Bush policy that would have allowed oil companies to drill in some national parks such as Arches and Canyonlands in Utah (story)
  • Reversed the policy of Bush's that would have allowed offshore drilling on the east and west coasts (story)
  • Looking at having EPA regulate emissions from coal fired power plants, that Bush didn't want to regulate (story)

It's like we are all living in the movie "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and slowing having the bad memories of the past 8 years erased. If you don't get the reference then see the movie.

It's so funny that you posted this! I was talking to my sister last night and she (not Pro-Obama) said 'he's been the President for a month and a half, right? And he hasn't made any changes, just spends money.'
My response to her was 'what?' It just goes to show that uneducated people (or at least people who don't keep up on current events) should KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT!
Then I asked her if she understood the economics involved with all the 'money-spending' (knowing that she didn't go to college, I already know the answer). She got pissed at me when I tried to explain...of course. These people would rather live in the dark than to have to admit they might be wrong.
Side note-this is a woman who liked Palin because of all those reasons that the Republicans wanted her on the ticket. And now you understand... :)

I'm going to vote Palin in 2012 because she's a total MILF
