Our handsome president himself, as he apparently took blame for not actually changing the tone in Washington:
“I neglected some things that matter a lot to people, and rightly so: maintaining a bipartisan tone in Washington”
Obama is such a phoney. He’s going to act like a leader… oh wait… he *says* he’s going to act like a leader …and he’s gonna do this… and he’s gonna do that. He says kick out the lobbyist, but oops… they are already crawling all over the WH.
Creating a new tone in Washington was a central theme that ran throughout Mr. Obama’s campaign for the presidency.
In his announcement speech in Illinois in 2007, Mr. Obama lamented that “too many times, after the election is over, and the confetti is swept away, all those promises fade from memory, and the lobbyists and the special interests move in, and people turn away, disappointed as before, left to struggle on their own.”
Face it… Barry’s executive branch is just as shady as Dubya’s and now he’s back to selling the snake oil to the press, who will catapult these lofty new promises of hope and change (through him personally, of course) to the masses. Quite a neat trick.
“Making sure that the policy decisions that I made were fully debated with the American people and that I was getting out of Washington and spending more time shaping public opinion and being in a conversation with the American people about why I was making the choices I was making.”
If he were to truly act in a manner the people wanted, he would begin by firing The Bernanke and appointing a public auditor to The Fed.

UNDERSTAND THE FUCKING CONTEXT, UNDERSTAND THE FUCKING CRIMINALS.
Enjoy the face-saving campaign. I hope he stays the fuck away from my city (it fouls up traffic).
