Change.Gov Agenda Disappears into the Electronic Ether

Like the shrewd Keyser Soze walking away from the police precinct amidst confusion among his investigators, Obama's Change.Gov agenda has been "disappeared" while criticism from some bloggers was ongoing. The website had offered bizarre prescriptions for our national woes, like mandatory service for our nation's youth, and the agenda for Iraq made references to the now obsolete 2006 Iraq Study Group, which didn't seem very forward-looking and may have been held over from the election to appease some Moveon.Org types. CNET seems concerned about this recent development:
The ephemeral nature of Web publishing does raise some serious issues: if a president-elect circulates a physical press release promising to do something, and then changes his mind, there's a paper trail. That doesn't exist when files are added to a Web site and then quietly removed over a weekend.
Speculation about why the agenda was scrubbed remains unclear. But perhaps the genius of Obama team rehashing idiotic talking points from the campaign season and then making them vanish will make the new agenda that much more anticipated and "electrifying" to us gullible Americans. That is in spite of how flimsy the agenda may be.

But he has the "potential to be a great leader" - while he bends with the prevailing wind. He's been campaigning for 21 months and we've got 48 more to go.

Apparently his first move as President Elect was to take this idea to Area 51. Did you try "changed.gov"?

They keep moving the cheese on virtually every thing that they've campaigned on...the definition of "rich"...this deep commitment to the Second Amendment...energy independence...I'd call it smoke and mirrors, but at this point, they're just blowing smoke.

Morons -- all of you horses asses are complete and utter morons!!

ABWF said...

It would appear this site has attracted a devoted troll. Not a very original one though and all these "horses asses" comments aren't relevant to the posts at all. It's too bad that she/he/it doesn't have the conviction or ability to comment rationally and intelligently about his/her/its ideals and beliefs.

Nephi said...

I agree to be rational when you do, too. So far, I'll I read here is a bunch of crap. Get real, horses' asses, we are in this together.

LT Nixon said...

Seems like you have a bit of a credibility problem, Nephi.

LT Nixon said...

Is this website yours, Nephi? I'd say with posts like "A Turdball If Ever There Were!" describing Cheney and Bush is a class act all the way.

LT Nixon said...

Nephi,

Does this Kos diary from a person named "Nephi" from Utah also belong to you? 9/11 conspiracy theory?!?! Lulz! The litmus test for any internet nut.

Nephi is actually Greek for "Douche Bag". It's true! It has to be because I read it on the Daily Kos.

Sorry about the double post. OH and one more thing Nephi... "So far, I'll I read here is a bunch of crap."

It should be "all I read here" not "I'll I read here"... learn English you twit.

i'd offer that with the flaming pile of dog shit that's been left in president-elect obama's lap from the bush administration, that he'll have plenty of major issues to tackle, very early on. and with that, will not please everyone, every time.

i lived with extreme displeasure under the current administration, you'll survive.

LT Nixon said...

Oh no, where's Nephi?!? Sniper why did you scare my best buddy Nephi away?

LT Nixon said...

Cathcatz,

Bush is so old news. This blog is about Obama. It's our turn to be assholes, mwahaha

cathcatz said...
