Give credit where credit is due - Obama has done some things this weekSubmitted by ShannonOBrien on Wed, 01/28/2009 - 22:47
I did not vote for Obama. I disagree with Obama on most things. But I think we are being too partisan. Obama closed down Guantanamo, he's bringing back the Freedom of Information Act, he's communicating with the Muslim world in a friendly way, he's shutting down other CIA prisons, he's banning certain types of torture and he retook his oath when it got majorly flubbed --all in his first week of office! Now, I would have liked him to close down ALL CIA prisons and banned ALL forms of torture. His communication with the muslim community does not excuse his foreign policy objectives. But I think we are getting caught up in the same old partisan bickering. You and I vote for people based on whose past ACTIONS we agree with more. We should not forget that we look at the individual issues, not the R or the D next to their name. I would have liked to have seen some of the things Obama has done right so far on the front page of Daily Paul because it pertains to the liberty movement and it helps us remember that liberty supporters are bigger than party politics. Let's remember this next time we are quick to bash Obama.
