He also froze the pay of everyone on his staff that makes over 100 grand. I like it.


Why not cut them all back to $100000. That's enough for anyone! He could put a little sign on his desk, the redistribution starts here.

So let me get this straight. If my wife worked for Obama's staff, and I was a lobbyist, I wouldn't be allowed to give her christmas gifts?

I could live with that. :)

BTW, I found this quote from somewhat interesting.

For a long time now, there's been too much secrecy in this city," Obama said


As a former Intelligence Analyst, I disagree. To many things get leaked out. Security of classifed information at senior levels of government is terrible.

Of course, I understand that he was talking about being more above board about things the president is doing, but I would still like to see them institute stricter controls on who has access to classified information.

He's just trying to appease his base...cause he knows he's gotta screw them to get this country up on its feet again.

I guess he would need to start a war based on lies and send thousands of young soldiers to their deaths to earn your respect.
