I've been thinking about American government and i have come to conclusion that it is IMPOSSIBLE for a president like Obama to do what he wants, even to a fairly small degree, when entering the government. This comes from a talk which i saw by Daniel Ellsberg (the guy who published the pentagon papers) in which he talks about the '100 day rule'. This is basically where an incoming government gets has its aspirations hit by existing agencies. The heads of the CIA will say "Look, we've been doing this job a long time, and we think you should just let us keep doing our job." After 100 days, areas of government are dominated not by the government itself, but by the wishes of independant, unelected agencies.

I am neither pro nor against Obama, i think he is a little foolish if anything, because the promises he made were never going to be able to be kept. People talk about corporate control in America, well it is these unthreatanable, invulnerable agencies which let the companies in through the back door. The government finds there is little they can do about it. The question is whether to throw yourself into bed with them (Bush) or try to resist, unsuccesfully (Obama).

This is not a liberal vs conservative question so please keep the boring repetetive namecalling to a minimum yeah?

There really isn't any fuss at all. It's only the rhizome of bearded iris attempting to impose the masses of her roots. I always enjoy a heated argument or quarrel. Please, do continue.
