They Only Liked Obama's 'Sweeping Change'
Just three days after Obama's Inauguration, ABC and CBS were tripping over themselves to sing the praises of the newly sworn-in President for bringing his 'sweeping change.' Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos told Diane Sawyer: "Change, which was the headline of the Obama campaign. And this first week was disciplined and strategic like that campaign, all designed to show that the President is moving on all fronts to bring change."
And Sawyer claimed it was "change the tone and change it at warp speed."
Meanwhile, on CBS, Bob Schieffer seemed to worship Obama as he rambled on about the transparency he would bring and special interests he would push aside:
And with the severity of the problems he faced, no human, no matter how confident, it seems to me, could look out on that crowd and not wonder: “Can I live up to the expectations of all those people?” Yet, in the three days since then, he has laid out an ambitious program, promises of more transparency in government, new walls between the government and special interests by executive order. He will close Guantanamo prison and outlaw torture. He has told the world that we will practice what we preach.
They all just seem like terrible jokes now.
