EXCLUSIVE: Agenda disappears from Obama Web site
Wash Times ^ | 11/10/08 | Steve Dinan

Posted on 11/10/2008 11:51:40 AM PST by pissant

Over the weekend President-elect Barack Obama scrubbed Change.gov, his transition Web site, deleting most of what had been a massive agenda copied directly from his campaign Web site.

Gone are the promises on how an Obama administration would handle 25 different agenda items - everything from Iraq and immigration to taxes and urban policy - all items laid out on his campaign Web site, www.BarackObama.com.

Instead, the official agenda on Change.gov has been boiled down to one vague paragraph proclaiming a plan “to revive the economy, to fix our health care, education, and social security systems, to define a clear path to energy independence, to end the war in Iraq responsibly and finish our mission in Afghanistan, and to work with our allies to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, among many other domestic and foreign policy objectives.”

“We are currently retooling the Web site,” said Obama spokesman Nick Shapiro.

The site went active on Wednesday and was available to the public Thursday. The agenda items, which were active for at least part of the weekend, appear to have been deleted by late Saturday.

I sent them a response off of their site the other day regarding their “service” page. I told them that they serve us and that they shouldn’t use the word “require.” That site has also changed.

They’ll just sneak the forced “service” through on a defense appropriations bill.

LOL, the back peddling has already begun.

Obama aka Sotoro got himself in a bit of a fix. He had this great left-wing agenda and then has been saddled with the Trillion Dollar plu$$$$ bail-out and suddenly his advisers are telling him that there’s not enough money in the world to do all the things he planned. Even if he decimates the Military and Taxes Big Business out of the USofA.

Bush and Congress Screwed the Obamatron’s Agenda.

How poetic is that, justice wise?

Can’t fix something if it doesn’t exist.

change.gov.

So there is an Office Of Change now?

He should NOT have been able to buy a .gov website.

Seriously. This internet is screwed.

How does "www.CHANGE.gov" qualify for a "DOT-GOV" URL when it is a 501(c)4?

How is a 501(c)4 allowed to solicit jobs at the email address: "jobs@PTT.gov"?

Just curious.

At least one of our fellow Freepers already has.

A fellow Freeper also posted it on a thread.

I’ll see if I can find it, if you’d like.

I read through that website Friday and was amazed at the amount of work he had planned. We’d all have to be turned into slaves a la Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge to get it all done. It was all based around community organization work, too. You know the saying—If all you have is a hammer, the whole world looks like a nail.

In the old USSR they used to just airbrush people out of pictures like they never existed.

They also took away all of the myobama points I'd accrued! I was totally in 580th place too!

This administration will be four years of ‘retooling’. Man the lifeboats folks because we are headed for the bottom!

The only reason to “take it down” would be that they seek to conceal their agenda,

like all leftists have to do.
