The staff at CQ posted the video below, with the following comment:
Every day brings sharp analysis by smart people, saying that this recession is going to get so much worse, that the problems we face are so much more severe than most of us realize. Today, the bearer of that message is Tom Friedman, whose column in today's New York Times is a sobering wake-up call.
Here's a good example of why I consider Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post to be one of our sharpest political commentators these days.
Thanks to you-know-who!
In four days, President Obama accomplished the following:
•Banned the use of torture by the CIA and all other personnel
•Closed CIA "Black Sites"
•Restricted the use of executive privilege by former Bush officials
•Opened up foreign assistance to family-planning NGOs
•Set up strict ethics rules
•Blocked Bush plan to increase auto emissions
•Fired a shot at Rush Limbaugh
That's change I can believe in.
