Change you can believe in

ABC's Jake Tapper:

“After consultation with counsel to the president,” said Director of the Office of Management of Budget Peter Orszag in a statement, “I hereby waive the requirements of Paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Ethics Pledge of Mr. William Lynn. I have determined that it is in the public interest to grant the waiver given Mr. Lynn’s qualifications for his position and the current national security situation. I understand that Mr. Lynn will otherwise comply with the remainder of the pledge and with all preexisting government ethics rules.”

What's this? Just The Messiah granting a "waiver" for his Deputy Secretary of Defense -- a waiver from the "sweeping new ethics rules" against lobbyists in his administration.

"Change you can believe in" ... unless The Messiah decides otherwise and it benefits him.

The main change we're getting is Obama changing his mind. Other than Obama helpping people overseas to kill their unborn, what change has he really brought?

They told me if I voted for McCain, I'd get a third Bush term, and they were right!

I've been on this one for weeks; there are two of these cases in immediate sub-cabinet level appointments, and that includes the man who is directly going to run the Pentagon and therefore sign off on all contracts. Yep. Change.

But nobody really wants to see it, do they?
