The Loyal Opposition

First of all I want to add my small voice to the millions who are congratulating President Obama on his inauguration today. It is a truly historic event in American history. Hopefully, we can now place racism in the dustbin of history and move on to greater things.

I thought his speech was good. It had all the right words in all the right places. And he was obviously better rehearsed than the eminent Chief Justice.

I also have to add a profound "Thank You, and Best Wishes" to Former President Bush. No matter what you think of him, he successfully completed the toughest job in the world. And, he did it without becoming a slave to the polls and the media.

The Loyal Opposition will be the Americans who wish President Obama the very best of luck. They will also be the ones not blinded by charisma, rhetoric, or the adulation of the masses.

Take Today for example:

Obama halts all regulations pending review
Order goes out Tuesday afternoon, shortly after inauguration

WASHINGTON - One of President Barack Obama's first acts as president was to order federal agencies to halt all pending regulations until his administration can review them.

The order went out Tuesday afternoon, shortly after Obama was inaugurated president, in a memorandum signed by new White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. The notice of the action was contained in the first press release sent out by Obama's White House, and it came from deputy press secretary Bill Burton.- Read the Rest Here

Someone didn't take time from pandering to the masses to get down and do their homework. These regs should have been specifically reviewed and targeted so that on day one he could give them a thumbs up or thumbs down. Now, all are on hold and no-telling how many .gov employees marking time for now good reason. Somewhere in there might be a reg worth implementing. It will suffer from delay as the team gets it's act together.

Mr. President, the campaign ended on November 4th. It's past time to get to work. Good Luck.
