Another one bites the dust

"President-elect Barack Obama has quietly shelved a proposal to slap oil and natural gas companies with a new windfall profits tax. An aide for the transition team acknowledged the policy shift Tuesday, after a small-business group discovered the proposal -- touted throughout much of the campaign -- had been dropped from the incoming administration's Web site. "President-elect Obama announced the policy during the campaign because oil prices were above $80 per barrel," the aide said. "They are below that now and expected to stay below that.""

Wasn't that touted at the debates as a major domestic policy difference between Obama and McCain?

Stop questioning Dear Leader. He is Wise, and will do What Is Best for the People. In Him We Trust.

You're treading on thin ice with all this negativity directed towards The Chosen One. Maybe you are a racist. Conservatives are racists and homophobes, by definition. And also filled with rage. Don't forget the rage. And they also sometimes have silly beliefs in some sort of supernatural fairy tale "being." Keep that personal, behind closed doors, ok?

If you keep this up, when you get shipped off to that re-education camp, don't come crying to me, pal.

Got to run - get my bail-out application in the mail. I'm not a member of the UAW but I owned an Olds Cutlass once - does that count?

Jim Geharty over at The Campaign Spot on NRO says that all of Obama's promises have an expiration date. All of them.
