Barack Obama – why did I bother?

I am beginning to wonder why I bothered to vote for Obama.  More and more, every few weeks I am becoming aware that he lied to progressives like myself just to get elected.  Okay, okay, I know, all politicians lie.  But he is doing as fine of a job of lying as did/does his predecessor George “The Torturer Bush”.  Consider these articles:

President-elect Barack Obama will not move for months, and perhaps not until 2010, to ask Congress to end the military’s decades-old ban on open homosexuals in the ranks.    Washington Times

After initially backing a court order that ruled pictures depicting alleged prisoner abuse by U.S. soldiers could be published U.S. President Barack Obama will now attempt to block the move, saying the release of photos would make the job of the military in Iraq and Afghanistan more difficult.    TransWorldNews

White House Won’t End Dismissals Of Gay Service Members.    CBS News

These are just a sample of the frustrations I have with this president and his handlers.  

Perhaps that he and his family are completely surrounded by, are constantly monitored by, and cannot escape the Secret Service has something to do with the changes he is making, not to our government, but to his own positions.

New food for the conspiracy theorists?
