Off to a good start

obama-change1

This is the first headline I have seen in ages that has inspired me to write – as you can see from my complete lack of recent posts.

Everyone was celebrating Obama’s inauguration on Tuesday evening. I was at the big party at Jáma celebrating along with everyone else. But when I was interviewed by a journalist from Lidové noviny, I made it clear to her that I would not believe in Obama until he had actually done something as president to make me believe. I personally was not there to celebrate Obama’s inauguration; I was there to celebrate the fact that George W Bush (that motherfucker) was no longer president.

And on his second working day, Obama has ordered the closure of the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay. Wow wow wow – I may start to believe sooner than I had expected.

    And according to CNN, today, Day 3, he has banned the use of torture while also saying Gitmo is closed within a year.

    Now, if on Day 4 the Recession ends, I’ll be really impressed.

    Day 3 also saw the lifting of the global gag rule, which states that the US isn’t allowed to fund programs abroad that provide abortions or abortion-related counseling. To be fair, it’s kind of a ping-pong ball – Reagan invented it, Clinton repealed it, Bush re-instated it, and Obama’s now just doing what any sane Democrat would do and repealing it again. It’s kind of an easy crowdpleaser move.

    But hey, I’m pleased.
