A big question mark

A lot of people seem to think that Barack Obama promised to reveal all state secrets from the Bush administration. I don’t remember ever hearing or reading anything of the sort. Am I deaf or something? Also I notice that these people who hear some phantom Obama tend to split the matter into do-or-don’t. Remind me, please; wasn’t that what Bush used to do?

There was a time when other people seemed not to hear what I heard. For instance, they did not hear Hillary Clinton say that she and Obama would be ‘fine’ once the primaries were over; there were days I began to doubt that promise, but I did hear it and she did keep her word, scrupulously. And I think that, after getting bombing-of-Iran wrong (likely because he misunderestimated Bush relative to Cheney), Scott Ritter also will be wrong when he assures us that Hillary Clinton will fail in her job; but we’ll see.

Parenthetically related: It is interesting that the two appointments Obama has made of big-name politicians whom I would not like to see appointed—Bill Richardson and Tom Daschle—both got dashed on the rocks. Apparently the gods are using me as a spokesperson.

Oh, wait, that’s Rush Limbaugh ...
