Change. Or is that just the jingling in your pocket Part 4

President-elect Barack Obama may consider delaying a campaign promise - to roll back tax cuts on high-income Americans - as part of his economic recovery strategy, two aides said on Sunday.

If I had voted for Obama based on the promises he made I'd begin to think I was duped by a classic chicken-in-every-pot politician. I'd begin to wonder if he got his name "The One" based on the number of campaign promises he will actually keep.

The new word the mainstream media use in praising Obama: pragmatic. So, every broken promise is just more evidence of how pragmatic he is -- so, let us all praise The One. Promises are for mere mortals.

Elliot Spitzer must be thinking, why didn't I just say I was "pragmatic" in not abiding by inconvenient laws?
