There is a disturbance in the Force (a/k/a President Obama)

I am finding it interesting to see more and more criticism being leveled at , and it's coming from his own supporters:

  • Item:seattlepi.com comment regarding the Obama administration and rendition:

"Having considered the matter, the government adheres to its previously articulated position." With these words, Acting Assistant Attorney General ended a dream. The dream that Barack Obama's presidency would inaugurate a transcendent world order on a new moral plane.
  • Item: MSNBC's , discussing the stock market closing average:
"I thought 8,000 was the floor, and it looks like 6,000 is the floor. People are angry, I'm getting angry."
  • Item: The Nation:What Will Obama Do With KBR?
  • Nowhere, however, does [the White Houose] website suggest that the new administration will work toward ending, or even radically cutting back, the use of contractors on the battlefield, or that those 92,000 new soldiers and Marines are going to fill logistics battalions that have been decimated in the last two decades. What we already know of the military policies of the new administration suggests instead that President Obama wants to expand U.S. military might.
    Keep in mind, despite the rhetoric on the Left, KBR was born long before President Bush took office, and their current contract was renewed previously by President Clinton.
There are others, but this is a start;  barley into his second month of office, the President is finding out that running for President is considerably easier than being President.
