Change – We Can Believe In?

November 8, 2008

When Obama ran, part of his platform included mandatory community service for middle school and high school students. His change.gov website had the following: 

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.

As of today, it appears that the hard and fast 50 hours has been rescinded and washed from his website just as the One’s Columbia years have been scrubbed from the his bio:

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

Seriously, I am pretty sure that the people who put him office seeking their mortgage payments and gas did not expect to work for it. In 2008, it appears that about 62,000,000 Americans want everything handed to them on a silver platter. 

Wiz of id



  1. A Palm reading of Obama

  2. […] Trust, But Verify « Newt for President? Change (in positions) #2 – Missile Shield November 9, 2008 We saw #1 yesterday with the One’s backtracking on required community service. […]

  3. I love it when people criticize before someone even has a chance to prove themselves.
    It hasn’t even been ONE WEEK yet and already you’re griping about what he has or hasn’t done. He is not THE PRESIDENT YET, and even the biggest political dunce knows that no president can make every decision himself, nor can he please all the masses.
    His message is positive and inspirational, and that’s what this country needs, not a bunch of whining naysayers. Belief is half of being. No one is asking for a handout. Only a small portion of the population are lazy a****, and they’ve always existed no matter who is president. The rest want to work. Simply: people were tired of the wealthy being protected and rewarded.

  4. OBAMA is a sick individual. That cartoons tells it like it is, only the poor are being fooled into thinking he really cares for them. Take the health care, so many without health care, sure we need a change. But his plan is to make you spend up front $2000 if u are single for insurance and $4000 for a family up front for insurance while reducing Medicare and older folks living standards so he can eliminate them slowly. If u cant afford insurance now, how are you going to afford the spend down and If u dont know what spend down means you better find out fast. How dumb some of these folks are to believe in a man who’s only GOD is himself.
