Check out ZenYenta, Get a Dose of Reality

One of my favorite bloggers has a great post up about the indefinite detention that Pres. Obama mentioned yesterday, and that seems to have Glenn Greenwald and Rachel Maddow all up in the air. In fact Rachel was just foaming at the mouth angry last night about this.

I can sorta understand how everyone is suspicious after the last 8 years. We have been screwed over so much, by what BushCo did to our Country, and to others in our name. But someday we have to start trusting our President again.

We can't just assume every time he says something it is bad or it will turn out badly for us. Besides, with the way Congress is challenging him at every step of the way, I don't think we have a lot to worry about.

He laid out the guidelines of what he had planned, it is much different from what Bush had in place, and it certainly seems as if it will be above board. But, check out ZenYenta and see what she says about it.

She can explain it much better than I and with more authority too. She also stated that she would have more information this weekend.

So like I said head over to ZenYenta and check her out, see what she has to say and then make your decision.

Maybe it really is time to start to trust our President once again. We can still be wary, and have trust.

Hi Annette. My sister is going to write something up for me to post in a couple of days and I'll post it. I think that the larger points regarding the attitudes that have been displayed toward Obama from some quarters is the more important one, however. This notion that every effort to solve Bush era problems that doesn't produce an immediately perfect result should be met with this level of derision is absurd. And frankly, at this point in time, I do trust Obama, not absolutely, but more than any media pundit, no matter how much our views align. He's smarter and his intentions are clearly good. Doesn't mean there's anything wrong with examining and disagreeing, but demonizing is problematic as far as I'm concerned.
