President-Elect Obama to Reverse Bush Policies

“There’s a lot that the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for Congressional action, and I think we’ll see the president do that. He feels like he has a real mandate for change. We need to get off the course that the Bush administration has set.”

--John Podesta, Former Bill Clinton Chief of Staff, Leader of Obama Transition Team

  • Repeal so-called "Gag Rule", a Reagan policy aimed at curbing US taxpayer money from funding international family planning organizations who support abortion counseling. The policy was eliminated by President Clinton and re-instated by President Bush.

  • Reverse Bush's order limiting the types of embryonic stem cell research that can receive federal tax dollars. In August 2001, Bush barred the National Institutes of Health from funding research on embryonic stem cells. Obama said he supports the creation of new stem cells from embryos created for in vitro fertilization treatments that would otherwise be discarded. In other words, let's create and destroy human embryos thus entering a frightening bio ethical dilemma.

  • Reverse Bush's order that lifted restrictions on oil drilling on federal lands in Utah; a move that Eco-Friendly Liberals have balked at for years. In order to become energy independent we must explore and be open to every option. Drill Baby Drill! Besides, Utah is mostly desert? Who we gonna hurt? A few snakes?

  • Obama also wants to close the Guantanamo Bay prison, and release the 250+ terrorists back into the world society. Sounds like a great idea Mr. President-Elect.
