Boy, when he said there'd be "change", he wasn't bullshitting. I do believe he meant it, but... The kind of change he's imposing fast and furious... I do NOT believe in!
Just watch him change the way the President operates... try not to tremble too much with dread and foreboding... must not panic... must keep a level head... two years, you can dump the Obama-worshipping Democrats in the midterm elections... and you'd better, my American friends!
Well, I belive that those who use their brains will see something wrong with that.
The President demanded someone in the private sector resign, and lo and behold, the guy resigns, just like that. WTF?!
This is strange, unprecedented.
And it reeks of National Socialism. And unmitigated arrogance and a feeling of unrestricted entitlism. On the part of Barack Hussein Obama, who's seen by many as likely a fraud, a non-American-born impostor who stole the election and the White House and is now doing all kinds of scary things every day that may very well be invalid and illegal due to the fact that, according to the requirements of the Constitution, he's actually NOT legally the President and therefore has NO authority to do anything as such.
Wonder if Obama's Brownshirts also got to the GM head? For him to just simply step down like that, no fuss made, after being "requested" to do so by the regime in power... is rather odd, unusual, question-provoking, to say the least.

Things just keep getting more and more odorous under Obama's National Socialist regime, don't they?
I know that Hitler bullied the private sector, too...
Was it blackmail? Did Obama say, "No help for GM unless you quit"?
That would be bad, inappropriate, an abuse of power.
Wonder if Obama didn't like him, or if Obama owed someone who didn't like him?
On Monday, President Barack Obama is to unveil his plans for the auto industry, including a response to a request for additional funds by GM and Chrysler. The plan is based on recommendations from the Presidential Task Force on the Auto Industry, headed by the Treasury Department.
The White House confirmed Wagoner was leaving at the government's behest after The Associated Press reported his immediate departure, without giving a reason.
The surprise announcement about the classically iconic American corporation is perhaps the most vivid sign yet of the tectonic change in the relationship between business and government in this era of subsidies and bailouts.
Wagoner has been CEO for 8 years and at GM for more than 30. It is not yet clear who would replace him, or what role the administration would play in that process. GM has received $13.4 billion in government aid, and has been seeking $16.6 billion more.
The Administration should never have made any such "request". Who does Obama think he is, believing he can demand anything of anyone? WTF?
If he's going to make demands, then I suggest he make demands of the UAW, who itself is very demanding and keeps GM's costs sky high compared to those of the foreign competition which is killing the venerable automaker.
This is the cost of accepting handouts from the state. The state, in turn, makes draconian demands of one, limiting one's freedom, intimidating one into forgetting some of one's rights...
This is one of the problems with National Socialism. You lose your freedom in exchange for money confiscated from the taxpayers and used howsoever the dictator sees fit...
Every day, Obama does something else that one finds ominously disturbing. Dammit, if Bush had operated like that, he'd have been impeached! Hell, the Democrats actually tried to go there, anyway!
Ominously disturbing. And reminiscent of another National Socialist from the previous century...
