That's fine. If you don't like it feel free to express your displeasure.

But don't lie:

don't say Rahm Emanuel is not a liberal (4% rating from American Conservative Union)

don't say Obama promised there wouldn't be familiar faces on his staff on in his cabinet (he promised change, he didn't say he could do that with all new people)

you don't have to like Tom Daschle, but don't act like Obama isn't taking the HHS secretary position seriously when he appoints the former majority leader to that cabinet position.

when you say Obama is not doing anything progressive, stop lying and recognize that he has said he will undo Bush's last minute right wing conservative rule changes throughout government agencies in order to protect the environment and unions.

and you may not think Obama's liberal enough for your taste, but don't lie and say that he is not a liberal when he is planning to expand government to help the middle class, to protect the environment, to expand civil rights etc.

just don't lie and don't tell a falsehood and claim ignorance either. that is if you want to have any credibility with the rest of us that you are trying to convince.
