So far, the Obama Administration is not meeting my expectations.
To be precise, the reality of it is mindblowingly better than my expectations. From the technological wizardry of the new website to the handling of Gitmo to the posting of the agenda to the new lobbyist rules, the Obama people are not merely ahead of the curve, they have already made at least two complete laps before anybody else noticed that the race was on.

Damn, are they good or what??!

14. Flying shoe technology is the best thing ever!!
Especially the talking shoes--you know the ones that say things like "Farewell you dog" as they fly.

10. Hard to describe--just go there and experience it.
For example, here: They keep you up-to-date with the status of every appointment. And this is just a random example.

12. Thank God this man is the president
Any American who disagrees is a danger to the nation, who plays into the hands of Al Qaeda.

13. The Pay Freeze Was A Surprise (A Pleasant One!) From Left Field
That was just a bonus of the type of NICE suprises we can expect from the admin. Doing good stuff that he doesn't have to. I mean, that was not even a campaign promise or anything. He just did it.
