Rolling Stone: Obama makes sure Bush's papers will not be privileged forever
And Then It Hits You

1/21/09, 3:43 pm EST

Obama has just rescinded the rule that would have let Bushs heirs continue to claim executive privilege over his papers

:

The Executive Order on Presidential Records brings those principles to presidential records by giving the American people greater access to these historic documents. This order ends the practice of having others besides the President assert executive privilege for records after an administration ends. Now, only the President will have that power, limiting its potential for abuse. And the order also requires the Attorney General and the White House Counsel to review claims of executive privilege about covered records to make sure those claims are fully warranted by the Constitution.

2. Every day its a getting closer!
Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey
Everyday it's a-gettin' faster
Everyone said, go ahead and her
A-hey, a-hey-hey
Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love's a little stronger
Come what may
Do you ever long for, true love from me
Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love's a little stronger
Come what may
Do you ever long for, true love from me
Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey
Love like yours will surely come my way

7. Beautiful. Hope it all comes out before they can die peacefully in their sleep.
They need to live with the knowledge we all know what they've done to harm humanity, the non-"base" people of the world.

13. Ah, so THIS is what change looks like!
What a difference a day makes! And Obama is just getting started. I wonder if he's getting any sleep (or perhaps he manages on catnaps).

19. Bush doesn't want anyone to have access to his administrations emails/ computers etc. but it will
happen, last week a judge ordered all data from the Bush administration's entire 8 years in office be placed into the national archives while Bush/Cheney fought it all the way. The sh*t will be hitting the fan it just depends on when it will be most advantageous.
