Barack Obama plans quick changes

Barack Obama takes over from George Bush on January 20th 2009 as the Republicans leave the White House for the first time in eight years.

His transition chief John Podesta told Fox News many of the Bush administration’s policies would be overturned without recourse to Congress through executive orders.

Throughout his presidency, Bush has broadly used his executive authority to put his stamp on a range of hot-button policy issues.

Funding for stem cell research and oil drilling permits are among the measures expected to be evaluated.

Offices within the White House are preparing extensive transition materials, the president said last week, while career employees throughout the administration are being given added responsibilities.

“These measures represent an unprecedented effort to ensure that the executive branch is prepared to fulfil its responsibilities at all times,” the president told White House staff.

“As we carry out this transition I know that you will continue to conduct yourselves with the decency and professionalism you have shown throughout my time in office.

Now that the election is over let’s celebrate this victory and know that the community we’ve built together is just the beginning. For people who are searching and excited for a great change the victory last Tuesday night are the one we’ve been all waiting American waiting for.

We’ve all heard of Obama’s “Blueprint for Change.” If you’re an employee of the federal government, and you want to see just how it will affect you. According to Eric Pianin and Lois Romano of the Washington Post, there are dozens of proposals in his Blueprint that could change the career path of many of the 1.8 million current federal employees. He plans to look at all the waste, and cut line by line. “I am not a Democrat that believes we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there,” he says. That may sound scary for some, and send others running for personal loans, but bear in mind that Obama has a broad domestic agenda that could move skilled employees from threatened divisions into new programs under his policies. He also plans to encourage young public servants with his sense of idealism to get involved in restoring the American dream through service.
