Obama’s First Couple Days

By | Jan 24, 2009

President Obama has had a busy first couple days.  He closed CIA detention centres overseas (including Guantanamo Bay), canceled midnight legislation pushed through by the Bush regime, and is working on his economic stimulus package.  He’s made moves for an open and accountable administration, which is especially encouraging in light of the criticisms that were often pressed on the Bush regime over the years for their habit of internalizing decisions and activities.

It’s encouraging to see the man working so quickly on achieving his election promises – there is a lot of pressure and hopes placed on him and I feel that if he is able to make some early strides on just a couple issues he will earn moral credibility that will give him the time and flexibility to work on the difficult issues.  I said on his Inaugeration Day that I suspect he’ll be an efficient President, and so far he is living up to that.

It’s been an interesting week to follow American news, and I’m looking forward to what happens next week.  I’m really intersted to see what his foreign policy initiatives are – espcially with regards to the ongoing issues regarding Gaza.
