“Change doesn’t come from Washington. Change comes to Washington.” – Barack Obama August 28, 2008

Give the man credit, that was a great line…almost as good as Reagan’s “Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem”…except that The Gipper followed through on his concept, while the Obamessiah apparently isn’t even going to try.

If change doesn’t come from Washington, then why is so much Washington coming to Obama’s cabinet?

Michelle Malkin calls it “Recycling You Can Believe In”, and she’s nailed it again.

What Washington is coming to Obama’s staff?

  • Bill Clinton’s ENTIRE economic team.
  • Debbie Schlussel points out that Obama has reunited the Elían Gonzalez Kidnapping Team of Greg Craig (Bill’s and Fidel’s attorney, famous for sending little kids back into slavery), and Eric Holder (Asst AG under Janet Reno, and the orchestrator of the jackbootery that facilitated Elían’s return to Cuba, and oppression.)
  • Clinton Senior Advisor Rahm Emmanuel, the guy who grabbed a steak knife at a celebratory dinner after the 1996, repeatedly plunging it into the table while shouting “Dead!” and rattling off a list of Bill Clinton’s enemies.

  • Clintonite chief of staff John Podesta, and
  • (GASP!) maybe Hillary herself!

    Now we have Tom Daschle joining the team…from Joe Biden down, Obama’s team is replete with Washington insiders, and from the look of things, Washington is coming to the “change” team, and Washington doesn’t like “change”.
