Presidential transition is dangerously long

  1. Yes, why don’t they just send out a memo that we are “out to lunch” for 2 months, all of our defense systems are down. This completely lacks any common sense but doesn’t surprise me at this point.

    When this war first broke out I remember getting “live feed” broadcast from the war zone- from a military tanker no less. I remember thinking, maybe there are a few more secrets they could yell out to the world while they were filming….


    Not only “out to lunch” but “Gone fishin'” and “The door’s open — serve yourself”

  2. Three weeks has never seemed like such a long time.

    I feel like I’ve been left behind on a sinking Titanic, with all the crew and lifeboats gone.

  3. Like I said before, all presidents including Mr. Bush deserve to finish their 4-year terms (with impeachment as the exception). Since all previous presidents had reaped this benefit, to change this now would be unfair to Bush; plus we would have to deal with a lot of whining dead people.

    I happen to think that the transition should have taken place after Mr. Obama takes office, instead of before. There shouldn’t be any lame-duck president.

    I’m not suggesting we step in overnight and lop off the last three weeks of Bush’s term. The Constitution would have to be changed in order to shorten the period between Election Day and Inauguration Day. The Twentieth Amendment changed the inauguration date from March 4 to January 20. No reason it can’t be changed again.

... and that's my two cents
