New Day in DC

President Barack Obama ordered the government Monday to re-examine whether California and other states should be allowed to have tougher auto emission standards. Within just one week, Obama has managed to roll back many bad policies set by the Bush administration. We have grown used to the top government being brain dead on science and other issues. When we finally hear a president who say things that actually make sense, and that they actually understand issues, it is so refreshing that it is almost unbelievable.

"Year after year, decade after decade, we've chosen delay over decisive action," Obama said. "Rigid ideology has overruled sound science. Special interests have overshadowed common sense. Rhetoric has not led to the hard work needed to achieve results — and our leaders raise their voices each time there's a spike on gas prices, only to grow quiet when the price falls at the pump."

I think the world's issues are inherently complex. So I was cynical about whether we can turn things around just by choosing a different president. But ever since he was elected, Obama has shown much charisma and the will to break from the past. He has brings so much positive energy that makes me feel really hopeful.

Finally I like it that he gave Bush a well deserved slap on the face.

"The days of Washington dragging its heels are over. My administration will not deny facts; we will be guided by them" Obama said.
