Auspicious beginnings

OK, it's making me very happy to check the news today.

In Obama's first 5 hours on the job he has already:
  • Frozen all George Bush's "midnight rules", including one that would allow the carrying of concealed weapons in national parks, and one that would stop "discrimination" against docs and nurses in hospitals to refuse abortions or contraceptives on religious grounds. .
  • Frozen salaries of White house aides who make over 100k.
  • Instituted strict new lobbying rules.
  • Instituted new ethics rules.
  • Suspended trials at Guantanamo.
  • Instructed military chiefs in Iraq to find out how to stop the war.
Seriously, in a 5 hour period the guy has done more good for the US than Bush did in his 8 years.

He's so worth his salary. Have you ever heard of anyone who ever had a more productive first day on the job? It's all I can do to get my pencils sharpened and find out how the coffee machine works!
