Truth, Justice and the American Way

An Obama administration cornerstone objective should be to reverse the "up is down" spin of the Bush White House.

a) Rely on truth. That is it -- simple truth.  Hire Ross Perot to make graphs for your fireside chats.
b) Rely on justice. Close Gitmo, stop torture and renditions, end the killing, end the "war on" drugs and terrorism and let policemen do their jobs.
c) Rely on the American Way. Fairness, extra consideration for the needy; quality education for all; lend an international hand where needed; and get a cuddly dog and cat in the White House.
