Smoooooth ...?

Yesterday, an article in the Washington Post gushed that President-elect B. Hussein Obama's transition has been one of the "smoothest" in history. Hell, I get tired of pointing out left-wing media bias ... but any journalist who says Obama's transition has been "smooth" is a sniffer of leftist thrones. I mean, when was the last time a president-elect's "organization" had to conduct an internal investigation to determine whether any of its staffers'd discussed selling their boss's legislative for political favors?! If that's "smooth" then a saw blade is gelatinous.

More from the Campaign for Working Families PAC:

In the days following his historic election, Barack Obama won high praise from the pundits for his cabinet choices and smooth transition efforts. But more recently, the president-elect has hit a few potholes on his road to the White House. There are growing suggestions in Washington that Bill Richardson’s abrupt withdrawal was the result of poor vetting, or no vetting at all, by the Obama team. And even though the new 111th Congress, sworn into today, will feature a vastly greater Democrat majority to assist the new Democrat president, there are signs of straining relations.

When President-elect Obama chose Pastor Rick Warren to pray at his inaugural, Democrat Rep. Barney Frank reacted bitterly. Mr. Obama repeatedly said after the election that getting a stimulus package on his desk by Inauguration Day was his top priority. Yesterday, he went to Capitol Hill to prod lawmakers and warned, “The economy is very sick. The situation is getting worse. ... We have to act and act now to break the momentum of this recession.” But key Democrat leaders in Congress are insisting that no stimulus package will be passed until next month at the earliest.

And when the president-elect announced his choice of former California Congressman Leon Panetta for CIA Director, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), issued this terse statement, "I know nothing about this, other than what I’ve read. My position has consistently been that I believe the agency is best-served by having an intelligence professional in charge at this time." Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
