No, he just rationalized it away saying that it's more important to pass the bill and hopefully become president so he can work to remove the bit about telecom immunity.
I can see his point, but a lot of people were really watching to see how this played out. Vowing not to do things and then doing exactly those things is not the best way to get people to believe in you.
Can't see the point myself. Hasn't any prez got their woork cut out undoing the damage of the last one ? hate to quote the familiar, but its create problem-reaction-solution all over.
I think theres a lot to be said for political rhetoric in graphic form, I'm trying to get a community based comic book anthology out of punk roots. If the wordage is too confusing maybe relating to pictures will be easier. Good work !
I like how you avoided ending the headline with a preposition, by saying "Change In Which We Can Believe" rather than "Change We Can Believe In."
But then, you had to go and split an infinitive! "Obama vows to not vote for any bill..." Ouch!
"Obama vows not to vote for any bill..." would have been better.
"Obama vows to vote against any bill..." would have been just perfect.
But of course I've never been one to pick nits. Congratulations, by the way, on "winning another third":http://www.swell3d.com/2008/07/anaglyph-proves-hermiones-ches.html of a "Gleeson Researcher of the Century Award"!
I worried about you, checking your wife's blog for mentions of your demise on a number of occasions. Hearing from you is quite a relief.
You're the first person to mention not ending on a preposition, and it makes me glad that someone finally did. His slogan drives me batty.
Regarding my split infinitive: I was not happy with the result, but went through a number of iterations of different wordings trying to achieve a modicum of visual symmetry. (I then forgot to align both blurbs after moving a guide, completely throwing off some other symmetry. Geez.)
I'm stoked about the new third of the award. I'm putting that up lickety-split.
Yeah, I'm alive. Sorry to make you worry. It's just that near the end of 2006, I became really, very, terribly sick. Of blogging, I mean. I just couldn't stand it. I took a year-long "Internet Holiday," using the Internet only when I had to for work, and happily ignoring it the rest of the time. It was just what I needed.
Now I'm back to blogging, but not at the old domain. I launched "Swell 3D" because the world needed a 3-D anaglyph website.
