Obama wants to know if you have a questionable past
The Obama transition team is sending a seven-page, 63-item questionnaire to every candidate for Cabinet and other high-ranking positions in the incoming administration. I found question 61 particularly interesting.
Question 61 seems to have been prompted by the controversy over former 1960s radical William Ayres in Obama's campaign: "Have you had any association with any person, group or business venture that could be used -- even unfairly -- to impugn or attack your character or qualifications for government service?"
So let me get this correct, Obama who is set to take office in January wants to make sure anybody in his administration does not have any questionable associations from the past; however he wanted us to just ignore his. Oh OK! As the old saying goes do as I say not as I did.
Furthermore should the media have done more to investigate Obama's past and way of thinking
