Obama Executive Orders may reverse Stem Cell Research Ban

There is some speculation that President Bush's Stem Cell research ban will be immediately over turned with President-Elect Obama's first days in office via Executive Order.

I'm calling this Obama's version of 'Shock-and-Awe'. Actually more like 'Shock-and-OH-NO'!

Seems like Mr. Obama will be utilizing this presidential privilege rather forcefully to undo policies implemented by the Bush administration, in a "big-bang" affect.

President-elect Obama plans to use his executive powers to make an immediate impact when he takes office, perhaps reversing Bush administration policies on stem cell research and domestic drilling for oil and natural gas.

John Podesta, Obama's transition chief, said Sunday Obama is reviewing President Bush's executive orders on those issues and others as he works to undo policies enacted during eight years of Republican rule. He said the president can use such orders to move quickly on his own.

"There's a lot that the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for congressional action, and I think we'll see the president do that," Podesta said. "I think that he feels like he has a real mandate for change. We need to get off the course that the Bush administration has set."

So let me get this right... Abortion was not an issue of this past election? Obama is the REAL pro-life candidate, now president-elect?

Well, D.K. , what do you have to say now? Can you say S-T-E-M-C-E-L-L , Doug?
