  •  If he really supported an open Internet (5+ / 0-)

    He wouldn't have appointed a Comcast lackey to head the FCC.

    Sorry, been burned too many times on whistleblowers and domestic surveillance. I just don't believe you, Mr. President.

    •  but it sounds good. Plausible deniability and all (5+ / 0-)

      he does not make decisions lightly, meaning he'll do the wrong thing but convince you he didn't want to.

      He'll put the wrong people in positions of power so they can do what he knows they'll do and then make a statement that he supports doing something else, so that when they do what they do he's still a good guy.

      I'd be glad to see the last of his Presidency except for two things: 1. It would mean I'm older than I am now and I'd like to put that off for awhile. 2. The next one will probably be worse.

    •  A Comcast Lackey? (0+ / 0-)

      What makes him a Comcast Lackey?  There's no evidence in his past jobs.  He's spent most of the past 25 years in the wireless sector, not really Comcast's area.  The rest of the times he's worked here and I'm not seeing Comcast there.

      If anything he's most likely more anti-Comcast than Julius Genachowski was.
