    I was just so happy and moved that he made this one of his first acts. I remember being so angry when Bush issued that order in 2001

    Me too, Seattlite.  I didn't know about this until signing on to dKos just now, but this is so deeply and personally satisfying for me.  I remember how I felt about this back then and remember wondering, "Who will ever come along and put these things right?"  I guess I know now.  I seriously have goosebumps.

    Thanks, Seattlite.

      But the thanks goes to a man who rejects all this stuff that was left him because it's the right thing to do.

      Today and everyday I commit to do my part to make America great again.

      •  "when appropriate" (0+ / 0-)

        I had to go back and find something that I was reading a couple of months ago.  In retrospect, it seems amusing:

        The president-elect's Web site promises he will reverse Executive Order 13233 nullifying the timely, lawful release of presidential records. John Podesta, who heads the transition team, acknowledged that, as president, Obama will, "when appropriate," reverse that order. Some will remember John F. Kennedy's famous "stroke of the pen" promise for a federal fair housing ordinance in 1960--unfortunately, Kennedy's pen paralysis resulted in an 18-month delay.
