Topic:Obama’s Laptop Chats and FDR’s Shoes?

The New York Times said,Barack Obama plans to have a laptop on his desk in the Oval Office, making him the first president to have Internet access there. But he’ll probably have to give up using e-mail, since e-mails can be hacked into and subpoenaed.

Message from Washington Post, we will all be able to sit in the cold glow of our computer screens and fire up the YouTube for a laptop chat by President-elect Obama soon, It’s part of his technology initiative! What Obama must do now is calm a panicked nation in a similar way that FDR’s plainspoken chats did. Obama’s will obviously be different than the large-scale, almost churchlike (yes-we-can!) speeches we’ve been used to seeing during the campaign. He’s also done his best to manage the high-flying, paternal-Jesus expectations resulting from weepy election night emotions. FDR’s fireside chats were, of course, propaganda, but people wanted reassurance, and he gave it to them in a manner that was bolstering and authoritative. See, if Obama doesn’t give us something, we’ll be left to the hysterical newsmedia and screaming pundits. Which is actually much worse than feel-good yes-we-can propaganda.

More than 100 requests for presidential pardons have poured into the White House in the past month, as convicted criminals hope President Bush will wipe their records clean at the end of his term. Among those requesting pardons are former junk-bond king Michael Milken, Olympic sprinter and steroid abuser Marion Jones, and the “American Taliban,” John Walker Lindh.

It’s no doubt Obama will give us something–and all of us looking forward to the real activity. Sort of what the founding fathers had in mind when creating the rules for representative government. Save us from ourselves (and the TV).
