Obama Scrubs Transition Web Site

The Obama transition team was apparently taken aback by all of the Internet chatter over the weekend about its mandatory public service proposals for middle and high school students and the gun control proposals discussed here over the weekend. The 20 some agenda areas like Urban Policy and Iraq have been replaced by this single entry under Agenda:

The Agenda

President-Elect Obama and Vice President-Elect Biden have developed innovative approaches to challenge the status quo in Washington and to bring about the kind of change America needs.

The Obama Administration has a comprehensive and detailed agenda to carry out its policies. The principal priorities of the Obama administration include: a plan to revive the economy, to fix our health care, education, and social security systems, to define a clear path to energy independence, to end the war in Iraq responsibly and finish our mission in Afghanistan, and to work with our allies to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, among many other domestic and foreign policy objectives.

Don't expect the scrubbing to change the policy initiatives, just the transparency with which they will be carried out.

Update: Thanks to the folks over at Pink Pistols, those who did not see the original agenda pages on the Obama Transition web site are now able to see them. Someone thinking ahead scanned the pages and uploaded them so the world can still see the leftest turn this country is about to take. You can see the gun control proposals here by scrolling down to page four of the document.

Hat tip to Yahoo's Gun Issues Group for pointing me to this.

Transparency has not been a hallmark of the Obama campaign; I do not expect it to be of the new administration, especially with Rahm in the mix: the Clinton's weren't exactly known for transparency, either; it's interesting, though, that the leftist illuminati are pulling back and retooling their communication.

Maybe I should rent "Wag the Dog."
