Obama Takes Aim at Bush

After his inauguration, President Obama will waste no time reversing 200 Bush administration executive orders and actions on reproductive rights, climate change, and stem cell research. “In some instances,” The Washington Post reports, “Obama would be quickly delivering on promises he made during his two-year campaign, while in others he would be embracing Clinton-era policies upended by President Bush during his eight years in office.” And the list is likely to get longer in the coming days, the paper reports, “as Bush’s appointees rush to enact a number of last-minute policies in an effort to extend his legacy.”
