Nope, this isn't what Obama "moved on first". The first order of business was declaring Executive Branch Ethics, a pledge to provide open and transparent government, a salary freeze of senior White House staff, a reaffirmation of the Freedom of Information Act, and lastly set up some rules surrounding disclosure of Presidential Records.

Hey Candyce, perhaps we should abort your self-righteous, whiney letter to Pleasanton Weekly. Funny how you conservatives care so much about a fetus, yet you whine about the tax dollars you have to pay to help disadvantaged children once they are born. Save your anti-Obama rant for the Sarah Palin loving crowd at the evangelical church of hypocrites.

Candyce - thank you for speaking TRUTH. How refreshing to read TRUTH in the Weekly. As I read your editorial, a smile grew broadly across my face. It is often ironic how the liberal, "pro-choice", "tolerant" crowd tells us how we should love and live, and yet where is the "tolerance" of an opinion different than thiers? I am so thankful to live in a community where those of us that value life, value all of life, even those who would rid themselves of us in their neighborhood if they had the "choice". You did a wonderful thing speaking up for the littlest victims. Thank you for being so brave. God bless you, Candyce, and Ray, I'll be praying for you at my church that actually isn't full of hypocrites. No Jesus, No Peace.

No Jesus, No Peace. Know Jesus, Know Peace.
