What happened to Obama’s plan?!?

I just went to Obama’s change.gov website because I was going to start going through his plan and analyzing it point-by-point. Here’s the problem: he removed his agenda from the site. There is still an “agenda” page with a vague generality:

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.

However, all of his policy satements broken down by subject has been removed! So, I am left with one of two conclusions:

  1. He never really meant those plans to become reality and therefore he removed them so there wouldn’t be any proof when he didn’t do them, or
  2. He was taking too much flak for the things he said he was going to implement and decided to remove them.

Either way, not a very promising “change.”

Just an update – I did find a PDF of Obama’s plan on his old campaign website. The link is under the Useful Links section on the right. I also saved a copy, so if he pulls that down too, I will upload it here and make it available. After all, I don’t want to be accused of misquoting his plan as I go through it.

  1. Please put it up? I went to the old site and I couldn’t find it anywhere!

  2. It is linked on the right side of my blog in the Useful Links section and is titled Obama’s Plan. I just checked the link, and it still works.
