Change Has Come - Obama's "Mission Accomplished" Banner
Absent any "attack press", seeing to craft a negative narrative President Obama will likely get away with this lowering of the bar for "change".
If the t-shirts that have been in print from November 5th are any reference the 'Change' that people had been lobbying for was the election of Barack Obama rather than any particular "change" that we can commit to measurement.
Thus I will take a different tact. I will put forth a FAIR framework by which to measure CHANGE. In calculus the measurement of the rate of change is called "Prime".
Since we all agree that 'scientific fact and measures' should not yield to political expediency - I am sure that all will support my efforts to actually MEASURE change.
