I am so disappointed in the Obama administration. I had such high hopes, who would have thought listening to him campaign that there'd be endless billions for war, but everything worthwhile is somehow too expensive. Not that the other Party is any better.

I guess I'm a cynic but I really didnt expect the Obama administration to be any different than any other.

Given save America's treasures is highly sucessfull and much of their work is done in poor urban areas I am somehwat surprised by Obamas administration cutting projects that are eneficial to neighborhoods Obama claims to want to help.
