Obama Agenda Temporarily Off Change.gov
By Philip Rucker
President-elect Barack Obama's transition team deleted from its www.change.gov Web site lengthy policy statements of how the new administration would handle some two dozen agenda topics from foreign policy to taxes to energy.
The policy statements, which had mirrored those on Obama's campaign Web site, were replaced on the transition site with a paragraph saying the new 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."
Asked why the policy agenda items were deleted, Obama spokesman Nick Shapiro said, "We are retooling the Web site."
