The missing "Agenda" from change.gov

On or around November 8th or 9th, the website change.gov ceased serving their "Agenda" section. Visitors to the site were met with "The page you requested is not available right now." when accessing these sections. They're saved here via google cache. The saves were done 11/09/2008.
You can download all of these pages here: agendachangegov.zip

Thanks to GeneDios's blog for the link and Nepos Libertas for the photo.

Change.gov purging its policy pages should raise a red flag that Obama/Biden will not be transparent nor honest with the People Obama claim he will serve honorably and fairly as President-elect

It didn't take long for change.gov to to get rid of some of their agenda. Even faster than I thought they would. See my take here. Even though I suggested saving all the pages, I did not get all of them so thanks to http://www.fuckthebankers.com/ for doing so.

  1. Kenny, thanks for bringing this to our attention. I was studying the change.gov site for most of last week and copied and posted and commented on alot of points at my blog here:

    It just blew my mind how little was there at the site now. I remember clicking on at least half of those specific areas that were located at the bottom of the page. Not sure if they took down to update or are hiding it. Most likely the latter. Seems like alot of hard work to just flush down the drain. There were literally pages and pages.

  2. Thanks for the comment, especially since a fairly recent computer crash I lost your bookmark. I have it now and put it on my blog list so it won't happen again.

  3. The original agenda on change.gov was just a "cut and paste" of the "issues" section on mybarackobama.com. While it is impressive that the Obama technical team was able to get the change.gov site up so quickly, it is unsurprising they had to use existing material to do it. The material in the "issues" section must be addressed in any upcoming agenda, but it is not an agenda. If there's nothing forthcoming on change.gov in a few weeks, then let's worry about transparency.
