The more things change...

Colorado State Senate President Peter Groff has been appointed to the Obama administration and will leave the state house. Congratulations. From everything I have heard, Groff is a decent fellow. He's a statist lefty, but a decent fellow.

According to the Denver Post
Arne Duncan, the U.S. secretary of education, announced Groff's appointment as director of the office's Faith-Based and Community Initiatives Center.

I'm confused. When G.W. Bush started this government program as part of his "compassionate conservatism" back in 2001, it was derided by the left, "including Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the American Civil Liberties Union, [because] it violated the Establishment Clause by using tax money to fund religion." (See this Wikipedia entry.)

Instead of killing it like a good lefty, Obama has continued the program.

Why? Government is incapable of contraction. Obama is not going to give back any power. How absurd.

BlueCarp derides Bush for starting the statist program and Obama for continuing it.

There is plenty of derision to go around.
