You do realize, don't you, that changes in the White House don't REALLY have anything to do with the FCC? FCC commissioners are not accountable to the president, nor do they simply do the president's bidding, the FCC is an INDEPENDENT agency, like the Federal Reserve or the Supreme Court, and like the Fed and the Supreme Court, it serves one agenda: it's own. The FCC doesn't change policies just because there's a new president, that's not how it works.

Yes, Obama is passionately anti-business, anti-profit, and anti-private sector, and I have no doubt that Obama would very much like to nationatlize the wireless industry, but in this case, it is more a case of the FCC and Obama having a common ideology, rather than Obama simply telling the FCC what to do.
