Roaring about life since 2009

is a thick wooden door transparent?

Not that I needed one more reason to be disillusioned by President Obama’s lies and deceptions, here we go with another one.  This is a campaign quote from Obama about what he would do to a debate on a healthcare bill. 

Hell yes, on something this important open it up to the public!  Or at least the opposing party! 

Senate Democrat Harry Reid and House Democrat Nancy Pelosi are inclined to finish up the 2,500-plus-page legislation themselves behind closed doors, skipping the usual Senate-House conference committee that would include those pesky Republicans.

C-SPAN pleads with Reid, Pelosi to open final drafting sessions for Obama’s healthcare bill

I admit, I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to C-SPAN so I agree with televising these healthcare negotiations just so I can have something to watch at 6am on a no-sleep night.  And if it weren’t for C-Span, where would the majority of Jon Stewart’s hilarious political clips come from?

Let C-SPAN in!  Let this much-lauded “bi-partisanship” the Democrats speak of show its head!  Or does that trick only work when they’re in the minority and need an excuse to influence policy?

Have it good and open,

-Mike

  1. It is intereting trying to watch the administration argue that the process has been open. Perhaps, they will develop a new believable argument.

  2. I think that what is left of their ruling coalition is rapidly coming apart, even Speaker Pelosi has been taking hits at Obama:
