    Obama’s Open Records Pledge Tested Over Citigroup Guarantees

    Obama’s Open Records Pledge Tested Over Citigroup Guarantees

    Bloomberg.com: News


    Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. government guarantees on securities totaling $419 billion for bank bailouts provide an early test of President Barack Obama’s pledge to be open with taxpayers about what they have at risk in the credit crisis.

    Bloomberg News asked the Treasury Department Jan. 26 to disclose what securities it backed over the past two months in a second round of actions to prop up Bank of America Corp. and Citigroup Inc. Department spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said Jan. 27 she would seek an answer. None had been provided by the close of business yesterday.


    With all this talk of openess, is this another example of Obama falling short on his campaign promises?
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Although they're a bit iffy on how they define things. I don't see how Obama's pledge to keep lobbyists out followed by his decision to appoint a lobbyist means that his promise was a "compromise".
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Dude, Mr. Obamaer is the great compromiser.
