    Wasn't that just typical leftist deception, hiding the title in plain sight?

    Since some broken promises are anticipated in every political candidate, I don't see what makes this case so remarkable.
    That assumes the alternative is worse- which it's not. Public healthcare debates would be disastrous for Democrats.

    This is a legitimate criticism. Obama promised more transparency.

    After 8 years of GWB non-responsibility and unaccountability, I hoped for more.

    I have been sadly disappointed by Obama in this area.

    HAd you clicked it when I put it up, it would have been the exact video. Later, you have to look for the title, which is why I put the title with it (telling you where to look).

    I don't either. I get good comedy from the daily show. And good comedy often hits the nail on the head.
