    Almost gave me a heart attack, until I read on and surprise surprise realized it was Joe or should that be O'Biden acting as usual?

    The monumental hypocrisy in this administration is truly breathtaking.

    Maybe we should all look at this transparency issue as one of those campaign promises that are never intended to be acted upon. Afterall, it is not practical for an Administration to give its political enemies any heads-up considering how often the opposition tries to thwart its efforts.

    Americans have never had eyes and ears on its leaders deeper planning sessions. Our power comes from the vote, where we are able to react to the actions our government takes as a result of these secret meetings.

    Obama did not close Guantanemo he just made it transparent so we can't see it, ya know like we can't see the substance of the material in the health care bill!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    If Obama and the rest of his Party were to stipulate that the Health care reform bill would give America precisely the same health care that Obama and his ilk receive in Congress, I believe the American electorate would swing behind him 100%, unfortunately his notion of health care is decidedly different for the voters than that for himself and the rest of Congress.
    When any Politician promises 'Transparency' in their office, anyone who is halfway intelligent should realise that it is an empty promise as indeed are 95% of Political promises.
