Robert Gibbs, or is it Peter Griffin or Joseph Goebbels, has a problem explaining the lack of transparency coming from the Obama Administration when he campaigned on it. It’s hard defending a LIAR. So Gibbs gives non answers to the question and is dismissive and condescending to the press. It’s a little late but it seems some of the press is starting to ask the right questions. The freedom of the press is recognized in the first amendment of the Constitution because they are supposed to be the watchdogs over the government.
President Obama stated he was going to have the most transparent government ever. He wrote a memo that reads: “My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.” I believe you should lead by example. Obama did not and does not release his birth certificate, or his college papers. He also said numerous times that the Healthcare debate was going to be open and wanted it to be televised on CSPAN.
Maybe he doesn’t understand the meaning of the word transparency, which according to Webster’s dictionary means, “clearness, to make bright or clear; to make evident; to free from accusation.” When there is a contradiction between what he says and what he does you begin to question, what is he trying to hide? What will those documents reveal? What is going on behind closed doors in the healthcare debate? What is going on is BRIBES and preferential treatment to groups that helped elect Obama.
If the healthcare legislation is so GREAT, why the need for the Democrats to vote on it in the dark of night? Why the need for BRIBES? Why are they not presenting the facts of the bill to the American people? Why do they want to put people in jail for not wanting to buy health insurance? Why the hurry in getting this bill passed? Why are the Democrats conducting business behind closed doors? What happened to transparency? The answer is the numbers do not add up and because the more people find out the details the more they dislike it and do not want it.
The Democrats are pushing this legislation to create an ever increasing amount of people dependent on the government in order to garner votes to stay in POWER. It is about CONTROL!!
