What a Transparent Obama Administration Looks Like

At the Elkhart, IN rally earlier this week, President Obama said:

"Yesterday, Jim, the head of Caterpillar, said that if Congress passes our plan, this company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid off.

Sounds like great news for the 22,000 Caterpillar has had to layoff in recent months, right? Well, not so fast.

After the president left, Mr. Owens not only did a turnabout on rehiring; he also suggested there may be even more layoffs. Although he said he continued to
support the stimulus package, it wouldn't result in a reversal of layoffs for anyone: “I think realistically no. The truth is we’re going to have more layoffs before we start hiring again.” In part, Mr. Owens indicated in one of the interviews that he did not want to raise false expectations for people.
I guess it's only taken 3 weeks for Obama to define for us what an "open and transparent" administration looks like. Apparently, it relies on lies and deceit.

There will not, nor ever be, a "transparent Obama administration" and people know it...he did not get elected on the basis of "integrity". Week after week leading up the election the public learned more about the suspicious relationships and outright lies he told, yet, they could not bring themselves to knock him down off his pedestal.

"Hope & Change"? Give me a break. I only "hope" by the grace of God that something "changes" so the closed door meetings and deceit are exposed.
