Was Obama Believable Then? What About Now?

Seems like only yesterday that candidate Obama said this. But it was Sept 8, 2008.

It was enough to give the media a severe case of amnesia.

7  Broken Promises:

  1. Make Government Open and Transparent. No lobbyists, except for the ones in the executive branch.
  2. Make it “Impossible” for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects.
  3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public. But not to Republicans who weren’t allowed to participate in drafting health care legislation.
  4. No more secrecy.
  5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill.
  6. You’ll know what’s in it, unless you’re a Republican Senator.
  7. We will put every pork barrel project online.

The whole concept of ‘trust,’ both in the President and the media comes into question. Just preparing the handbasket.
