"Just words".........

David Limbaugh:
The Obama administration repeatedly implements policies that are in direct contradiction to its benign rhetoric, which is what I mean by "Orwellian." Consider its fiscal recklessness accompanied by promises of fiscal responsibility, including its staggering denial that it is promoting earmarks. Or its boasts of bipartisanship while shutting Republicans out of the legislative process. Or calling its plan to chill an employee's choice to opt out of union membership the "Employee Free Choice Act."
So now after signing the Stimulus Bill and today signing the Omnibus Bill, he's now renewing his lie about no more earmarks?

What about his campaign pledge of transparency, regarding "sunlight before signing"?
  • Sunlight Before Signing: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.
  • Shine Light on Earmarks and Pork Barrel Spending: Obama's Transparency and Integrity in Earmarks Act will shed light on all earmarks by disclosing the name of the legislator who asked for each earmark, along with a written justification, 72 hours before they can be approved by the full Senate.

Note his EOs on Guantanamo and Ensuring Lawful Interrogations that only gives the appearance of actually doing anything significant. The EO on interrogations says much the same thing as the '07 Bush EO that it revoked; and the irony of the closing Guantanamo EO is that it suspended trying detainees in court, thereby prolonging the "holding without charge or trial" criticism levelled at the previous Administration.

Then there's his shell game in regards to drawing down a couple of brigades from Iraq. Go on. Click the link.
