    I guess they are supposed to meet every promise right away. For Example, posting bills online for 5 full days before they become law. Do you know what it takes to set that up? Do you even have a clue about that? File feeds, servers, data mapping... It's not easy, and it takes time. So if they do that by next year..wouldn't that be meeting the promise. Seriously, you can come up with something better than this... How about hitting Obama for his spending after Bush ran up a 1.25 TRILLION dollar deficit during his administration.

    Bush put us into debt to take down Iraq and then to help rebuild it. Nah, we couldn't have used that money here. We had to take down the big bad terrorists and their invisible WMD's. LOL.

    I'm just saying..Did Obama say that he would have that implemented in 3 months? No he didn't. He said he would do it. So, you have to give him time to do it. You republicans really are stupid. It can be done..It just takes some time to set that up. I guess Obama had to spell that out for all the stupid people in America who think websites and file feeds just happen overnight.

    Transparency is not something that takes time to implement. It's something you either do, or something you don't do. So is earmark spending. Either you allow it, or you don't.

    I guess it's useless to reason with a republican. You all think that all of Obamas promises have to implemented overnight. And if it doesn't happen overnight then it's a broken promise. Just simply amazing. It's obvious none of you understand the time it takes to implement what the writer of the article is complaining about. Complaining that the website isn't implemented now with the bill information is just hilarious. I guess none of you ever worked in a technology division. All you understand is Small, medium or large. :cool:

    Obama demands transparency so much even the members of Congress were not allowed time to read the stimulus bill, let alone the public.

    C'mon now, you cannot be serious. This administration has said one thing but done entirely another from day one.

    What we understand is if someone says they are going to do something, then they should do it.

    BO said, "I will...."

    Not, "In 2 years, I will..."

    He has done things he said he would not do.

    He has been less than truthful.

    Nice list of excuses and attempted deflections.

    The original point STILL remains. And please ... attack ME because Obama can't live up to HIS promise. I sure as Hell didn't make it.

    Your failure is complete.:lol:
