    The anti-CSPAN stance of the Obama/Pelosi is gaining notice by the mainstream media now - and the tone of dissaproval grows increasingly strong against the president...

    Obama Reneges on Health Care Transparency

    As a Candidate, President Obama Promised to Put Health Care Reform Negotiations on C-SPAN

    CBS) President Obama wants the final negotiations on health care reform - a reconciliation of the House and Senate versions of the bill - put on a fast track, even if that means breaking an explicit campaign promise.

    "The House and Senate plan to put together the final health care reform bill behind closed doors according to an agreement by top Democrats," House Speaker Nanci Pelosi said today at the White House.

    The White House is on board with that, too, reports CBS News political correspondent Chip Reid. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stressed today that "the president wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible."

    Liberal-leaning Jack Cafferty of CNN rips into Obama and the Democrats regarding the CSPAN issue.

    He actually calls for Democrat heads to roll come the midterm elections!!!

    He is a lying dumb ass. He is a Chicago Politician, what did you expect?

    And what is sad is his supporters either won't care or will defend him. All the while mumbling something about Bush was worse.

    If it's such a good deal for the people, and it's such an "unprecedented" piece of legislation, why wouldn't they want us to see it?

    It must be pretty bad for this group of camera hugging individuals to be running from them.

    Powerful stuff against Obama's anti disclosure legislative process...


    If they wanted your opinion, they'd ask

    ...In this, he fits his party's health care dynamic. From town halls last summer at which tough questions got lawmakers' backs up right through the middle-of-the-night votes on thousand-page excrescences largely unread and scarcely comprehended, the directive from congressional leaders has been to ignore voters, ignore polls, ignore qualms and questions: Just pass something

    ...This is happening on legislation that will profoundly, permanently change our relationship to government. It's reasonable to ask that a vast expansion of Washington's power be based on more than one-vote margins and secret deals, just as it would be reasonable for a senator to, sometime in three months, talk to a concerned citizen as promised.

    This is not the season for reason, however. These are the days of political will. Democracy, constituents - all that just gets in the way.

    The amount of deal making taking place to cobble together the votes needed for passage would sicken the public and they know it. This thing has been closed door from day one. It is the Pelosi-Reid plan with Obama telling them to get him something-anything, on his desk soon.

    The process has been utterly bereft of responsible stewardship, and quite often, utterly abusive of the legislative process at the expense of the American taxpayer...

    Looks like Rush lost a lot of weight and grew some hair. Sounds like Rush, doesn't look much like him.

    I like what I am hearing, no mistake.

    That is what is so remarkable - if a media figure like Cafferty is sounding off so strongly against the Obama White House, this issue has some serious legs and could prove the lead in story heading into the weekend news editions.

    The gnashing of Democrat teeth is reaching epic proportions!
