    I'm thinking transparency is important to all sides of the political spectrum and that it's probably the one commitment that Obama and the Democrats in Congress blew the most with the American people..To me it's important but I wonder how others feel about it..

    ------------------------:eusa_eh:

    My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

    Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public.

    The transparency issue should be Obama's like Bush Sr's "read my lips" or Bush Jr's "mission accomplished"...but that is not going to happen since the media is on his side.

    This has to be the least transparent administration since Nixon.
