I’m sure anyone you meet can tell you all about the self executing rule that the Democrats are now relying upon to pass their health care boondoggle.
They will know all about the “Slaughter solution.” It will be “transparent” to them.
Because this is the most “transparent” administration in history.
Democrats routinely demonized the Bush White House as “the most secretive administration in history.” But it is now a documented fact that the Obama administration is at least 50% more secretive than Bush:
PROMISES, PROMISES: Is gov’t more open with Obama?
By SHARON THEIMER Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) – The government’s use of legal exemptions to keep records secret rose during President Barack Obama’s first year in office, despite promises of increased openness, an Associated Press review found.
The review of annual Freedom of Information Act reports filed by 17 major agencies found that overall, the use of nearly every one of the open-records law’s nine exemptions to withhold information rose in fiscal year 2009, which ended last October. [...]
Major agencies cited that exemption to refuse records at least 70,779 times during the 2009 budget year, compared with 47,395 times during President George W. Bush’s final full budget year, according to annual FOIA reports filed by federal agencies. Obama was president for nine months in the 2009 period.
This lack of transparency – hypocritical as it is because Obama demagogued Bush while promising to be so much better – has taken root in health care. His “transparency” is an outrageous and incredibly cynical lie just like all his other outrageous and incredibly cynical lies.
The Democrats are like the “Mr. Brooks” character portrayed by Kevin Costner: self-designated pillars of the community who are all the while actually brutal mass-murdering schizophrenic psychopaths. They say one thing in public, but the very ugly truth is a very different thing behind closed doors.
Barack Obama – who was THE most liberal U.S. Senator in Congress the year he announced his candidacy for president (in 2007) – stated as his core promise that he would “transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars.” But it turns out that he was a hard-core partisan ideologue radical. It turns out that he is the most polarizing president in history. It turns out that he would see this country erupt in flames not seen since the Civil War (when Republicans were as usual in the right and Democrats were as usual the party of genuine depravity) in order to impose an unpopular “fundamental transformation” onto the American people.
Now this lying demagogue – who attacked the reconciliation strategy as “majoritarian absolute power” right out of the ugliest pages of the Karl Rove playbook, and who claimed that anyone who would pursue such a strategy doesn’t believe in government – is now hypocritically and cynically embracing a strategy that makes reconciliation look positively tame. I mean, at least you actually VOTED with reconciliation, even if that vote was a joke; with the “self executing” Slaughter solution, you don’t even bother with such pretension, but merely “deem” it to have been voted upon.
In the modernized version of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the line from today’s bandits is, “Vote? We aint got no vote! We don’t need no vote! I don’t have to show you any stinking vote!”
Obama is the one who doesn’t believe in government. The man who once said, “You’ve got to break out of what I call the sort of 50-plus-1 pattern of presidential politics. Maybe you eke out a victory of 50 plus 1, but you can’t govern,” and who once said, “Karl Rove doesn’t need a broad consensus, because he doesn’t believe in government,” now reveals himself to be the political anarchist who would blow up our entire political process in order to ram through his incredibly unpopular ideological agenda.
Our founding fathers went to war to rid themselves of a king who wasn’t half the tyrant Barack Obama has revealed himself to be.
And all the while he keeps brazenly trying to pass himself off as something he absolutely is not.
Reminds me of what the Bible says about the devil:
“But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor 11:14, NLT).
