To the editor:
President Barack Obama said upon entering the White House his would be only the most transparent administration, a vague reference to the Bush administration who was accused of being anything but transparent.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is upset, claiming the Congressional Budget Office is forecasting the worst-case scenario with the government budget and spending which we must assume this administration and Congress feel is completely warranted and necessary and which will have no negative consequence for future generations.
Back-room meetings, last-minute decisions, firings and votes are commonplace now in this Congress and White House. Every move, every day, comes as news to an American public overwhelmed with our government’s breathless agenda of change. The corrupt liberal mainstream media, which is slavishly devoted to Obama’s success and have very few questions and an apparent aversion to the truth, even appears to be a bit overwhelmed but still performing their service to Obama.
A different word comes to mind when I think of the Obama administration: subterfuge.
