Another Day, Another Broken Promise by Obama

The presidential election of 2008 was full of promise.

The reality of 2009 is full of broken promises.

Perhaps you remember this campaign promise from a 2008 debate:

That’s what I will do in bringing all parties together, not negotiating behind closed doors, but bringing all parties together, and broadcasting those negotiations on C-SPAN so that the American people can see what the choices are, because part of what we have to do is enlist the American people in this process.

Well, C-SPAN remembered and issued a letter to Congressional leadership asking to televise the proceedings as promised.

Will this promise be upheld? I wouldn't hold my breath...

With the most invasive legislation in history being "debated" behind closed doors, against the will of most Americans, is it any wonder that there are calls for a general strike?
