The sheer Hypocrisy and Hubris of the Democrat Party still Amazes the Senses...

In the first corner we have the president from his own White House Website:
SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government

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. [Yadda, Yadda, Yadda...]

Government should be participatory. [Yadda, Yadda, Yadda...]

Government should be collaborative. [Yadda, Yadda, Yadda...]

I direct the Chief Technology Officer, in coordination with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Administrator of General Services, to coordinate the development by appropriate executive departments and agencies, within 120 days, of recommendations for an Open Government Directive, to be issued by the Director of OMB, that instructs executive departments and agencies to take specific actions implementing the principles set forth in this memorandum. The independent agencies should comply with the Open Government Directive.

Apparently, San Fran Nan and Dingy Harry did not get the memo....

Congressional leaders fight against posting bills online

Reps. Brian Baird, D-Wash., and Greg Walden, R-Ore., are circulating a petition among House lawmakers that would force a vote on the 72-hour rule.

Nearly every Republican has signed on, but the Democratic leadership is unwilling to cede control over when bills are brought to the floor for votes and are discouraging their rank and file from signing the petition. Senate Democrats voted down a similar measure last week for the health care bill.

"The leaders use it as a tool to get votes or to keep amendments off a bill," said one top Senate Democratic aide.

But Baird warned of public backlash.

"Democrats know politically it's difficult to defend not doing this," he said. "The public gets this. They say we entrust you with the profound responsibility of making decisions that affect our lives, and we expect you to exercise due diligence in carrying out that responsibility."

Have they no shame....?

That is a rhetorical question:

1) They are politicians

2) They are Democrats.

So, the answer is, of course they have no shame when it means more consolidation of power in Washington D.C. The more power they can consolidate in D.C. the more people will depend on them to dole out gifts like "free" healthcare, "free" tax credits toward new cars, "free" {insert desire here}. That is what Democrats have been doing for 70+ years. Ever since the implementing the "Raw Deal" by FDR. They want the people sucking off the teat that the government sow. That is how Dems get elected.

And in the process they have destroyed the black family making this the fourth generation of blacks to grow up in families where the father was replaced with a government welfare check. Where kids learn to beg and ask for handouts rather than going out and working for a living.

Government run healthcare is game, set, match. It is the end of us even pretending to have freedom & liberty. This will make you beg the government for the basic freedom such as your right to life, your right to liberty and your right to pursue happiness. It will all be controlled by the government machine....

This is why they cannot have the American people, the citizens of this once great nation, reading the bills they write and maybe even imposing their own opinions on the GREAT AND MIGHTY, THE ALL POWERFUL AND OMINPOTENT, THE CONGRESS THAT IS SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT US! How dare them! How dare them!

I call on each of you to call your representatives, hell, call ALL the representatives and remind them they are they to do our bidding, not the other way around! Here is a list. Call now & call often.
