Obama's Five Day Rule: More Hype



And, when there’s a bill that ends up on my desk as president, you the public will have five days to look on-line and find out what’s in it before I sign it so that you know what your government’s doing.


The bill was passed on Friday but the conference report on the bill was posted on-line on Thursday.

The president as reported, will sign the bill on Tuesday. I guess in Obama's world, five days started ticking off Thursday.

I have to ask two things, what day did the bill end up on his desk? And what difference does it make if I get to look at it on-line. If I have a question or a problem with it on the fifth day and lodge my complaint on the fifth day Alaska time, will this matter to the president on Tuesday?

No.

Moreover, if we see money going to build a train that goes from Nevada to Los Angeles, and people lodge a complaint against it, will that stop Nevada from getting the money?

It's a rhetorical question and Obama's truth in transparency is nothing more than hype.

The president has instructed people to go to recovery.gov to track funds.

If I hear that idiotic phrase, “save or create X million jobs” once more, I think I’ll puke. It means nothing, and anyone who uses it should be forced to actually explain himself. At least get their concrete projections on record. They must have projections, in order to know what a “saved job” even is - though having a projection only implies that one is willing to take a guess and stick to it, nothing more. But at least nail them down on what they think the future would have looked like without that turd they call ‘legislation’. If you don’t nail them down, they just jump around from day-to-day, detached from any, and all, history.
