What else is new with the “openness and transparency” that Obama promised during his campaign. The words from all politicians in Washington and around the country are filled with hollow words, none having any meaning or substance behind those words. The governor in SC should resign….not just from his leadership position with the national governor’s organization, but as governor of South Carolina. What a fool! Why are any Republicans backing this guy….some of which castigated Bill Clinton during his troubled days in office. Quit your office, you idiot!! You left your state without letting anyone know where you went to meet some bimbette in a foreign country. If Republicans are to be believed they have to “walk the walk and talk the talk” - not some of the phony rhetoric we’re hearing these day.
The House of Representatives has become the house of ill repute…..there are few, if any elected officials in that organization that truly represent the people. NewsMax.com posted the following story referencing Acorn and Rep. Conyers (D - Mich.) and the lack of transparency and openness (the words are only a great campaign slogan) in investigating Acorn and its affiliates. The arrogance is stunning.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. has backed off his plan to investigate purported wrongdoing by the liberal activist group ACORN, saying “powers that be” put the kibosh on the idea.
Mr. Conyers, Michigan Democrat, earlier bucked his party leaders by calling for hearings on accusations the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) has committed crimes ranging from voter fraud to a mob-style “protection” racket.
“The powers that be decided against it,” Mr. Conyers told The Washington Times as he left the House chambers Wednesday.
Okay, lets see….the “powers that be….” - who could that be: Pelosi? Obama? Or, is it Conyers himself? Read on…..
The chairman declined to elaborate, shrugging off questions about who told him how to run his committee and give the Democrat-allied group a pass.
Conyers spokesman Jonathan Godfrey said late Thursday, several hours after the first request for comment, that the chairman had been referring to himself as “the powers that be.”
Shrugging off questions is the “arrogance” part referred to earlier. Never mind doing what’s right for the tax payers of this country…..do only what increases power for your party, the people be damned.
