Obama Punts On Transparency Again
There is literally not a week gone by since Barrack Hussein Obama invaded the White House that he has not broken a campaign promise to the American people. Now he is at it again with the unions loosening the transparency and reporting regulations.
Obviously as far as Obama is concerned “transparency” is one of those things that only enemies should be forced to observe. If you are an Obama friend, no transparency is required.
It is interesting to note the language that Democrats used to excuse their newest roll back of transparency requirements, too (my bold).
“The [Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act’s] various reporting provisions are designed to empower labor organizations, their members, and the public by providing certain information about the finances of labor organizations and union officers and employees. A fair and transparent government regulatory regime must consider and balance the interests of labor organizations, their members, and the public, including the benefits served by disclosure, the burden placed on reporting entities, and preserving the independence of unions and their officials from unnecessary government regulation.”

So how does allowing unions to misuse, abuse, and hide expenditures from their own membership, the public and the government by skipping transparency requirements help anyone but the union chiefs that want to hide what they are doing from the prying eyes of reformers?
Obama has got to be the biggest union whore to every exist, does he where kneepads? He spends so much time pandering and paying back these job killing unions that you have to wonder when he has time to get anything else done.
I guess if you look at the rising unemployment numbers and pathetic GDP growth he is doing nothing else. This president is either completely amoral or the one of the dumbest humans ever elected. Its scary to think which is worse. Without his tele-prompter he is constantly frustrating his handlers and blathering out what he really thinks. He has completely made a mockery of his most open transparent government ever. He cuts Chicago style back room deals and just plain lies about it to the American public. His administration will gone down in history as one of the most corrupt, incompetent and least “Transparent” in the history of our republic. In past times you could count on some in the media to call them on it, unfortunately the media is so corrupt and one sided the historians will have to write the story.
