So Much For Government Transparency

You all remember how our new President promised to operate totally in the open, complete transparency? Well, said promise didn’t last long. President Obama signed an executive order granting Federal funding to abortion clinics both domestically and in foreign countries.

Late on Friday afternoon, when nobody would notice.

Oh, and did I mention that he also banned anyone from taking pictures of the signing?

Unsurprisingly, the only word from the MSM on this has been to decry the justifiable outrage from conservatives. I especially love ABC’s Dan Harris’ take: “Despite his desire to reach out to people who disagree with him, the new President may find that on some issues, it may be impossible to find common ground.”

“Common ground.” On abortion? You’re freakin’ kidding me, right? There is no common ground on abortion: you can either be for it or against it.

Oh, and by the way, if Obama wanted to “reach out to people who disagree with him,” he should have at least signed the order when people were watching and permitted photographers. A better idea would be to try and compromise on the issues, instead of working from under the table with Executive Orders.
