Looks like the “Annointed One” ain’t all that.
D’uh. We all knew that any way.
Well check out this lovely gem from PolitiFact.
Anyone wanna start a pool on how many will get broken within the first 100 days?
Here’s the promise:
To reduce bills rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them, Obama “will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.”
Here’s what happened:
But the first bill Obama signed into law as president — the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act — got no such vetting.
In fact, the Congressional Record shows that the law was passed in the Senate on Jan. 22, 2009, passed in the House on Jan. 27, and signed by the president on Jan. 29. So only two days passed between the bill’s final passage and the signing.
The legislation was not posted to the White House Web site for comment in any way that we could find.
I know, I know, I know…..no surprises.

(Hat tip to the beautiful & talented Michelle.)
There’s hope for the GOP yet.
Former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael Steele has been elected to the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee.
Steele is an unabashed, unapologetic conservative, the first since Haley Barbour in this humble scribe’s opinion. He will provide dynamic leadership as we strive to rebuild the party from the disasterous era of “compassionate conservatism” and Demoscum-lite-ness.
Congratulations, Mr. Steele. The Realm has your back, sir.
