It’s a little early to be breaking promises:
Transparency was a high priority and important speaking point for candidate Obama and his election committee. He argued that his administration would use the internet as a tool for the American people to monitor their government.
“When there’s a bill that ends up on my desk as president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it, so that you know what your government’s doing.”
Thus far, Obama has signed two dozen bills into law, but only TWO of the TWENTY-FOUR were given the allotted five-day waiting period promised during the campaign.
While most political analyst argue that this practice would have little effect on changing legislation because bills cannot be changed once they are passed through Congress, it still shows a lack of the Obama Administration’s ability to follow through on simple campaign promises.
Candidate Obama promised many more complicated and extensive changes such as universal healthcare, economic growth, and better international relations. If he is unable to follow through on the little things, what should the country expect from his more ostentatious campaign promises?
