Where's the Transparency

Throughout the campaign, Obama promised a transparent government.

Where is that transparency now in light of the Blego corruption? Where is the full disclosure on the Obama's camp's involvement? Why so long to reveal all conversations, deals, etc. discussed by Obama's people.

It is a very important and honorable statement and objective. John McCain voiced a similar one yesterday.

I certainly can't disagree with it and think I should take it to heart.

In that vein, I will offer a solution.

President-elect Obama should immediately share any and all details regarding any communications his staff had with Gov. Blego regarding the vacant senate seat.

This approach will keep him true to his campaign promises and demonstrate true leadership.

Better?

I thought this had already pretty much been done, the confirming he had no involvement with it. I'm sure if a smoking gun is found it will be plastered on the news so I'll wait and see if that happens.

O M G !
Transparency in government, whether it be yours or mine, is nonexistant. I would like to see Mandatory Polygraph Testing in lieu of The traditional Presidential Debate.
And the winner is ??????????????????

I don't think it is an issue of whether Obama had direct involvement but to what degree, if any his chief of staff or other staff members had in it.

That is the question that remains unanswered.

Thou shalt not question The Obama! I've told you there's nothing to see here! I don't have to answer to you; I don't even have to listen to the rest of your question, peasant. I granted you a boon by giving you a chance to ask me a question...don't blow it by asking something that doesn't flatter me. Now drink the kool-aid and make me look good or I'll make sure you never get to ask another question and your career is toast!

A lot of us have considered Obama to be transparent from the start. The problem is getting other people to see it.

Just watched the video clip. Good grief, I guess questioning "the Obama" is a mortal sin. I'd say Obama was a bit testy. Didn't like being asked questions he didn't want to answer.

I don't understand why its been so difficult to come up with an answer to the question of Obama's and/or his staff's involvement with Blago?? You either did or did not. Makes you feel like they're trying to cover their butts before the truth comes out. Of course today it was announced that there was no inappropriate involvement.
