    What, he can't find them in his "line by line" review of spending bills? That explains why he didn't veto them.

    Just like they posted all their healthcare pork, back room deals, and bribes online?

    Sounds like more empty pandering rhetoric from an administration who preaches the "do as I say not as I do" mantra.

    Easiest way to gain public trust is to quit lying to the public, Congressional Democrats openly debating with Republicans instead of meeting behind closed doors with only Democrats, and quit claiming economic progress when the deficit has skyrocketed and over 4 million people have lost their jobs.

    Is that really going to gain "public trust"???

    C'mon . . . those of us who voted for Barack Obama find our "trust" severely tested. Why can't just ONE god**** politician say what they mean an do what they say? WHY???? WHY????

    It's all about the almightly dollar, that's WHY!!

    I've never more sorry for voting for Obama than I am today.
