Mortgaging the Future

This comes from Obama's Inauguration speech:
And those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account — to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day — because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.
I only have one conclusion watching this stimulus debate. Barack Obama lied. There is no wise spending in this stimulus. There is no reformation of bad habits. There is no business done in the light of day. Not one statement from that part of Obama's inauguration is true.

A few things from Obama's rhetoric gave me hope that he would do good things as president. Instead, he says one thing, and does the exact opposite. Whatever the failings of George W. Bush, at least he was honest. He did all he could to fulfill his campaign promises.

I can't wait to see how many other statements from the Inauguration become void. (That is tongue in cheek. There were good things in the speech, but I am starting to expect that NONE of them will be fulfilled.)
