My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government. – WhiteHouse.gov
What’s going on with the most transparent Administration ever in the history of the world?
While at the FEC Lois Lerner practiced extortion? The DOJ is spying on journalists doing their job? The IRS is harassing conservative Republicans? Homeland Security is “monitoring” peaceful Tea Party protests?
It almost sounds like your government is trying to intimidate you into not doing things they don’t want you to do,
and make you do things they do want you to.
I don’t know about your olfactory gland, butt mine is picking up the wiff of…dare I say it?…tyranny.
It smells like the full force of the Federal Government bringing it’s heavy steel-toed boot to the throat of the little people. What! Wait a minute! Isn’t that the purview of…the jack-booted right wing?
Yikes! We’ve got a new federal police force? At Homeland Security? Is that in the Constitution? Well at least now we know what they’re doing with all those bullets they’ve sucked off the market and out of your cold, dead hands.
Butt none of that is really “news”. Let’s turn our attention now to where your government wants it to be: on Lady M’s amazing charms and her magical organic Garden of Good and Evil.
That’s right boys and girls! It’s already time for our first official “summer” garden harvest! [Note: in Washington D.C. “summer” – like everything else - arrives when we say so, or when it’s convenient for our agenda.] So - bring on the little children and the smelly fruits of our labor:
Meanwhile, Lady M took her considerable charms to Boston yesterday to raise $600,000 at a fundraiser for Rep. Ed Markey - who never met a tax increase he didn’t like. For $37,600 a pop, supporters got a gourmet lunch and the opportunity to hear words of wisdom from both Senate candidate Markey:
“The first lady is a symbol of our future,” Markey told reporters outside the fundraiser at the Taj Boston. “She inspires millions of Americans, millions of people around the world, on a daily basis.”
And Lady M herself:
Inside the hotel, Obama told the crowd, “if you want to have my husband’s back, you need to support” Markey, according to a tweet from Carl Nilsson, Markey’s field director.
As always, fans like Andrea McLeod, a retired business consultant, eagerly stood in line for hours for the opportunity to shell out her money to see Lady M:
“Anybody who grows vegetables in the White House garden has my vote,” she said.
Thanks Andrea, butt Lady M isn’t running for anything just yet. Although if that’s how you feel, I can introduce you to a few of your candidates for the U.S. Senate: Carlos, Diego and Manuel.
