I listened to President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday and have grown tired of what I perceive as spin, half-truths and, possibly, outright lies. I also recall many candidates claiming they would ensure transparency in government if they were elected. What happened to that transparency?
I would love to see President Obama, Speaker Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the two minority leaders, Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi, sit down for a televised negotiation session. I'm sure one of the cable news stations would be willing to broadcast it no matter how long it would have to last to get matters resolved. Now, that's what I would call transparency.
