From the Department of Glaringly Obvious Headlines

Joe Biden update: he meets today on transparency today. But the meeting is closed.

"Here is the vice president's official schedule for today. Boldface was added in the interests of emphasis. Note especially that the vice president's meeting with the chairman of the Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board is closed, meaning non-transparent."

Naturally. Who would expect a non-classified meeting between public officials to be open to the public? George Orwell actually underestimated the ability of these clowns to make such announcements with a straight face.

Yet another broken promise from those who vowed to implement "change". It's hoped that the millions of duped supporters who voted for these people are taking notice.

UPDATE: Here's a bonus headline on the same subject:

PROMISES, PROMISES: Many Obama pledges unkept

You don't say?

"Promises that have proven difficult include pledges not to raise taxes, to curb earmarks and to shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba by the end of his first year."

Those sorts of pledges wouldn't be difficult to keep at all, if the President had ever seriously meant to follow through on them in the first place. Which we doubt. Especially the ones about taxes and earmarks.
