Commentary of the Day

Richard, on Jennifer Rubin:

Transparency hasn’t been a strong suit of the Obama team, so I’m skeptical when I hear him talk about transparency of the stimulus package. And no earmarks? Yea, right. Congress will call his bluff on this one. They will load it with pet projects that they will claim are “shovel ready”, and dare him to veto the entire package. Earmarks are to Congress what water is to fish.
