When your being bought off by foreigners and criminals the last thing you want is transparency. And they cry about Obama hiding info.
How ironic... considering that Obama is fundraising over-seas... which is ILLEGAL!
And how about all of the transparency Obama promised? We STILL haven't seen a single recond from this man's past. Hypocrite much, or only in the forums??? Now THAT is irony!!!
When is Willard going to release previous tax returns? I suppose you still don't believe President Obama was born in Hawaii Also, Romney will be fundraising on his trip to Israel.edit on 17-7-2012 by KireDj because: Something to add

That means something completely different to "not a single Republican vote"... it means they came within one vote of doing it as the supreme court advised.
The ability to follow the money has never been this important since the bagman days of the Watergate scandal. But when the Democratic Senate majority made a fresh attempt to enact a disclosure bill on Monday, the measure was immediately filibustered to death by Republicans, like other versions.
Still, the vote was a chance for the public to see who stands for and against such basic transparency in political spending. The answer: not one Republican showed the courage to break ranks and speak up for disclosure.
That doesn't say anything about voting. It says they didn't have the courage to "break ranks and speak up"... that is an entirely different thing. Find me the actual vote report from the house and we can look at the actual numbers instead of relying on deceptive word play.
The answer: not one Republican showed the courage to break ranks and speak up for disclosure.
And the graph you posted is about a completely different vote.
Not a SINGLE Republican votes for transparency
Two years ago, Congress came within a single Republican vote ...

Hypocrisy at it's finest folks. This is why I'll never become a Republican.
Well that's not quite true. I actually I made the same mistake, I confused the recent vote with the vote from 2 years ago. As I mentioned above, there was a recent vote which took place, and none of the republicans voted yes. So the title is true... however you are right, neither party are champions of transparency, as the facts clearly show (like my graph on the first page). They only pretend to like transparency when it suites their agenda.
