Thoughts on Transparency

Ok, so by now we all realize Obama isn't going to make good on his big promises of bringing transparency to Washington.
But you know who IS bringing transparency to DC? The GOP.
I've gotten so many clips of YouTube videos, emails, etc from various Republican members of Congress explaining their opposition to the 1,000 page bill, I think Obama is going to be sorry they ever brought the subject up in the first place.
They're all on the airwaves, they're all on Twitter and they're all on message. Just look at what's happening in the stimulus debate. More information and transparency works in their favor and against the Democrats.
No, the GOP probably won't win this fight, but their battle armor is getting stronger.
