RNC statement on Obama's pro-union executive order
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele today released the following statement concerning the executive order quietly signed by President Barack Obama on Friday ordering the use of union labor for federal construction projects:
“President Obama’s executive order will drive up the cost of government at a time when we should be doing everything possible to save taxpayer dollars. Federal contracts should go to the businesses that can offer taxpayers the best value – not just the unions who supported the Democrats’ campaigns last year. Quietly signing executive orders to payback campaign backers undermines Obama promise to change Washington. It is a disappointment for Americans hoping for more transparency and less politics as usual in Washington.”

I guess that Rush fiasco was a smokescreen after all. Color me not surprised. I think they should name a Crayon 'Not Surprised'. I don't know what color it would be, but definitely color me that shade.
Personally, I am amazed that he can sign anything privately and without a teleprompter. Where was the press conference?
