White House admits it contacted candidate about jobs. But what about open government and transparancy?

WASHINGTON – The White House faced fresh questions over back-room dealmaking after acknowledging that one of President Barack Obama's top advisers encouraged a Colorado Democrat to apply for an international development job instead of challenging the candidate whom the president favored in a Senate race.

The situation again called into question repeated promises by Obama to run an open government that is above secret political horse-trading. In appealing to voters this election year, Republicans charge that Obama's promise to change the ways of Washington has given way to the kind of politics he campaigned against.

Backroom deals in the Obama administration? Say it isn't so, BO!

  • they only want transparency when it's to their benefit. Otherwise, it's top secret.

  • Momof, not only do WE know every move, weapon, and action, but so does the Taliban and Al Queda. Any wonder we aren't winning?

    On the other things where transparency would actually be a good idea, this administration is as transparent as lead.

  • We have heard about two attempted buy-offs, wonder how many more there were and the number of Dems who took the bribe.

  • You know it's true. When they want to look good they do make sure you hear all about something then call it transparency. They just don't expect you to realize how much they are still hiding
