Obamanation – America is in crisis. The nation is at war. The economy is badly weakened. Health care is too costly. American schools fail too many and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.
As if that were not grim enough – there is a sapping of confidence across our land – a nagging fear that America’s decline is inevitable and that the next generation must lower its sights.
Barack O promised Bold and Swift action to revive the economy: building roads and bridges , electric grids and digital lines. “ We will wield technologies wonders to raise health cares quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. ”
From our vantage point yesterday you couldn’t help but be inspired by the Sight of Americans as far as the eye could see. They were there because they Believe this is a moment of Great Change in America. A time for reinvigorating our Democracy and Remaking our Country.
They’ve entrusted all of us with a great responsibility. And so today I’d like to talk with you about our responsibility to keep that Trust.
Public service is simply and absolutely about advancing the interests of Americans – committed to building a more responsible , more accountable government – making sure that we’re spending precious tax dollars wisely and cutting costs wherever possible.
The American people deserve more than simply an assurance that those who are coming to Washington will serve their interests. They also deserve to know that there are rules on the books to keep it that way. They deserve a government that is truly OF , BY & FOR the PEOPLE.
The way to make government responsible is to hold it accountable -to make it transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made , how they’re being made , and whether their interests are being well served.
Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and the rule of Law will be the Touchstones of this Presidency.
The way to solve the problems of our time , as one nation , is by involving the American people in shaping the policies that affect their lives.
mark the beginning of a new era of openness in our country. And I will, I hope, do something to make government trustworthy in the eyes of the American people in the days and weeks, months and years to come. That’s a pretty good place to start.
Thank you very much. – Baracko
