Obama breaks first of many promises

While on the campaign trail, Obama stated that "Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them," Obama's campaign Web site states, "As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days." So what does the President do? He rushes to sign a non-emergency Bill - the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Only two days passed between the bill's final passage and the signing. One can only believe that the President is a media hound and will sniff out any opportunity he can find to get some free press.
