We were promised better, we deserve better

Recently, Obama announced his support of hiding evidence of torture from the American people. This is a dangerous, downright scary change in tone from Obama's promises of just six months ago regarding transparency and openness in all aspects of American government. This is a very bad, very unnerving move. If we can't change the most egregious parts of the Bush administration -- the lies, the hiding behind national security, the waving of the patriotism in any debate -- then how do we expect to change the relatively simple problems like the economy? If our elected officials want to hide the truth from us, is anything they say trustworthy? Where is the America I was promised? Where is the hope? Where is the change? Stop making excuses and make things better.

Cue a bunch of cynics wincing and saying something to the effect of "I hate it when I'm right."

That's pretty lame.

...but the economy isn't by any means a simple problem.
