Now This Actually Is A Good Idea

Not the biggest Norquist fan but I agree completely with this

Closed-door negotiations to avert the fiscal cliff haven’t yielded much progress so far, so anti-tax activist Grover Norquist has a suggestion: Put them on TV.

Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform who’s become Democrats’ favorite bogeyman, said if President Barack Obama meets with congressional leaders in front of cameras the American people will be able to better judge who is being “reasonable” about compromise.

“It’s the president who is threatening to raise taxes on the middle class if he doesn’t stamp his feet and get his way,” Norquist said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “He should get into a room with C-Span cameras there and negotiate. Lets have it in front of C-Span cameras. And if the Republicans are being reasonable, we’ll see that. If they’re not, we’ll see that. Gotta have cameras in that room.”

In this era of The Most Transparent Administration Evuh this should be a no-brainer.

    That is a good idea! Just watching the Dhimmicrats break into a sweat at the thought would be worth the time.

    I’m not so sure, politicians tend to play to the camera and it brings out the worst.

    Bam promised to put the Obamacare deliberations on C-Span (said he’d have the bill up on the WH site for everyone to look at too).

    So, yeah, I’m not holding my breath until the current game of chicken shows up on the tube.

    Obama doesn’t have the stones to appear on TV unless it’s in front of a paid audience of sycophants.

    Can’t be a no-brainer; if it was, Obama would be on it big time….
