Back room deals: Things you won’t see on the new Obama iPhone app?

» by russ in: Technology

So the President Obama has a new app that promises:

Today, we’re excited to announce the new White House App available for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. The White House App delivers dynamic content from to the palm of your hand.

Now anyone with this app can watch the President’s public events at the White House, frequent web chats with Administration officials, and other events like key speeches and press briefings in real time.

In fact, the President’s State of the Union speech next week is a great example. In addition to the millions of Americans watching through TV and websites like, iPhone users on the go will be able to tune in through their phones.

The White House App also lets users stay up to date with the White House Blog and the latest from the Briefing Room. Browse behind-the-scenes photos and watch on-demand videos. The app provides instant access to full videos from recent speeches, press briefings, and special events.

What you won’t see are the back room deals between Democrats, Big Labor and Obama’s cronies. What you won’t see is true transparency. He’s big on talking about transparency but when it comes to actually doing something about it he just votes present.

By the way how much taxpayer money and IT resources where wasted on this obvious propaganda? If Bush did this the liberals around the US would be coming unglued.
