City of Brass open government

Change came to the virtual White House as well as the physical one yesterday – has re-launched in true Obama fashion by featuring a blog as its centerpiece and promises to publish legislation and executive orders online for the public to review. I have some commentary on the role of the website as a civic instrument over at metaBLOG and defend it from critiques that it isn’t “open” enough (by not allowing comments, etc).

Definitely the appropriate given Blog is very important for us because it is a very helpful source of communication between themselves and public as well as the Business also we can share our own feelings. Barak Obama is a talented President he has brilliant idea about politics i think he will get success very soon. Democratic government are looking for a change in America they are doing quite good job. If i talk about the website then it is also giving a great contribution for communicating. I hope Obama will take care of all these problems in U.S.A. I think the American as well as black American has lots of expectations from Osama’s government.
