Should We Do Our Business in the Light of Day?

“And those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account – to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day – because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.”

Lindsey looked up at me incredulously. “Did he really say we should do our business in the light of day?” She smiled broadly and began to laugh.
Taken out of context, I’m sure you can imagine what 3rd graders might have heard today when President Obama addressed the nation and the world using these very words. Apparently, he didn’t run the now infamous speech by his daughters, who would have rightly pointed out that no one should “do their business” in the light of day except for the family pet.
