  •  "when appropriate" (0+ / 0-)

    I had to go back and find something that I was reading a couple of months ago.  In retrospect, it seems amusing:

    The president-elect's Web site promises he will reverse Executive Order 13233 nullifying the timely, lawful release of presidential records. John Podesta, who heads the transition team, acknowledged that, as president, Obama will, "when appropriate," reverse that order. Some will remember John F. Kennedy's famous "stroke of the pen" promise for a federal fair housing ordinance in 1960--unfortunately, Kennedy's pen paralysis resulted in an 18-month delay.
