Yeah, seems that when Obama speaks of 'bipartisan' and 'open',

he means "Do what I want and it's bipartisan" and " 'Open' means you'll find out about it eventually."
PHOENIX – Governor Jan Brewer said she was stunned and angered to learn during an Ecuadorean television interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the Obama Administration had decided to sue Arizona over its recently passed anti-illegal immigration law, SB1070. Video of the interview can be seen at Governor Brewer’s Arizona Border Security Information website:

Secretary Clinton announced during the interview on June 8th that President Obama has directed the U.S. Justice Department to “bring a lawsuit against the Arizona law.”

“This is no way to treat the people of Arizona,” said Governor Brewer. “To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the Secretary of State is just outrageous. If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation.”

This after her meeting a couple of weeks ago where
Brewer said Obama agreed to send staffers to Arizona “in a couple of weeks” to discuss using more federal resources to tighten the border, including allocating 1,200 National Guard troops and $500 million more in funds for border protection and law enforcement.

“He assured us that the majority of those resources would be coming to Arizona,” Brewer said.

She added, “I am encouraged there is going to be much better dialogue between the federal government and the state of Arizona. I hope that that’s not wishful thinking; I hope that that’s positive thinking.”

Apparently when Obama says "I'll send staffers to discuss matters" he means "I'll talk to lawyers about suing you."

ANYBODY who trusts ANYTHING Obama says anymore is either a fool or foolishly optimistic.
