Obama Launches Recovery.Gov In His First Weekly Address As President

President Obama has a major hard-on for accountability. If you go to newly launched Recovery.Gov you get the following under construction message:
Check back after the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to see how and where your tax dollars are spent.

It's not much to look at yet but I've been anticipating Recovery.Gov ever since I heard him mention the concept on the campaign trail. To see it launched so quickly sends a very strong message. So far President Obama is putting his money where mouth is and I'm loving it. You can be cynical about it and say that some of the changes he proposed can take years before they impact us but it looks to me like he's ticking all the easier things (relatively speaking) off his to-do list as soon as bureaucratically possible.
