Presumably, new credit-card regulations constitute "emergency" legislation given that Obama is once again breaking his pledge to post legislation online five days before signing, in order to sign it Friday.

President Obama will quickly sign the credit card legislation that just passed through Congress at a White House ceremony on Friday, according to White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

One problem: this means the President will again break his campaign pledge to post legislation online for five days for the public to comb it over in the interest of transparency before he signs it into law.

This is the easy stuff, people.
