Yet Another Obama Sycophant Gets A Post-Election Clue

Dana Milbank just realized in the last 5 minutes that when Obama said that he was going to have the most transparent administration in history, he meant that they were so incompetent that you could see right through them…or maybe he was just talking about the thinness of his own resume…

Amazing how they all are discovering this AFTER the election, isn’t it?

“My administration,” President Obama wrote on his first day in office, “is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”

Those were strong and hopeful words. Four years later, it is becoming more and more clear that they were just words.

On Monday afternoon, open-government advocates assembled in a congressional hearing room to ponder what had become of the Obama administration’s lofty vows of transparency.

To which I find I must reply somewhat indelicately: “You liberal asshats, I can tell you what happened to his ‘lofty vows of transparency’ - he lied.”

It is simple as that.

What a bunch of morons the Obamabots are. The comedy continues:

Now the administration is maintaining silence as lawmakers prepare to pass one of the gravest threats to government transparency in years. A bill passed by the Senate intelligence committee would ban anybody but the top officials and public-relations staff at intelligence agencies from speaking to the media. The proposal, intended to crack down on classified leaks, would significantly set back freedom of the press, thwart whistle-blowers and squelch the airing of dissenting views on intelligence issues. This is part of a broader effort to make it a crime for national security officials to talk to reporters.

The Obama administration has, to its credit, made progress in a few areas: releasing more of the White House visitor logs, disseminating more information about nuclear weapons, disclosing more about intelligence spending, and declassifying more historical records.

But these don’t amount to the “unprecedented level of openness” Obama promised. The few advances that have been made are mostly administrative changes that will end with the Obama administration. “We haven’t seen that many, if any, legislative initiatives from the White House,” Weismann lamented at Monday’s gathering of the open-government advocates.

Consider the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act, a bill with bipartisan support that would make it easier to track government spending by requiring agencies to report expenditures in a uniform way online. The legislation is so uncontroversial that it passed the House on a voice vote. But the Obama administration raised objections — and the transparency law has yet to see the light of day.

You elected the progenitor of Leviathan – live with it.

  1. I really wish the Reps. had the majority in the Senate. This whole blame game would be put where it needs to be and not with Congress. Then again, I suppose some other entity would be his scapegoat.

  2. It seems obvious that they are not teaching critical thinking in schools anymore. If they were, perhaps some of these young folks would be able to discern Obama’s words from his actions. Didn’t anyone ever tell them to look at what a person actually does and not just lap up their words like pablum? We need more cynics in the younger generation and all we have are sheep.
