We are all soooooo shocked
On his first full day in office, President Barack Obama ordered federal officials to usher in a new era of open government and act promptly to make information public.
As Obama nears the end of his term, his administration hasnt met those goals, failing to follow the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act, according to an analysis of open-government requests filed by Bloomberg News.
Nineteen of 20 cabinet-level agencies disobeyed the law requiring the disclosure of public information: The cost of travel by top officials. In all, just eight of the 57 federal agencies met Bloombergs request for those documents within the 20-day window required by the Act.
When it comes to implementation of Obamas wonderful transparency policy goals, especially FOIA policy in particular, there has been far more talk the talk rather than walk the walk, said Daniel Metcalfe, director of the Department of Justices office monitoring the governments compliance with FOIA requests from 1981 to 2007.
Remember all the wailing from the left over Bush's super-duper secret surveillance tactics in the United States. Are we hearing any now when it's being reported that real-time monitoring of electronic communication inside our borders has climbed 60%....that's SIX ZERO. This far surpassed the Bush era.
But no crying. No wailing. No screams of injustice.

Obama started FISA wiretaps up again his first week in office, and all the people screaming Impeach Bush over that were never told by MSM that it was back on.
Well, golldongit! Why won't he open up all of his own records?
Open government my @$$!
What he means is that all of OUR records should be made public.
I just can't take anybody seriously that doesn't know the difference between the words "then" and "THAN."
Beat me to that observation.
Where is the LameStreamMedia, DailyKos, HuffPost, CodePink and rhe entire “anti-war” movement that skewerd GWBush over this sort of thing for eight years?
They are absent, by choice, now that THEIR man is in office.
What should that tell everyone about their eight years of blasting GWBush on this topic?
It was never about anyone’s “rights”, it was 100% politics, and that’s all it was.
Any Marxist can do anything in office and he’s never a tyrant, never a violator of anyone’s “rights” as far as the LameStreamMedia, DailyKos, HuffPost, CodePink and the entire political class of Lefists are concerned, as long as the person in power is one of them;
proving they do not actually believe in the “rights” they often proclaim to be defending. They believe in their ideology and in power, and that’s all they believe in.
Lately I find myself humming John Lennon’s Imagine, except in my mind I have many different things that I imagine there are “no” of such as Obama, islam, liberals, leftists, communists, socialists, etc. There are some many -isms and -ists this world could do without.
