Skip to comments.HENTOFF: Obama shrugs off concerns

During his presidential campaign, a solemn pledge by Barack Obama that almost made me vote for him (but I'm pro-life, and he's a pro-choice extremist) was that his administration would be the most open and transparent in our history, in contrast to the deeply, darkly secret George W. Bush-Dick Cheney administration. But, as with some of his other broken promises to restore the Constitution, I increasingly have less hope for a reason to believe in the Obama presidency.

Lovely little troglodyte, is he not?
Get a clue Nat
Dear Nat... Obambi never released his birth certificate, college scores, medical reports or explain his associations with Bill Ahyers and Jeremiah Wright. These things didn't set off alarm bells in your head?
Whenever I hear a politician claim that they are going to have the most "ethical and transparent" administration in history, I begin to worry.
Didn't Bill Clinton say the very same thing?
BTW... How's that Vince Foster thing working out for you?
Nat’s come a long way. Time was, he was tantamount to a Stalinist.
He’s still got a long way to go, and that’s just to get away from stuoid.
For a glaring example, with regard to the pervasive secrecy of his predecessors, President Obama has stunningly not only continued to invoke state secrets to order judges to close down lawsuits,what’s that thing that keeps magging obama oh yea the constitution.
Nat’s brain is as bankrupt as the Village Voice.
I’ve been avoiding Nat and pecker gnats like him for decades.
No, that inevitably leads to abandoning Stalinism.
