Skip to comments.Obama stonewalls release of White House visitor logs

"Only the Obama administration could offer to release pre-scrubbed White House visitor logs while withholding tens of thousands of other records and call it transparency. President Obama has violated his campaign promises of openness and transparency. We hope the court will do what it has done on previous occasions and uphold FOIA law."
The Obama Justice Department advanced the erroneous claim in an April 21, 2010, court filing that Secret Service logs of White House visitors are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), according to a report released Wednesday by legal watchdog group Judicial Watch.

He doesn’t want the Peasants seeing all his Marxist buddies that have visited him........Would be interesting to see if Soros has been there.(In that case I would suggest Sarah Palin fumegate the WH)
I wish Obama the worst.
Whatever the legalities. There is no legitimate reason for him to conceal the list of white house visitors. The only possible reason is to conceal plans being concocted to the advantage of the visitor or the presidents political agenda.
He is corrupt.
She needs to start right NOW!
To use Chicagoland vernacular...he is "dirty".
Remember Bill Clinton, on the night of his election, announcing his administration would be the most ethical in history? Liberals always telegraph their flaws by what they promise. Obama was going to be transparent, free of special interests and honest. That’s the functional equivalent of a promise to be secretive, devoted to special interests, and corrupt. He’s kept his promises; you just have to understand Liberalspeak.
The Cloack of Transparency
Oops, The Cloak of Transparency
Omnipotent and eternal God, the everlasting Salvation of those who believe, hear us on behalf of Thy mentally sick creation, Barack Hussein Obama, for whom we beg the aid of Thy pitying mercy, that, with his mental health restored, he may give thanks to Thee in Thy Church and convert to Catholic Christianity. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
I suppose Bill Ayers & Bernadette Dohrn’s names on the guest register would prove embarrassing to the Kenyan.
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Transparency? What a lying national disgrace.
I found it very odd that Michael Signator visited.
The only thing transparent in this administration is the TelePrompter.
The Obama White House admits in the new court filing that it is taking records from the Secret Service in order to ensure that they are not disclosed under FOIA. The Obama administration speculates that there would be dire national security consequences if certain White House visitors are disclosed. The Obama White House wants to be able to withhold visitor logs until as long as 12 years after President Obama leaves office.
Obama lawyers want more secrecy at White House
A new government brief filed in a court dispute over the records argues, instead, that people with questions about who visits the White House should go to the White House website and ask for the information, and if the president agrees, it could be released.
Now its official. The Obama White House has made the bogus claim in court that the Secret Services logs of White House visitors are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and therefore may be kept secret from the American people. In other words, the Obama administration believes you have no right to know under law who visits the White House or under what circumstances.
Enemies within? Ya think?
He has nothing to hide, right?
