The reasons for canceling this event are transparent.
Was this from the Onion, or Scrappleface?
Talk about fail!
Giving Obama an award for transparency would be like giving Bill Clinton an award for marital fidelity.
Transparency award LOL.
And still the cover up of practically every record ever associated with this communist continues.
"Unspecified changes" He's the most transparent! /sarc
Lets see now there's the Rio de Janeiro trip and another golf outing.
What, was Obama going to give himself a medal?
Perhaps these flaming idiots can ask Bozo for his birth certificate and all those school records before the presentation of this award. This award is as outstandingly idiotic as the Nobel Peace prize. The lefties are absolutely insane and with no shame.
They normal MO is is unbridled arrogance and limitless hubris
“The White House postponed an event scheduled for Wednesday afternoon where President Obama was supposed to receive an award for a commitment to transparency due to unspecified changes to the presidents schedule.
It will be rescheduled to an undisclosed time and location.
Obama's golf partner.
I sure hope that this asshat organization didn’t spend alot on Zer0’s trophy for transparency.
Maybe it was a make believe invisible award.
Transparency don’cha know
“In 2010 there were 544,360 requests filed at the 35 largest government agencies.”
Wondering why there are 35, or more largest government agencies. Are they really necessary?
