Obama confuses the concepts of tranparency and invisibility on a regular basis.
But, but didn't the President just win an award for transparency in government?
President Obama finally and quietly accepted his transparency award from the open government community this week in a closed, undisclosed meeting at the White House on Monday.
The secret presentation happened almost two weeks after the White House inexplicably postponed the ceremony, which was expected to be open to the press pool.
This time, Obama met quietly in the Oval Office with Gary Bass of OMB Watch, Tom Blanton of the National Security Archive, Danielle Brian of the Project on Government Oversight, Lucy Dalglish of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and Patrice McDermott of OpenTheGovernment.org, without disclosing the meeting on his public schedule or letting photographers or print reporters into the room.
Just another wonderful example of Obama’s promised TRANSPARENCY .....NOT!
Ah, the Transparency Administration strikes again.
Hoodat, You beat me to it.....LOL
No problem. Just withhold funding for any portion of the government that has not yet provided those records. I doubt that any productive American would notice.
Barack Insane Obama cannot let any real statistics rise to the open air & sunshine, can he???
Waste and fraud in federal programs.Can’t be say it ain’t so. /s
I’d say they should hire Price Waterhouse and let ‘em rip.
Bet that is what the Mittster would do....
