New White House Press Secretary: Of Course Obama is The Most Transparent President in History
Townhall.com ^ | July 14, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

When President Obama ran for office way back in 2008, he infamously promised to have the "most transparent administration in history." Fast forward to 2014 and the opposite has happened. Not only does the administration heavily control the narrative of information going out to the press, the White House does everything possible to keep reporters from getting their hands on important information. Not to mention, the Department of Justice has heavily monitored reporters through phone and email monitoring.

Last week thirty eight journalism groups, including the Society for Professional Journalists, called on President Obama directly to "stop practices in federal agencies that prevent important information from getting to the public."

Regardless, newly minted White House spokesman Josh Earnest is still arguing the Obama administration has lived up to its promise of transparency.

President Obama is “absolutely” the most transparent president in history, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Sunday after the White House received a letter from signed by a dozen top journalists’ groups complaining about the administration’s policies toward the media.

“There are a number of steps that we've taken to give people greater insight into what's happening at the White House,” Earnest said in an interview with CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”


The only transparent thing about the White House at this point are its bogus statements, which we can all see right through.

Remember, the successor is always willing to do something the predecessor wasn’t.

If it isn’t completely obvious to you that this Muzzie is out to destroy this nation by every means possible, you are simply not paying attention.

For a socialist It must be a great job lying to the American people everyday, covering for the most deceptive president in history while he destroys the greatest capitalist nation to have ever graced the face of this earth. He must go to bed with a smile on his face every night. He probably prefers it to the gay sex with his partner of the day.

Josh Earnest lies so effortlessly. It is an amazing thing to behold. At least with Carney or Gibbs, you could see a mild level of unease or discomfort in them when the lies began to flow. But with Earnest, it comes as comfortably and easily to him as breathing does to the rest of us.

Of course he’s the most transparent president in history; anybody with even 20:200 vision can see right through this guy.

Barack sure has a top-notch crew of paid liars!!

White House, State, Justice, DHS, they all lie so well.

It takes a person will zero morals and ethics to take such a job when they know we know they're lying, which make them all despicable fools.

A real journalist would have immediately hammered him on everything the Administration has been hiding and foot-dragging on, not the least of which is the bogus “executive privilege” claim for Holder regarding Fast & Furious.
