I read regs all the time and my interpretation is the correct one.
The Executive Order you are talking about does exactly the opposite of what you say it does. In addition, it revokes Executive Order 13233 that G.W. Bush signed into law at the beginning of his first term and kept presidential records secret for 12 years, which was conveniently long enough to keep the records from his father G.H. Bush’s presidency under wraps until the end of G. W’s first term.
It’s boilerplate, but changes the details. Read #37 and #42

His initials ALONE give him agway! :)
By this EO, they even prevented Pres. Bush and/or any former President from revealing any information they knew about him, his father, his eligibility, passports, etc., as well as any future President, who may come across pertinent information!
"governing the assertion of executive privilege by incumbent and *former Presidents*"
"g) A "substantial question of executive privilege" exists if NARA's disclosure of Presidential records might impair national security (including the conduct of foreign relations), law enforcement, or the deliberative processes of the executive branch."
"Sec. 2. Notice of Intent to Disclose Presidential Records. (a) When the Archivist provides notice to the incumbent and former Presidents of his intent to disclose Presidential records pursuant to section 1270.46 of the NARA regulations, the Archivist, using any guidelines provided by the incumbent and former Presidents, shall identify any specific materials, the disclosure of which he believes may raise a substantial question of executive privilege."
"However, nothing in this order is intended to affect the right of the incumbent or former Presidents to invoke executive privilege with respect to materials not identified by the Archivist. Copies of the notice for the incumbent President shall be delivered to the President (through the Counsel to the President) and the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel). The copy of the notice for the former President shall be delivered to the former President or his designated representative."
State’s right versus federal. Let the showdown begin.
He is below contempt.
His sheep are worse.

The stupidity in these threads keeps piling up, no matter how much you hose it out. This notion was debunked months ago. This E.O. deals with federal government materials, and has nothing to do with state records, or anyone’s personal records, over which POTUS has no authority.
Someone please tell me this is a joke... please.
“One of the areas that Obama has successfully covered up is the year as head of the Harvard Law Review. It’s a little unbelievable that Obama never wrote a single legal review as the head of the Law Review. That’s what they do, review laws. Someone knows what he produced.”
Harvard Law Review articles are unsigned. They are generally group efforts. The articles are legal commentary by law students. They don’t “review laws”.
Of course reviewing laws is pretty much the same thing as legal commentary, but you knew that.
So, you are telling me that as head of the Harvard law review Obama would not have produced a single article with his name on it?
Do the articles never have a single author? Just what duties and contributions did Obama make to the Harvard Law review as the head of that organization?
Did Obama pass the Bar? Lots of black lawyers dont.
Wow!!! A guy on a political forum I frequent posted a link to this site. I must say I’m surprised and saddened that everyone thinks this particular executive order is a new thing and mentions anything about Obama’s personal records.
Maybe we should compare the wording to this one from 2001 and see what’s different.
Did anybody ever see him at Hahvad? Has anybody ever found any old girlfriends from anywhere, anytime? Any old boyfriends? How about high school?
