    Default The Most Transparent Administration Ever, except for...

    Well, not often do you have nearly every major media outlet teamed up against the administration, but that's what is happening.

    Seriously, what in the world could possibly be hiding on the list. Probably won't be released until after November, whatever it is.

    My guess is 300 trips by Jamie Dimon and daily visits by Reverend Wright

    Stop reading Breitbart. You're smarter than that. On the list are a thousand people who have probably met, talked to or heard of socialists or radicals that would be use against him, I'm sure.

    It's part of a news collector thing. And if no one else is going to report it prominently, is it really that bad. It's not like some hair brained whack job idea to want to see the visitor list.

    Is that somehow more credible now that it has a different banner at the top of the page.

    Slightly, yes. Still a pretty useless and obviously explainable complaint. My comment about you using Breitbart was more of a piece of advice.

    Just because information is new to you does not mean it is new to everyone. This is not new. The Washington Post (yes, I know, liberal and Godless) ran a story in June of 2009 criticizing the Obama administration (less than six months into his term) for continuing the Bush era policies of not releasing visitor logs beginning in 2006.
    Politics is dirty, nasty business, run by lawyers and campaign managers, consultants and advisers. All candidates run on an assumption that they will change things once they get into office. Once there, they get briefed up on the full weight of the office pretty quickly, and when all those lawyers and campaign managers, consultants and advisers get their briefings, they get a little tight, and all of a sudden, freedom of information isn't such a good idea.

    A perfect example on how things change once in office - President Obama has done more to target and strike Al Qaeda and other terrorist targets in three years than President Bush did in seven. However, the right won't give him credit because they don't like him, and the left won't give him credit because they (normally) don't like using the military. President Obama probably never envisioned doing that, but once he assumed the office, he realized th eopportunity was there, and he acted.

    Further, if President Bush or President Reagan had ordered the hit on Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, the right would have been touting the courage it took to do that and the left would have been screaming that it was a huge overstep of presidential power. But because President Obama ordered the hit, both sides have been (mostly) silenced.

    Candidates promise what they can, presidents do what they must. It's a damned hard job, and not a single one of our 44 have ever taken the office hoping to do our country harm. Anybody who thinks or says otherwise is a damned fool.
