If Your Car Glass Had ‘Obama Transparency,’ You’d Crash And Die

March 5, 2010

From Flopping Aces:

Picture of the Day: Transparency

On Obama’s first day in office he signed a memorandum touting the virtues of the government transparency and compliance with the Freedom of Information Act.

Unfortunately, like so many other things where Obama is involved, his words regarding transparency were…just words.

The Chamber Post, an Internet blog site, sent in a FOIA request regarding global warming records.

This is what they received in response:


And the Government wonders why The People don’t trust them.

I mean, this isn’t some super-secret James-Bond-Eyes-Only CIA report; this is the result of a request for some freaking global warming records.

Of course, global warming is now such a documented fraud, and Obama is still so determined to impose global warming legislation anyway, that you can kind of understand why they treat global warming facts the way they’d treat the location of the cave bin Laden is hiding in.

This is pretty good, but of course it doesn’t even come close to the “workshop on government openness is closed to the public” that we’ve seen.  Or the Joe Biden Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board meetings that were closed to the press.  But of course, the only thing that could even POSSIBLY trump such classics of Obama obfuscation might be when he invoked EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE regarding a SOCIAL SECRETARY ARRANGING A PARTY.

Obama’s biggest problem with transparency is that scientists have yet to figure out how to make pure bullshit transparent.
