President Obama on Thursday hailed his administration for its transparency.
This is the most transparent administration in history, Obama said during a Google Plus Fireside Hangout.
I can document that this is the case, he continued. Every visitor that comes into the White House is now part of the public record. Every law we pass and every rule we implement we put online for everyone to see.
The president said this holds true even on the issue of Benghazi, a controversy which he said was driven by campaign year politics and one that Congressional Republicans were clinging to even though theyve run out of questions.
Benghazi is not a good example, Obama said. Weve had more testimony and more paper than ever before.
The president has also been criticized even by some liberals for his use of drones to target terrorist suspects abroad, some of who have been U.S. citizens. Obama said there are a handful of issues, mostly surrounding national security, that require some confidentiality.
However, the president pledged to be open about how drones are used, saying the public will know the parameters around the program.
What I think is absolutely true is its not sufficient for citizens to just take my word for it that were doing the right thing, Obama said.
The president added that there are different policies on how drones are used abroad, compared to how theyre used in the U.S.
I think theres never been a drone used on an American citizen on American soil, Obama said. We respect and have a whole bunch of safeguards into how we conduct counter-terrorism outside the United States
the rules are different inside the United States.
Obama...Holder...Napolitano...Need any more?
This is Obama’s Richard Nixon moment........”I am not a crook” Now shares top spot with Obama’s claim today.
If a POTUS lies like a rug and the MSM covers for him 24/7/365 is it really a lie?
That is a Great video!
“Fast and Furious” - still waiting for “Just-Us” Dept. cooperation in Congressional investigation (2 Years )
..”Benghazi Murders “- no response from State Dept. regarding Congressional committee investigation ( 5 Months,and counting)
..”Benghazi Arms Sales” - still waiting for information ( At this point , what’s the difference”)
..”Fireing 20,000 US Armed Sevices , and sending $700 million to Islamic terrorists”
etc. , etc, etc.,...
Sounds like he just finished a bong or snorted a couple lines of coke. I guess it all depends on what your definition of "tranparency" is.
The usual media hacks will continue with the protection racket.
Ridicule and social torment is the only thing that will work in a society that so highly values the valueless musings of other vapid shallow minds 24/7.
We should have all seen this trend when Clinton was not hounded from office for (at least) stuffing cigars in an interns hoo-hoo.
I think I see the problem. Obozo is using the loony left dictionary of ordinary words. Everyone else is using a regular dictionary.
It staggers the imagination that he gets away with defining government transparency as making the visitor log public. Or that the rules (he illegally promulgated) are made public on the INTERNET.
I think? He thinks he's so dang clever.
It's really as easy as mouth-breathing to him.
Here’s a few he forgot to tell us. Who was aboard the plane when the fake Air Force one buzzed New York? What are the names of the people who were in the Benghazi consulate when the attacks started and when can we speak to them.what is the name of the highest ranking official who okâd Fast and Furious, or Susan Rice’s TV appearance?
The value of a free press is not and has not been been exercised with liberal leaders for some years. They cover for Dems no matter how blatantly corrupt and skewer the GOP.
It would be understandable the media would report this way in a country run by a dictator...but then it looks like we may be going that way.
You’ve got that exactly right, lying comes second nature to him.
I’ve read that people in the administration were meeting in (coffee shops?) or some such places to avoid the meetings with supporters being put on record.
I can’t remember who was involved.
LOL, the guy is a sociopath.
He meant that his administration’s lies are the easiest to see through ...
2) The drama is unfolding as Congress debates whether to toughen anti-leak laws to crack down on classified information being provided to the news media. The Obama administration has responded by ordering that thousands of U.S. intelligence and law enforcement employees be questioned about media leaks when theyre polygraphed during security clearance screenings. In an unprecedented move, the administration also has criminally prosecuted numerous government employees for leaking. Whistleblower and media advocates fear that the aggressive efforts will have a chilling effect on the reporting of government wrongdoing but wont stop classified information from being leaked when its politically advantageous to administrations.
3) The attack on whistleblowing, by design, seriously impedes investigative reporting; as Jane Mayer put it recently: when our sources are prosecuted, the news-gathering process is criminalized, so its incumbent upon all journalists to speak up. Worse still, allowing the Executive Branch to leak at will information that glorifies the President and his policies, while aggressively suppressing all information that does the opposite, is the classic recipe for propagandizing without limit.
I think he is perfectly transparent. I very clearly see who he is and what his agenda is.
Well, he told Joe Wilson that illegals would not be covered under Obamacare causing ol’ Joe to call him out during one SOTU address, when it was really Napolitano’s fault, somehow, and he assured all of us that his `Affordable Care Act’ would be debated extensively on CNN, but it was not, in fact, due to an oversight by an aide, one of his minions suggested that we must pass it in order to blah blah blah, and of course Holder `turtled-up’ on `Fast and Furious’ and Clinton, Benghazi, I believe his illegal alien relatives are still under the radar breathing American air, but that’s INS’s fault
we still don’t have an explanation for why he claimed to be an Indonesian at one time during his career as a professional student, like his Marxist father who suggested in one scholarly paper that people could be taxed at 100%—sure, we don’t hear about those things, but that’s his MSM butt-buddies fault, ‘That’s not his!’—and it’s a little unclear why he was shown in print as having been born in Kenya or why his campaign committee (again, not on him) supplied a fake birth certificate, his wife is apparently now in helmet defilade after making a complete chump of herself for four years, his staff makes him trot the kids out regularly to make political hay but otherwise they are strictly off-limits at Sidwell school, protected by armed guards, eating complete, nutritious meals or on million dollar vacations with the dam, he hasn’t started his own vacation bingeing yet (except for golfing with red balls), but `the day ain’t over yet’, and we’d all like to be a fly on the wall at certain
Chicago “mens’ clubs”, although cavorting for most of his life with homosexuals is probably all perfectly innocent, Carney makes him stage fake photo ops, we haven’t had a budget for four years, that’s on Bernanke, he has done every thing he can to frustrate domestic energy production (for completely transparent reasons per the Dept. of Energy and, I suspect, blowhole algore while saying that he wants to create jobs, et cetera and so on ... Geitner in the woodpile?, his Secret Service detail, those bad boys, are completely above-board although I suppose there really is no telling how much we haven’t heard about their top-down shenanigans, but that’s not him.
(taking a deep breath)
political payoffs (see: “bailouts”, TARP) to unions and fake `green’ outfits and others—a masterful exercise in Beltway 3-card Monte, but carried out by others, to be sure, his cabinet consists of World-class Weasels—If it matters!—but make no mistake about it: That’s not on him ... so off the top of my head, I really can’t really think of any failures on his part to be anything other than perfectly honest and transparent with the American public.
It must still be Bush’s fault.
Very well said and I’d bet he agrees with every word. The turkey couldn’t tell the truth if his life depended on it.
It has never been so transparently clear that our government is so intent on destroying America and the Freedom She stands for.
