    "The Obama administration is appealing a judge's ruling that Secret Service records of visitors to the White House complex are subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act....

    The position taken by the Obama Justice Department, namely that White House visitor records are presidential records and not agency records, is essentially the same one that the department took under President George W. Bush."


    yeah, he's a breath of transparently fresh air, obama is.

    :lol:


    meet the new boss

    Of course, under the Bush admin, such a policy was tantamount to treason.

    Ugh them libs.

    I agree, records unless necessary for national security should be open for inspection. I still wonder what and who decided our energy policy under Bush/Cheney, and what that policy was/is?

    "Inconsistencies of opinion, arising from changes of circumstances, are often justifiable."

    Anyone who has been promoted, and by that I mean became a supervisor, manager or agency/business chief knows that the perspective one has on advancement changes.

    and now a justification. you're pulling out the whole arsenal, huh?

    :thup:

    i guess that change in perspective is behind the signing statements he'd never use to end run around congress, too.

    Weak indeed.

    But there's some comfort in predictability.

    Yea i don't understand all the secrecy on this one. I think we have a general idea of who the visitors were anyway. Most would be big Left/Democrat donors such as George Soros. He should just release the logs. Maybe there's something very embarrassing they're hiding. Who knows?
