    You can't make this stuff up. Obama is truly a satire of himself.

    Despite his claims to run the most transparent White House EVAH, his adminstration has denied an incredibly high rate of FOIA requests (a third). Bills are not posted on line in advance of voting..and so on.

    And yet, he was to receive an Award For Transparency at a ceremony the other day...

    President Obama was due to accept an award from a coalition of good government groups recognizing "his deep commitment to an open and transparent government" in conjunction with Sunshine Week, the UPI reports.

    However, reporters were told the event was postponed "due to changes to the President's schedule." No other reason was given.


    Sunshine Award Event Postponed for Unspecified Reasons

    Most politicians are extremely transparent, just not in the actual way we'd want them to be.

    Obama knows he deserves this award about as much as he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. :D

    In addition to his utter lack of transparency, he's also making things much worse over at The Onion.

    How do they improve upon that headline?

    I guess Obama was worried about answering questions after the award ceremony. How does this guy get awards that he doesn't deserve? There are far too many Obama worshipers out there.

    An award for transparancy?? Obama?? Excuse me while I LMAO.

    God. What a joke. Thats almost as good as his "Hope and Change" bullshit and his Nobel Peace Prize.

    He'll probably receive it in private in the restroom with he and the doorman as the only witnesses. LOL
