    Obama Closes Curtain on Transparency


    AS IF THERE EVER WAS ANY IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!



    "The most transparent administration this country has ever seen"... well, that goes down as just another MASSIVE obama LIE!

    President Obama has abolished the position in his White House dedicated to transparency and shunted those duties into the portfolio of a partisan ex-lobbyist who is openly antagonistic to the notion of disclosure by government and politicians.

    There never really was any in the first place. He just figures at this point there's no more need for the charades he's called "transparency."

    Everybody knows it was just ANOTHER big, fat lie anyway. obama is getting to the point where he just doesn't give a fuck. He's gotten away with so much shit already, he doesn't care.

    Transparency Czar gone? lol! Truly classic. I said all along that "Hope & Change" was just an empty slogan for empty heads. This one's pretty funny. Thanks.

    The most transparent ever? How could anyone believe that lie?
    Remember Campaign promises are specifically exempt in the truth in advertising laws.
    No laws were broken, however it was still a lie.


    Back in the old days one could just walk in off the street and stand a pretty good chance of talking to the president.
    And hang out in congress as long as you behaved yourself.
    Not even any metal detectors or multiple layers of security most times.

    Nixon was the first for them to be called "czars".

    But every President has advisers.

    Kudos to the spinmasters at the Washington Examiner.

    The story is that the so-called "ethics czar" is now the Ambassador to the Czech Republic.

    He never opened the curtain. That was just another lie. Just another lie the corrupt Liberal MSM regurgitated over & over again. "Hope & Change"...Empty slogan for empty heads.
