Obama doesn't keep any of his Campaign Promises ...
We wonder: could this have anything to do with the fact that candidate Obama flipped his position during the campaign and backed the telecom industry's immunity campaign?"I -- [Oh Great! Now What?] -- am truly disappointed that the Obama Administration is proving to be every bit as bad, arguably worse, than the Decider when it comes to openness and transparency in government. This just sucks: ... And all of this is in spite of Obama’s vow—in a memo on the first full day of his presidency—to create 'an unprecedented level of openness' in government. As a big fan of this President, this is extremely disturbing and distressing, to say the least ... " (SOURCE)
Remember when Barack Obama was running for president and he promised that, unlike secrecy-obsessed George Bush and Dick Cheney, he would insist on a “transparent” administration that wouldn’t hide information from the American people unless it was absolutely necessary? That would have been nice. But of course it turns out it was just talk. Obama has only been president for 10 months and already he is just as casual as his predecessors about demanding secrecy for things that have no good reason to be kept secret at all. Why, for instance, is the Obama White House fighting so hard to prevent the release of documents about who lobbied Congress to give immunity to the telephone companies that cooperated with Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program?
