Obama's transparency??

    habeeposted 7 years ago

    Didn't Obama promise us transparency in his government? According to Anderson Cooper, the government has shut down reporting on the oil leak/spill. The video is below. And this comes from CNN - not some right-wing fringe group!

      Absolutely reprehensible.  Someone's got some 'splainin' to do.

      I hope this story has legs and we get some answers.

        Ron, I'm glad you can see Obama's faults. Some of his supporters seem to think he has none. By the same token, I can see his good points - unlike some of the far right wing who think he's all bad.

          I didn't vote for him, and have frequently pointed out my disagreements with him.

          He has however already accomplished more good than any president of my lifetime - going back to Kennedy.  The recent bar is of course very low, W is in any serious historian's conversation of worst president ever.  Clinton had the brains but lacked the integrity for the job.  GHWB wasn't too bad, it's a shame the apple fell so far from the tree.  Reagan apparently had a medical excuse for his Palinesque statements...

          And so it goes

            I guess you mean the good he has done is in the health care bill? I think that will wind up being his Waterloo.

              Ron Montgomeryposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              Yes I do.  It was the wingnuts who referred to this as his Waterloo.  It is in fact his Waterloo...


              ...and he is Wellington.

                If you say so, the polls certainly show a difference in opinion from you.

                Yeah, Beef Wellington! lol

                Stick a fork in him. He's done. big_smile

                  Far from done.  he will accomplish much more and piss off the wingnuts in the process over the next 6+ years.

                  It's not the least bit surprising that you don't know who Wellington was.

                    I'm sure he'll anger many people for the rest of his life (may it be a long one!), but after 2012 he'll be doing it somewhere other than our White House.

      When it was all Bush's fault and even BP's, we heard everything.
      Now that Obama's "taken charge", of course we're not gonna have access to knowing what's going on.
      It is, after all, a matter of national security!  roll
      Kinda like the border situation.   When Obama gets his hands on it, we'll be shut out of what's going on there too, mark my words.  Citizens nor States like Arizona are allowed to act on anything on their own, ya know.   We must wait for the great Obama to save us all!

      I's ironic that CNN finally may see what rotten tyranny comes from the White House.    I noticed that the first interview with Admiral Allen showed his vow to be transparent about the spill;  but the second one had him standing by Robert Gibbs, the White House patsy, and he didn't say a word, I betcha, that Gibbs hadn't authorized him to say.

    It went out the window as soon as he took his oath.

    The anti-obama movement is growing rapidly. People who still want to believe his lies are waking up to the truth.

      I talked to a 21 year old woman today who said she was registering to vote just to vote against Obama. She said a bunch of her friends were doing the same, so much for the youth vote.

        I talked to a wingnut yesterday who said he and a bunch of his buddies were gonna watch Glenn Beck.

        His statement is as relevant as yours.

          Its relevant to Becks ratings, did you have a point?

          1. Ron Montgomery profile image60
            Ron Montgomeryposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            You implied that your small-scale anecdotal evidence indicated that Obama had lost the youth vote.

            I implied that your implication was absurd and irrelevant. smile

              Yes, I know, it is small-scale anecdotal evidence. I just see it turning into large-scale fact, of course I could be wrong.
