So much for the "Most Transparent" Administration Ever
- Obama won't let news photographers into places they were always allowed in the past, (Including under the evil, secretive Bush administration) preferring instead to use his own, trusted photographers.
- The Obama Administration picks a small, select, group of only four trusted reporters to witness his do-over inauguration, a-la ITAR-TASS 1970. (As an aside, President Bush ... you know, the "dumbest president ever" only had to take his oath of office once for each time he was elected.)
- The Obama Administration won't let news agencies cite administration sources used during background briefings on GTMO. (How did that lack of source-checking work out for Dan Rather? I can understand why the media is a little gun shy over Obama's secrecy and paranoia.)
The hypocrisy of Obama and his ilk is only beginning to pour out. We're going to see more and more of this over the next few days, months, and years. The chasm between what Obama promised us and what he's planning on imposing on us is disgusting.
On the bright side, I think I'll have plenty to blog about for the next 1458 Days.
