Thanks to the Impolitic for first posting about this:
Obama Blocks Access to White House visitor log:
So much for "more transparency"!
So much for "[the white house] is the people's house," not the President's.
As BluePitBull is fond of saying, if the voters don't want something that the politician does, "too bad."
Voters overwhemingly voted Obama in office based on his promises of "more transparency" and "change we can believe in"...so far, we're getting more of the same. I posted on another broken promise back in April. You can read it here.
Here we go:
Despite President Barack Obama's pledge to introduce a new era of transparency to Washington, and despite two rulings by a federal judge that the records are public, the Secret Service has denied msnbc.com's request for the names of all White House visitors from Jan. 20 to the present. It also denied a narrower request by the nonpartisan watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which sought logs of visits by executives of coal companies.
From the Impolitic again:
This isn't change we can believe in. Hell, it's not even a change and all these little incidents are adding up. I'm beginning to wonder if Obama wants to be a one term president after all.
