Must be a tough day for the Kool-Aid crowd

Obama wins court battle, will keep White House visitors log secret and sealed until 2025.

Those of you with a loooong memory – all the way back to the 2007 campaign – may remember the Great Divider’s vowed to conduct “the most transparent administration in history”, and who can possibly forget his repetition of that promise in his 2010 State of the Union address after he’d forgotten to do what he promised in 2008?

During his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama talked about the importance of restoring trust in government.

To close the credibility gap, Obama said, “we must take action on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue to end the outsized influence of lobbyists; to do our work openly; and to give our people the government they deserve.”

“That’s why, for the first time in history, my administration posts our White House visitors online,” he said.

Can there be any doubt in anyone’s mind that Obama would have done what he’d said he’d do if he hadn’t been sued and forced to defend his secrecy policy over the next three years? And of course, now that he’s won that battle, there’s no particular reason to throw away his victory just to satisfy his critics, is there?

“The promises made then are no longer operative”, White House spokesman told FWIW today. “Just forget it.”

    Chief Judge on this case is all you need to know: Clinton appointee, Chicago, Harvard, hopes to be on the SCOTUS. Basically sucking up now.

    I give up. This is the most hypocrtical, lying bastard this office has ever seen. The American people are f-ed and deserve everything they have coming to them for being the compliant slugs they are.

    These people are everything they accused George Bush of being.

    As the media yawns.
