Obama’s Administration Less Transparent In 2010, AP Reports

March 28, 2011 by  

A recent analysis by The Associated Press (AP) reveals that President Barack Obama's administration has not followed through on his promise to create a more transparent Federal government.

The report stated that citizens, journalists and companies requested information 544,360 times under the United States Freedom of Information Act last year, which was up about 41,000 from the previous year. However, the government responded to nearly 12,400 fewer requests than it did in 2009.

This data is based on requests that were filed with 35 of the government's largest agencies. The AP found that nearly half the agencies took longer to provide records in 2010 than they did the previous year. In some cases, the average response time to requests was several weeks longer than in 2009.

These trends contradict Obama's campaign promise in 2008, when he called on the Federal government to disclose more information rapidly.

"Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their government is doing," Obama said when he took office, quoted by the AP.

The news provider's report was released on March 14 in conjunction with Sunshine Week, a national initiative that promotes an open dialogue about a transparent government and freedom of information.

    He has never been transparent. He promised to have health care on cspan and have the bills online to be read before he signed them. This never happened. He has done all his dirty work in secret, spent billions to get health care passed and it will cost trillions. He doesn’t care, he just wants him name in the history books as the first 1/2 white president.

    • Tom S

      The only thing transparent is the air between his ears. I wouldn’t trust him or his government to empty a cat box.

      • Kate8

        Did anyone seriously believe he telling the truth about being transparent? I think that’s what he referred to as “campaign rhetoric”.

        Just like when he said he’d end NAFTA. He assured the troubled Canadian government that it was just “campaign rhetoric”.

        How does one tell when Obama’s lying…

    What happened to Obamas promise that C- Span would cover everything of importance. asso his promise that he would not raise taxes. remember he said “I will not raise any of your taxws. not social security, the iuncome tax, the orpay roll tax, I will not raise ANY of your taxes.” then within two weeks of taking office he raised the tobacco tax.

    You may have noticed that I never refer to him as President Obama. you see I am one of those pesky birthers. I have yet to see any solid evidence that Obama is a natural born citizen. until such evidence is produced he is the UNDOCUMENTED WORKER that frauduently occupies the Presidency.

    • Tom S

      Let’s face it, you know he’s lying every time his lips move. He wouldn’t recoqnize the truth if it ran him over.

      This administration is the most anti-American I’ve seen in 65 years. With the backing of G. Soros and his evil agenda, his POTUS puppet will destroy this country.
      This country is in pretty bad shape mentally when people can’t even see that the amount of outside power are becoming our rules of law.
      Soros is a lousy POS pulling your little Leader’s strings, How can you Liberals cheer the devastation we’re facing and will be created for what used to be the best country in the world ?

      Here is a little description FROM STEVE KROFT (60 Minutes)about what Soros really stands for,,,,,

      George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” He killed and robbed his own Jewish people. What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist World class philosopher, despises the American way, and just loves to do social engineering and change cultures.

      • Kinetic1

        Please show me 1, just 1 reputable site that has posted either the video or the transcript of Steve Croft saying these things about Soros. I have searched using every combination I can think of, and not once did I see anything even close. In fact, what I did fine was one right wing blog after another misquoting and even purposely altering the transcript to suit there needs.

        • WayneT

          Kinetic1, is this what your looking for? It is an article written by Steve Kroft in reference George Soros.

          • WayneT

            I just finished reading the whole intaerview in ref, Steve Krost’s interview on George Soros . Some very powerful things said about Soros and he power over the Democratic Party. He donated a lot of money to Obama. I feel that Obama thinks he owes George Soros and is paying him back by the way Obama is going to bringing down our country. Folks, you non believers, had better wake up. This goes for you too Kinetic1.

          • usmadgirl

            Wayne T,

            Thanks for the link. I’ll have to read more later. My eyes are about to bleed! I wonder how many idiots in this country have no idea who he is & what he’s done???

          • Kinetic1

            No, it’s not what I asked for. Read it again. It starts with “This is a very long article by Steve Kroft of 60 minutes ” but then after listing all the allegations against Mr. Soros the writer says “During an interview with with George Soros done by “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft…” If this was an article by Steve Croft, why would he introduce the transcript in the third person? Add this to the fact that the transcript is altered to read,

            “KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
            SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.
            KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
            SOROS: No.”

            The real transcript was another story.

            “Kroft: “You’re a Hungarian Jew …”

            Soros: “Mm-hmm.”

            Kroft: “… who escaped the Holocaust …”

            Soros: “Mm-hmm.”

            Kroft: “… by posing as a Christian.”

            Soros: “Right.”

            Kroft: “And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.”

            Soros: “Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.”

            Kroft: “In what way?”

            Soros: “That one should think ahead. One should understand that — and anticipate events and when, when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a — a very personal threat of evil.”

            Kroft: “My understanding is that you went … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

            Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”

            Kroft: “I mean, that’s — that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”

            Soros: “Not, not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t … you don’t see the connection. But it was — it created no — no problem at all.”

            Kroft: “No feeling of guilt?”

            Soros: “No.”

            Kroft: “For example, that, ‘I’m Jewish, and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be these, I should be there.’ None of that?”

            Soros: “Well, of course, … I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was — well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in the markets — that is I weren’t there — of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would – would — would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the — whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the — I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.”

            Until you can find a REAL, REPUTABLE source that can verify that this was an article written by Steve Kroft (and I doubt you ever will) I can only assume that this is just another of the many “quotes” credited to someone who is seen as being from the left in an attempt to give credence to a right wing assault.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          I don’t know, it sure don’t look like he was misquoted THERE!!! guess you kinda blew on that one, huh???

          • WayneT

            This is an answer to Kinetic1. Kinetic1, I can’t seem to find a video of the interview between Steve Croft, and George Soros, but I have found the one I made a post on earlier, on a lot of different websites. It is possible that a video had not been made. I have always heard, where there is a lot of smoke, that has to be a fire some where. I have always found that this old adage proves itself to be true the biggest part of the time. Of course you will only believe what you want to believe. I try to keep and open mind. Whether this interview actually took place, I don’t know, but I will keep this in the back of my mind for the future. Of course, I don’t even know whether George Washington was the first president of this country since I wasn’t around back then. I just studied this in school and have read it in different books. Do you think I should believe this, or ignore it?

          • Kinetic1

            Note my response to WayneT. It would appear that, rather than attacking my research skills you should work on bringing your own reading skill up to, oh let’s say a 4th grade level?

    Is anyone really surprised? I predidicted this in May of 2008, along with the economic problems we would experience and was called a Right Wing Nut. I had decided then to purchase my first self defense weapons in order to prepare as best I could for the coming Civil War.

  • Raggs

    Geee… The AP is slow aren’t they?

  • Mick

    I think Obama was very transparent, I saw through him the first time he opened his mouth………
    I have met a lot of people talking about this CHANGE Obama ran on in 2008 and when I asked them what change he was referring to and the SPECIFICS of this Change, the common reply was that ” He will change Washington the way we know it and the way they operate ” They had no clue on HOW he would change this Country…
    Well folks HE CERTAINLY DID ! Are the people Happy now ??
    This VOGUE ( I certainly believe that’s what it was ) has certainly cost this country a whole lot.
    Open your eyes people , the worse is yet to come if we chose our leaders in that fashion..

    Judicial Watch has been working overtime to keep America informed via lawsuits. To date, the current Liar-in-Chief has gone out of his way to be anything but “transparent.” He is so full of “INTEGRITY” that he’s willing to do almost anything to cover his tracks in his attempt to destroy America.
    Start with Herr Obummer, and then include his czars or his cabinet flunkies and his healthcarescam or his latest diversion in Libya. This ‘prez’ is more like a reincarnated Bubba Clinton. Truth is just a word to Obummer and Clinton.
    Obummer’s ‘multiple personality’ approach does NO good for America. One day, Herr Obummer acts like FDR, and the next he acts like Wilson or saul alinsky. Who IS this hate-America first airhead?


    This administration is as transparent as a lead shield, with so many of the recycled Clinton myrmidons being appointed to prime positions. They learned real well under Bubba about CYA, but I don’t believe Obama will survive because people will only believe their crap for so long before they revolt.

    Make sure you check out this website in reference to our Muslim President giving $770,000,000 dollars to rebuild Mosque in foreigh countries. And people still refuses he is a Muslim. Open you eyes folks, or quit pretending that he is not a Muslim.

    • Kinetic1

      The Video referenced USAID as the source of the money going to these foreign countries, which makes sense since that is the job of USAID. Yes, that money does come from our tax dollars, but it’s ridiculous to assume that President Obama is behind it. I have a lot of experience with USAID and I can tell you without reservation that the President does not have the time to consider all these requests for aid. The video also noted that the first Mosque was at risk due to a failing sewer system. If the Mosque had not been mentioned (and I believe it was mentioned only for inflammatory purposes) would you be so surprised that we had helped? Isn’t it common for the US to try and prevent the spread of illness in foreign countries?

      Is it a good idea to try and improve our relations with Islamic nations by helping them to rebuild their holy places? I don’t know. Is it a good idea for the US to prop up Israel? Should we be providing aid to Christian missions overseas? I guess we could just seal our boarders and pretend the rest of the world’s troubles have nothing to do with us.

      • WayneT

        Kinetic1, with our huge debt we should only be helping ourselves, not helping out the rest of the world. Who helps us out? If you are personally in deep debt, and may possibly lose your home, are you going to neglect you own family, and give your cash to your next door neighbor? I am betting that you would have better sense than to do that. Some of these nations we are helping have been around for a lot long than this country. Why is it that they are in this economic shape anyway? It is because their too lazy to work and get an educaion. How could this nation come so far in a little over a 200 years and some of these these countries have been around for thousands of years, and still live in poverty. I simply say it is because that is the way they want to live, or they would get an education and make things better for themselves. Another thing Kinetic1, the more you give people, the more they become needy. This is a proven fact. I don’t think many will agree with your opinion. You are completely wrong on this.

        • Thamera

          Wayne you are so right. You would think the opposite would be true, but it has been demonstrated time and time again that the more you give, the more is expected and the sense of entitlement just grows and grows. I really like your analogy about the family’s. Again, so true. When I find myself conflicted about an issue, I try to break it down to family’s and individuals. Well said.

          • JUKEBOX

            I wonder if anyone knows who went about and paid for the destruction perpetrated on Asia, Egypt, Israel, and Europe by the Muslims over a thousand years ago. There was no United States foreign aid back then, but there is an old saying “HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF”, and the Muslims are well on their way with the help of our “MUSLIM EDUCATED”, “NON MUSLIM” President.

        • Kinetic1

          If my family is in financial trouble, but my neighbor will die without our help, we help our neighbor. I can rent a home, but I can’t replace a life. It’s easy to pretend that it’s all black and white, but that is rarely the case.

          • Thamera

            That wasn’t the scenario Kinetic1 and I don’t think that anyone is pretending that it is black and white and Wayne didn’t say that your neighbor was going to die. How about this: If your neighbor was struggling financially but you are broke…you are saying then, that you would be willing to lose your home to finance your neighbor’s home? I gotta ask: Do you have a family???

          • WayneT

            Well said, Kinetic1. Let me put this another way. This may be a little off course, but here is another analogy. You, your son (if you have a son) and your neighbor’s son are out in a boat. For some unknown reason you boat sinks, you can swim, but your son, and your neighbor’s son can’t swim. They will both drown unless you help them. You know that you can only save one, so which one will you save, your son, of your neighbor’s son? Enough said.

          • Kinetic1

            The first issue in the video started with talk about rescuing a mosque, but was really about helping fix the sewer system. In many of these countries that failed sewer, if left to an impoverished country will lead to disease and death. I could lose my house, but my neighbor could loose his life without my help. Don’t misunderstand me, I know that the U.S. is in trouble. I see the foreclosures around me and I’m thankful that we have been able to keep our home. We had to leave it and rent in another area to do so (job change) but we have been able to hold on, for now. The thing is, people in America, myself included look at a homeless person in New York living in a cardboard box and we can’t begin to imagine anything worse, but thats the norm for people all over the world. And don’t even begin spouting off about how that is a choice they made or how they could improve their lives if they were willing to work. Many of these people would love to work! They leave their families and live as virtual indentured servants just to earn a living. They put in 12 hour days 6 or 7 days a week. Don’t tell me they choose the life they have. They can’t all just up and move to the US, and even if they could we wouldn’t have them.

            Did any of you see the piece on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show last Dec. about the school kids in Malawi? Of course not, it was on MSNBC and none of you would risk exposure. 90 kids, NINETY! sitting on the floor all day long just to learn. 8 hours with no space to squirm, nothing to rest your back against (with the exception of those kids by the walls). And that’s just the lucky kids who get a class room! We complain when our classes reach a third of that! In an effort to get the kids up where they could see and sit in some sort of comfort, a local hardware store owner developed a simple two person desk with an attached bench that they could build for $48.00. He had no trouble finding workers to build them around the clock. And though it was built for 2, the kids were so excited that they sat three to a desk with no complaint. People want to work and kids want to learn.

            Over 35 million people die each day from water born illness. Americans waste billions of dollars every year on bottled water, even though much of it is no better than we can get from the tap. America is in deep, deep debt, but we still live better than most of the world’s people. Is it so wrong that our government continues the tradition of bringing hope to people around the globe?

            One last thing. I want to see foreign aid cut. I agree that there is a lot of waste out there. In the ’90s we were spending tens of billions every year on foreign aid and Israel accounted for over one third of the dollars spent. A country where per capita GDP was higher than Ireland or Spain received over 5 and a half billion dollars in aid in ’97 alone. Part of that is military aid, and they are not the only country to receive military aid, but other countries are required to spend that money on weapons built by American companies. Israel is allowed to buy FROM THEMSELVES! It’s like giving them twice as much! So let’s stop whining about helping poor nations grow crops and source clean water and instead take a long hard look at our “Friends”. That’s were we can save some money.

      • WayneT

        Kinetic1, are you a Muslim too? I am just curious. You must be since you are always siding with Obama. Good golly, wake up, and see the light. I do believe the president could stop this if he wanted to. We are in this huge debt, and you say that Obama may not know where our money is going to. If he doesn’t, then we need a president who can control where our miney is going.

        • Kinetic1

          The department of USAID oversees the requests and Congress approves the budget. I’m sure the President has some knowledge of major efforts (such as our ridiculous outpouring of money to Israel), but he can’t possibly be expected to oversee the whole program.

          • WayneT

            With $77,000,000 which is almost a billion dollars is not exactly small change. Maybe the president should make it a part of his plan to over see a large amount of money that is being spent. Maybe this is the reason we are so far in debt because because of the president’s incompetence of not wathing what we spend. You keep right on defending the president, Kenetic1. I’m sure you will end up suffering the consequences sooner, or later.

    Its truly a S H A M E that American citizens have to put up with our President going around the world and apologizing to everyone about our policies of the past and bowing to foreign leaders while doing so, who the Congressional Legal Office (CLO) proclaims was never vetted to meet the requirements of the office as mandated by the US Constitution, who refuses to release any documentation that would prove he is eligible to hold the office of President, who has broken every one of his campaign promises, is constantly caught in lies to the American people about his policies and agendas, and is bankrupting the nation with his record setting deficits of each year since he has taken office, despite his claims of cutting spending and taxes, which he has actually greatly increased. All these atrocious facts that no one will admit to, or speak up against, for the respect of the office of the Presidency, which he is not qualified or eligible to hold. The United States of America is being destroyed because of the biggest ‘Catch 22′ ever seen or heard of, and its all in the public record for everyone to see, yet no one has the guts to take any actions, so I guess we deserve what the consequences may be. If you think anything I’ve said is wrong, then try to prove it, if you can.

    When the same pukes think the muslim marxist moron is also a Christian and was born in Hawaii! We go to church with a couple who are in their late 70′s who lived on the Big Island, the husband was a federal entemologist who lived there 30 years. The wife was a worker in the register of deeds, and she has often commentted over the years what a corrupt State Hawaii was for with enough money, any thing was possible to be verified as athenic. They say there is no way authorities can keep track of peeople coming in and going out. So after all the million Onumnutts has spent to hide his records, there has to be something in the wood pile, and it isn’t a white boy!


      If people would demand to see the passport used to bring his little sorry ass back from Indonesia to Hawaii, that would tell the entire story without his birth certificate. That would be a Federal document from either Indonesia or the United States or Kenya or possibly Canada, which would be harder to falsify than a Hawaiian document.

    If we understand history, what would the world be without the US? if we had not rescued the world during world war II, we would be living under nazism or japanese imperialism. because of what we did, japan and germany are much better countries today. you have to have war in order to keep the freedom. countries which becomed weakened, do so to themselves. if we should decrease in our prosperity and freedom, its because we do it to ourselves internally. most historians will tell you this is the case. so, this means that threats from the outside usually do not take down a great country. who is doing it? our own president, and the people who want “revenge” on our wealthy for their terrible desire to get ahead, and make a better life for themselves. this usually happens when a country’s own government turns its people against each other. this is what is happening now. we need to turn the tide, fight back, and quit fighting each other. prosperity is for everyone, not just whites, blacks, or latinos, but everyone. come on people………

    The first thing we need to do is to wake up from mass delusion.

    We really have no hope unless and until we realize that America as been, for the past century, and experiment in mass hypnosis. Virtually everything we’ve been taught, in school, through media, even churches, has been nothing but lies.

    Science, medicine, education, EVERYTHING, has been devised to create this false reality that has led us to this point. We believe it all because it’s the “official” stance, even though there is NO evidence to support it. We are trained to believe what we are TOLD, not what we see or sense.

    We have been USED by the corporatist elite, people. We have given them the power to control the world, the Earth’s resources and, yes, even US. We’ve been so caught up in the quest for material pleasures that we’ve sold our national soul, and now we’re paying the price with our own destruction. WE HAVE BEEN USED AGAINST OURSELVES, and still are.

    I hope there are some of you who know what I’m talking about. Only when we are willing to look at what we’ve become, how we’ve been utterly despiritualized, do we have any hope of taking back our spirit and, somehow, our lives. This is where our power lies, because this is how we are controlled.

    We have believed that we are free, but we’ve been willing slaves. True freedom exists only in TRUTH. It is up to each one of us to determine what means, but first we must give up the LIE, which is EVERYTHING we think we know.

    The problem here is that I dont see any decent offerings climbing forth from the primarial ooze.It doesnt appear like the GOP is going to offer a viable alternative.Folks we dont just need someone that can barely defeat The current President in next years election,we need someone that can restore dignity to the office of President.We need someone that will take America on his back and carry us to victory over the plagues we are encountering.We need a fierce man who is bent on rebuilding our republic,and staving off the hackneyed attacks of the detractors of our nation.But I for one…looking out into the crowd….do not see one ushering forth to oppose what is destroying our America.The same old voices bredd the same old talk,and on it goes….on the path to destruction.Have we no courageous leaders in this country anymore?Will none cry out to revive our love of God,country,community?Alas,I fear that we have seen the enemy and it is fear itself.
    Not of what we were,or what we could be,but of what we are now.Fear that we cannot overcome our obstacles,but rather must resign ourselves to succumb to them.I for one shall disagree with that sentiment and will duel to the death with one who calls himself an American,and yet carrys such poison within his heart for our great commonwealth.If such a man exsist let him be forever cursed with the defilement that lasts within him.For these dark days breed such foolishness and confine normally brave men to retreat when such villainny cnfronts them.I will no longer tolerate dissention.I will no longer be forced into quietness while breath still courses through my gullet.Give me an ear those of you with great heart and strong minds!We need a champion….quickly now that symbolizes all that we know as good in this place.Before you let it all slip away,just think of those who gave it all so you could be here today patronizing this thread.Do them honor and choose a worthy champion…..

      Cawmun Cents – The corporatists have such a stranglehold on our government, AND OUR PEOPLE, that I don’t know how anyone but a corporatist pick could ever get close to running.

      Even if we could, somehow, manage to get someone of our choice elected (which would near impossible), he’d never survive. He’d either capitulate or…well, learn the lessons of those who’ve tried before.

        It probably won’t do any good, but today I contacted Hunters son and begged him to tell his father we need him!!!

          Joe H.

          YEA!!!! Way to go Joe! I’ll try again too! I’ve had absolutely NO WORK for 4 days, so I can take a minute to contact him again. What if the stupid media (even Fox) ignores our “new Reagan” like they did before? I know! We all write letters, emails, make calls, threaten them (did I type that “out loud”?)!

            Duncan Hunter is the new Reagan? Will he raise taxes 11 times? Will he issue amnesty for illegals already here? Will he violate our nation’s laws and sell weapons to Iran to raise money for a Godless coup in South America? There’s no question about his stand on Libya,

            “”I agree with the president. I agree with what he’s done so far in his use of force. I agree with his timing. I agree on the fact that he went in with a coalition,” Hunter told The Hill in an interview published this morning.”

            try looking up the difference between SR and JR!!! Dumba$$

          Joe H.,

          We should also start writing or contacting the Tea Party groups to get them on his band wagon. They probably don’t even know who he is. They’re still pushing the same old, same old!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Very good idea and point!!

          • WayneT

            Kenetic1, Obama has raised taxes. What about the tobacco tax he added right after taking office? He is spending our money faster then the government can steal it from us. It is ridiculous to be spending more money than what is coming in. Only a lunatic would do this. So we have a luntic in office, and he is starting another war in which Bush was critized for. If you can remember back to 911, 3000 of our people died in an attack in NY City. This is why President Bush started the war with the Muslim Extremist. It was a noble war. This deal in Libya does not threaten the US at all according to Secretary Clinton, and Robert Gates. Whey in he hell are we there????

    This is a very interesting article. I won’t comment about the radiation implications, nor the bit of tasteless language, but the idea put forward about what non-violent actions we can take against the PTB are very good, and ones I haven’t heard before.

    • Void1972

      It’s true that TPB want us dead, and if you look into cellphone use and who is behind them, you will find the largest murderer on the planet!

    The democraps planned and are still creating tax plans for corporations or*government) owned enities to control the the citizens by taxes. Elected slubs don’t abide by the rules they create and corporations just pass on the the costs to citizens just like the elected pukes do. Who do the dumb soros socialist dumbocraps think are going to pick up the tab, since the marxist/communist democrats want more spending and less working Americans? It sure will not be the UN, how muny billion are going to wasted on the goat abusing pukes as a peace kinetic mission. See all the dumbocrats who weren’t didn’t get informed, until all the pusifies EU slubs and the UN dinks had party and partied, apartently not. Don’t here a words from any dumbocrap Bush knocking idoits on their niggardly teatment by the marxist muslim moron in Cheif.

  • Marty S.

    When Barry-O said their would be transparency what he meant was that his objectives would be clear to all his cronies that helped him get elected; not to the general public. The guy is also like a bull in a china shop the way he is trashing the Constitution of the United States of America.

    • Jay

      Not only our Constitution, he is also decimating our economy by placing unreasonable restraints on our industry, using the “climate change and global warming” myth! If we can’t produce product for export, we will be forced to keep borrowing! Did Obum say he graduated from Harvard, if so, how is it he fails to understand the basics of economics?

  • http://com i41

    He may have a cat gut dimploma, he was passed thru school by affermative action plans and since cities are having to dumb down test because the special ed knuckle draggers don’t go to class or learn a damn thing except ebonics and drug dealing accounting methods. Transparency for the marxist/communist soros socialist democrats is diving in a sewage lagoon and start bobbing for floaters, it is a s–t.

  • dave

    I just want to know that he’ll(obummer) be some guy’s Bitch after he’s found guilty of Treason! hehehe

  • dave

    How do you like America now, Mrs. Obamination!

  • thomas parke

    As for Obama’s transparency factor, why could not a bonafide soverign,
    American Citizen lawfully subpoena the President into court, where
    direct questions could not be avoided or ignored by participating

    Obama, the ‘lawyer,’ could answer ‘how he worms around the Immigration Nationality Act,’ which currently brands him as no less than a treasonous bastard?

    He could also answer Atty. Phil Berg’s legal challenge, ostensibly proving Obama’s birth registration is out of order, and, that Obama’s earlier application for student aid now proves his disqualification, as U.S. President.

    Mr. Obama could also name Hollywood’s billionaires who put him into office. The Oscar crowd could mention that one during their next bigtime awards rally. George Soros might even support the event.

  • CJM

    When has this meglomaniacle administration ever been open and honest with anyone? Seems to me dumbo democratic ‘president’ has always been secretive–so much so that he would never answer the campaign questions about what he believed to be changed, why it needed to be changed, or how he would go about making those changes. Well, we found out that his changes all focused on the destruction of the United States and our US Constitution. I have always opposed this sorry excuse of a human being and wanted him impeached the day he took the oath of office (which he had no intention of following through with).
