To Obama Transparency is Opaqueness

I think that there are discussions even about transparency and developing rules about transparency that we need to be able to have quietly and behind closed doors–Daniel Gordon


"I will also hold myself, as president, to a new standard of openness." - President Barry Hussein Soetoro
We already know that Closing Guantanamo Bay prison is keeping Guantanamo Bay prison open, to president Barry Hussein Soetoro. We also know that Ending the war in Iraq is continuing the war in Iraq, escalating the war in Afghanistan and staring a war with Libya to the president. Therefore, it is of little surprise that Transparency is Opaqueness to the president. (see 2:36min video)

The president is preparing to sign an executive order that would give the federal government the power to punish or reward government contractors based on which Party and what causes that they support. Nevertheless, what the president is calling this executive order is transparency or disclosure of political spending by government contractors. (see Executive Draft)

Executive Draft Disclosure of Political Spending By Government Contractors

Like everything with Democrats what is—is not really, what it seems. There is always an underlying and insidious motive the, “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Sure Democrats say that an executive order the president is floating is about transparency but there is this history with Democrats, which establishes that this executive order is more about political favoritism rather than transparency. (see articles here and here)

Following Congressman Darrell Issa’s oversight committee attempts to address the reality that the president’s proposed executive order would produce. (see 6:14min video)

With the blatant politicizing of everything the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration leaves very little room for trust. There is a warranted and healthly mistrusted of the Soetoro administration concerning this Executive Order. There is also a mistrust of the entire Soetoro agenda.
