Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Irony of the day, “Obama and transparency” edition


President Obama finally and quietly accepted his “transparency” award from the open government community this week — in a closed, undisclosed meeting at the White House on Monday.

The secret presentation happened almost two weeks after the White House inexplicably postponed the ceremony, which was expected to be open to the press pool.

This time, Obama met quietly in the Oval Office with Gary Bass of OMB Watch, Tom Blanton of the National Security Archive, Danielle Brian of the Project on Government Oversight, Lucy Dalglish of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and Patrice McDermott of, without disclosing the meeting on his public schedule or letting photographers or print reporters into the room.

  1. Huh? What? Was that sorta like his Nobel Peace Prize thing? Is that like an award they give for doing the exact opposite of what they are supposed to be giving it for? Go figger.

  2. Carney said that this administration was the most transparent of any administration and I guess this proves it. I agree with Carney as a matter of fact. You can see right though Obama.
