The most transparent administration in history strikes again:
In an obvious effort to protect President Barack Obama, a group of congressional Democrats has introduced legislation to create an official process that will allow the commander-in-chief to keep presidential records secret after he leaves office.
Ironically, Obama revoked a similar George W. Bush order in one of his first official acts as president. In 2001 Bush penned an executive order severely limiting public access to his presidential records. Shortly after swearing in, Obama killed it as part of his much-ballyhooed commitment to government transparency. At the time, the new president claimed that he was giving the American people greater access to “historic documents.”
Obama was, believe it or not, absolutely right to revoke the Bush order… which makes this attempt that much more contemptuous.
With the ongoing scandals surrounding Solyndra and Fast and Furious, is it any wonder that loyal Democrats want to protect their glorious leader?
