The Hill: @BarackObama’s administration is as transparent as lead*.

Just how bad is the Obama administration’s Cone of Silence? It’s not so much about this

A slew of media organizations have petitioned the government to release ObamaCare data that the White House has refused to make public.

CNN, ABC, MSNBC and others have filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) seeking information on the beleaguered healthcare.gov website. They have also asked for government documents revealing how many people have enrolled in the new healthcare exchanges.

Other media organizations who have filed FOIA requests on ObamaCare include the Huffington Post, Reuters, Politico, National Journal and Time magazine.


…as it is about this.

The Hill obtained the HHS FOIA log through a FOIA request.

When you have to make a FOIA request just to find out who has made FOIA requests, well, you are not dealing with a transparent government.

*And in my opinion, it’s just as toxic, too.

    The main difference, of course, is that lead serves a useful purpose.

      To be fair, it is serving a useful purpose from a certain point of view. They obviously believe that they have no obligation to answer any questions that might cause any damage to the election prospects, ever. And that they will never be punished for that.

      I wish I could say that was certainly not going to be the case, but the other side seems to have fiendish luck and a lot of shills.

    As always, Terry Pratchett has the appropriate quote…

    β€œAnd these are your reasons, my lord?”
    “Do you think I have others?” said Lord Vetinari. “My motives, as ever, are entirely transparent.”
    Hughnon reflected that ‘entirely transparent’ meant either that you could see right through them or that you couldn’t see them at all.”

    You better watch out: Obama is like the creepy, spying Santa who keeps a list of who has been naughty or nice to him.

    He knows when you’re been sleeping, he knows when you’re awake, he knows if you’ve been bad or good and he will make you pay the price if you cross him.
