Post-election, media discovers Obama is a liar
Milkbag Milbank, who post-election, has discovered his President is a do as I say and not as I do type of guy:
“My administration,” President Obama wrote on his first day in office, “is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”
Those were strong and hopeful words. Four years later, it is becoming more and more clear that they were just words.
I suppose it depends how one defines openness:
By certain measures, “overall secrecy has actually increased rather than declined,” said Steven Aftergood, who runs the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy. “Criminalization of unauthorized disclosures of information to the press has risen sharply, becoming a preferred tactic. Efforts to promote public accountability in controversial aspects of counterterrorism policy such as targeted killing have been blocked by threadbare, hardly credible national security secrecy claims.”
But Milkbag still manages to write a note for Broncobama and sign it as his mother:
The Obama administration has, to its credit, made progress in a few areas: releasing more of the White House visitor logs, disseminating more information about nuclear weapons, disclosing more about intelligence spending, and declassifying more historical records.
Yes, and Ted Bundy, to his credit, was considered handsome and charismatic by his victims, with fastidious personal grooming habits.
Barack Obama: making the Clinton Administration look forthright since 2009. And the imbedded yet unspoken liberal political thoughts Milbank brings forth: 1) The election is over and we can discuss some of Obama’s shortcomings now. And 2) What, you expected the man to keep his word?
