    I would say Obama is on par with past Administrations on transparency. Nope he did not live up to the promise of being the most transparent administration, not even close IMO.

    Yes, I like that one. They obviously take us for fools. Well, it's really his supporters that he takes for idiots, anyone that can think for themselves knows better.

    Lets be honest here & put down the party affiliations, this guy is the most corrupt narrcisistic liar to ever occupy the oval office. I think a better question would be Is there anything this president hasnt lied about?

    I guess you could say they are transparently not following the Constitution.

    We know transparency is equivalent muddy water.
    And Earnest's defending it is not news, it's how tastefully will he deliver....

    No its not, but the Obama presidency was suppose to be an improvement over Bush's lack of transparency. See how its getting worse.

    AS a longtime supporter and colleague of Barack Obama at the University of Chicago, as well as an informal adviser to his 2008 campaign, I had high hopes that he would restore the balance between government secrecy and government transparency that had been lost under George W. Bush, and that he would follow through on his promise, as a candidate, to promote openness and public accountability in government policy making.

    It has not quite worked out that way. While Mr. Obama has taken certain steps, notably early in his administration, to scale back some of the Bush-era excesses, in other respects he has shown a disappointing willingness to continue in his predecessor’s footsteps.

    On par?

    LOL, no way you typed that with a straight face. This guy is redefining the position. He's slightly more transparent than Hugo Chavez, and I'm not even sure about that.

    Never thought I'd see this country run by someone that corrupt and incompetent. It is truly mind boggling.

    Yet, many people still support him. It explains how people like Castro, Amin, and Hussein manage to gain and keep power, I suppose.

    There's no question that Obama turns out to have a less transparent presidency than Bush-2, however, he too was far less transparent than his predecessors. The real shame in all this is that you and yours failed (or refused) to spot it in the last administration just as good partisan lefties fail/refuse to acknowledge it in the current administration. So, like everything else that's wrong, watch for more and worse in the next administration.
