    Re: White House office to delete its FOIA regulations

    The move is based on a court ruling from 2009

    A: Since it was first established by President Carter in 1977, the Office of Administration responded to FOIA requests under the Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations. The office is no longer required by regulation to respond to those requests.

    Eliminating checks and balances is a road Mother Nature doesn't allow, and I offer a simple example of poison ivy, which always has the jewelweed growing nearby as an antidote to ivy poisoning... for our protection. Take away the protection and we suffer, and so it shall be.
    Absolutely! Is this a republic or not?

    And there was no blanket smear. It was a pinpoint criticism of one Canadian. Better check your reading. The Guess Who, BTO, Loverboy, Brian Adams, good things to come out of Canada.

    Explaining the White House FOIA rule repeal

    People's angst is misplaced by partisan hatred.
    And this department in the White House complied, even after the ruling until just now.

    The fact is the white house is now less transparent, even as it claims to be the most transparent in history. Its laughable.

    Ok fine, give this WH credit for complying even when they had been relieved of the obligation, if that's what makes you feel good. I don't know why the court did that, I wish they hadn't have, and I hope that another court will reverse that soon. I suppose you too would like to see that. If so, you'd best work toward that end. Criticizing the WH for not doing something that they're no longer required to do isn't all that productive.

    You dont agree with his argument, so you seek to smear him by calling him a neo-con.

    Hes not a conservative. So what new smear will you move on to?

    Once again, you dont understand. I am criticizing the white house for ending what it says it IS doing-being transparent.

    No, the person who wrote the article decided what the context you would be. You want to excise Bush and HIS administration's violations of transparency completely from the conversation, because otherwise how can you make it all about Obama and, by extension, all liberals?

    And you're still wrong about the other thing.

    Not nearly getting as much air time or column inches as a bunch of other, far less significant stuff. Yeah, seems the Biased Lame Stream Media and their editorial decisions are striking again. Might very well be why so many of the electorate are so clueless about how badly the nation is being led.
    You are claiming that the story isn't being reported by the "Biased Lame Stream Media" when it was a mainstream source that reported it. So now you're just complaining that it's not getting as much coverage as you'd like and that, in and of itself, is "bias."
