    So living in the "World's Most Livable City" automatically means someone is an ignorant slime, only couched in terms that don't draw negative results.

    Frankly I'm ****ing sick of it, anti-Canadianism on a day when our headlines are full of pre-campaign rhetoric as our Prime Minister is proposing to extend the Iraq mission by more than doubling forces on the ground and sending a new batch into Syria to fight alongside Assad.

    Yeah who gives a **** about Canada or what anyone here might have gleaned from an un-biased reporting of the news?

    Really, you don't get it I'm sure. This WH has never been the most transparent. Even Obama supporters acknowledge this, and it's a big source of disappointment for them as you can see. But you'll need to work to overturn the courts decision that has enabled greater secrecy.

    This is the dichotomous key that is how he works. He does not agree with you so you must be bad.

    BTW, I am very sorry for the Canadian killed in Iraq last week.

    This is true. That's why some have predicted that the next WH will be less transparent still.

    Thank you.

    Hopefully it is not an indication of what's to come....

    What I hear, even just in this thread is excuses..."Boosh!" "Its not illegal!", etc.

    It just illustrates that even when you agree, you can't agree.

    So this is George Bush's 4th term. We get it.
    Not all Obama supporters are excusing him. I've seen criticism from the left for is lack of transparency.

    How many more ways can I tell you that Obama's lack of transparency, worse so than Bush now, is hugely problematic, and if not arrested, will leave the next administration worse so. The problem is that it does little good for you to bitch about it. It's his base of supporters that need to demand better.
