Even Keith "The Communist" Oberman was not happy with this.
Yes, but he also didn't discuss the possibility that revealing the names of White House visitors can be a tip off to pending administration decisions. If the administration can be trusted, and I think this one can, then who they schedule meetings with should remain discreet.
n a move that puts a cloud over transparency, White House officials are blocking access to the lists of the names of visitors to the White House.
The practice, carried over from the Bush administration, argues the public does not need to know who comes calling at the Executive Mansion, even for policy purposes.
"We are deeply disappointed," said Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington spokeswoman Anne Weismann, whose group is suing to get the records.
"The president, who has committed his administration to transparency and accountability, now takes the position of the Bush administration that the public is not entitled to know who visits the White House. These are not the actions of a pro-transparency administration," she said.
Yep folks so much for Hope and Change didn't Mr, Obama stated that his White House would be the most open and transparent in History.
Hmmm guess that all went out the window on Jan. 21 2009 so all of you who voted for Mr. Obama care to comment on this or spin it in the way you feel needed.
