    2. I don't agree that it is less transparent, considering there have been some laws established in the past decades that force some transparency. However, it is no more transparent than preceding admins and considering it was a major campaign promise, well, you get the idea. To add insult to injury he's still making the claim that he kept that campaign promise. Liar, liar.

    It's not a derail, it's illustrating the administration has lost all credibility and is capable of just about anything. I knew that... they're Socialists after all... but not everyone is up to speed like we are on their nefarious ways.

    I wonder... how many reporters have they strong armed and screamed down in the last 10-days?
