    Most transparent White House ever...


    Most transparent White House ever...


    Most transparent White House ever... - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com


    Police chased reporters away from the White House and closed Lafayette Park today in response to a gay rights protest in which several service members in full uniform handcuffed themselves to the White House gate to protest "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

    People who have covered the White House for years tell me that's an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests.



    Interesting. One would think the White House would support such protests given his agreement with these protesters in principle.

    Maybe Obama doesn't want to wake up and see the common peoples protesting. I don't know why he wouldn't want people protesting over something he supports. Maybe he doesn't plan on repealing DADT?

    I don't think he doesnt want to repeal DADT. I think it may be politically unfeasable. I'm sure the Republicans will accuse him of being the Gay Anti-Christ if he really went for it

    They're pretty transparent. I can see right through 'em, as a matter of fact.

    I think it's funny people believe a Chicago politician when he says he's going to be open and honest about his administration. Could one be any more gullible?

    If Obama's White House is the most transparent than I have oil and natural gas reserves in my backyard.

    Did anybody read the link? The Park Service was responsible.

    How can you expect a sitting President, at a time in history when the whole ****ing world is going crazy, to micromanage such a trivial incident.

    That's hypocrisy.

    No, the park service took the blame (ie. fell on the sword for the White House). Gullible is believing the spokeman of the park service saying the White House had no involvement. Believe me, service members handcuffing themselves to the front of the White House gate WILL involve the White House.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The link has the following:


    UPDATE: U.S. Park Police spokesman David Schlosser tells POLITICO his service erred in pushing the reporters back, and stressed that the White House played no role in the move.
