This is transparency?

Obama admin 50% more secretive than the previous admin - denying even more Freedom of Information Requests than ever before:,0,466931.story?track=rss

But seriously - if you read the article, Obama himself told his various chiefs of staff to change their policies and be more "open" and their response was to completely ignore him. When his own people don't give a damn what he has to say, why should anyone else?

  • Ok, he's telling people to do what everyone wants him to do: BE TRANSPARENT.
    They won't listen, (politicians HATE transparency) and it's still HIM that's the problem?
    Help me understand that, please.

    They work for him. He assigns them to those jobs and has the option to replace them any time he chooses. He chooses to leave them where they are, despite them ignoring him. Either he approves of their behavior or is so lacking in respect from his subordinates he can't even successfully replace them.
