Where is the anger?
The left loved to accuse Bush of all planning all different kinds of cartoonish evil. There was a protest a week and a story a day of how he abused his power. Well, where are those screams of "fascist" now. Obama has taken all of Bush's policies and jacked them up to 11.....yes, this one goes to 11. Not a peep is said about it though. Its a wonder journalists dont eat their babies. They are just that despicable.....most of them anyway. Im talking to you Chrissy Matthews.
Obama agencies invoking secrecy provision more often than under Bush
One day after being sworn into office, President Barack Obama instructed federal agencies to ensure government transparency by complying with the spirit of the Freedom of Information Act law.
One year later, Obama's requests for transparency have apparently gone unheeded. In fact a provision in the Freedom of Information Act law that allows the government to hide records that detail its internal decision-making has been invoked by Obama agencies more often in the past year than during the final year of President George W. Bush.
Major agencies cited that exemption to refuse records at least 70,779 times during the 2009 budget year, compared with 47,395 times during President George W. Bush's final full budget year, according to annual FOIA reports filed by federal agencies.
