Gene Healy on Obama's Laughable Commitment to Transparency


In April 2010, when President Barack Obama's then-White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced that "this is the most transparent administration in the history of our country," Politico reported that "laughter broke out in the briefing room." For those with a mordant sense of humor, writes Gene Healy the Obama administration's record on transparency is comedy gold. The latest joke? Obama's use of executive privilege to block the investigation of Fast and Furious.
