The Obama administration is continuing George W. Bush’s policy of arguing that logs of visitors to the White House — health-care executives, of all people — are not public, Bill Dedman reports for MSNBC.com.
David Kurtz has a withering take on the news at Talking Points Memo: “
Cheney Obama refuses to release visitor logs showing which energy health care company executives visited the White House.”
OK, we get it that we’re not suffering through Barack Obama’s economy or his war in Iraq — at least not yet. But governmental openness is not only something the president promised, but it’s also under his direct control. Enough already.
