Big Brother Barack

Remember during the 2010 campaign how Obama promised his administration would have a level of transparency unseen before?

Obama's pledge of transparency was a joke! Is there anything Obama *doesn't* lie about? He's lied about unemployment figures, lied about the stimulus (and where all the money went), lied about health care, lied about Libya, lied about Afghanistan, lied about Iraq, broken numerous campaign promises, etc.

Look at this:

"The Homeland Security Department official in charge of submitting sensitive government files to political advisers for secretive reviews before they could be released to citizens, journalists and watchdog groups complained in emails that the unusual scrutiny was "crazy" and hoped someone outside the Obama administration would discover the practice, The Associated Press has learned."

"But at the Homeland Security Department, since July 2009, career employees were ordered to provide political staffers with information about the people who asked for records — such as where they lived and whether they were private citizens or reporters — and about the organizations where they worked. If a member of Congress sought such documents, employees were told to specify Democrat or Republican."

What the hell is this? This is taking partisan politics to a new, disturbing, and unconstitutional/illegal, level! What is this Stalin's Russia where officials draw up enemies lists and monitors who requests information? Disgusting! Anyone else outraged by this? I guess in Obama's deluded Marxist mind it is perfectly acceptable to treat the American people with such utter contempt. As usual we can expect the mainstream media to be largely silent in their coverage. If a Republican president did anything remotely of this nature they would be lambasted and excoriated by the media 24x7! What a hypocritical and biased media we have.
