Transparency

Romney's Taxes

Has Andrew Breitbart won? The failure to properly vet the president was a rallying cry of Breitbart shortly before his death. On Saturday the über liberal New York Times promised to vet President Obama this election cycle. The Grey Lady, who in prior award winning journalistic fashion reported glowingly on 1930s progressive icon Joseph Stalin, admitted to not doing it’s job during the last election. From the Times Public Editor:

According to a study by the media scholars Stephen J. Farnsworth and S. Robert Lichter, The Times’s coverage of the president’s first year in office was significantly more favorable than its first-year coverage of three predecessors who also brought a new party to power in the White House: George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan.

Color us unimpressed. The Obama campaign still routinely thinks that it plays by different rules than everyone else. Especially when it comes to issues of disclosure, asking others to do that which it would not. From blocking the release of White House visitors list  to delaying Freedom Of Information Act requests from conservative groups, the Obama camp makes a mockery of the “most open and ethical administration in history” promise. That’s without getting into Solyndra, hookers for the Secret Service, Fast and Furious, and lots of Crony Capitalism.

 

Perhaps the only way to get some answers would be to hack his teleprompter. That’s a better plan then relying on outfits like the New York Times to report fairly on the President.

 

Update: I changed the title to match the article and cartoon. The original title was a play on how unrelated the calls Romney’s taxes are on anything to do with actual transparency. I was being too clever by half  -AG
