Obama’s Secret Presidency Right Under Lapdogs’ Noses

leave a comment »

The same MSM’s that wanted investigations and committees on Bush’s every move, now lets Obama appoint friends to prominent, high-paying positions,changing review policies, and sign executive orders under complete secrecy without one sniff of “where’s the transparency?”

One order Obama signed Feb. 5 expanded the National Economic Council to 25 people by adding the Secretary of Health and Human Services; Secretary of Education Arne Duncan; senior adviser Valerie Jarrett; “climate czar” Carol Browner and two other officials.

Another order the president signed the same day added two slots to the Domestic Policy Council, bringing it to a total of 26 people. Some slots were reassigned. The chief technology officer was among those added to the panel, while “AIDS Policy Coordinator” was removed. It was unclear if that was a substantive change, simply reflected plans to keep the AIDS czar post at the State Department, or perhaps both.

Another Obama executive order, signed January 30, canceled two Bush-era executive orders relating to regulatory review. The White House did release chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s memo halting regulations in the works at federal agencies, but didn’t release another Obama memo setting a 100-day deadline for agency heads to recommend a new regulatory review process. The memo indicates that Obama may want to do some things differently on the regulatory front than the last Democrat in the White House, Bill Clinton.

Nothing from the Obomite cult newspapers or television networks leaving the real reporting of news to bloggers like Politico and Newsbusters.
