It‚??s about time: Mitt Romney has responded to the Obama campaign‚??s scurrilous insinuations about his private-sector past by wondering when President Transparency might get around to letting us see those Fast and Furious documents he and Attorney General Eric Holder have been protecting:
As Romney noted, Fast and Furious is ‚??not some personal matter,‚?Ě but rather ‚??the action of his administration.‚?Ě¬† He might also note the Obama administration‚??s extreme reluctance to disclose information about such actions as its ‚??green energy‚?Ě loans, or Gulf oil drilling moratorium.¬† The Senate had to use subpoenas to pry information out of the Administration over the Fort Hood shootings.
This is surely one of the most secretive Administrations in history, a point highlighted with Kafkaesque absurdity when the Obama administration censored 194 pages of internal emails about‚?¶ its Open Government Directive.¬† To paraphrase Winston Churchill‚??s description of Russia, Barack Obama remains a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, issuing loud whines about other people‚??s lack of transparency.
