Romney asks why President Obama won‚??t release Fast and Furious documents

Analysis: As Romney noted, Fast and Furious is “not some personal matter,” but rather “the action of his administration.”

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.‚?̬† 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.
