The Only Thing “Transparent” Are the Lies, Pt.#…Well, I’ve lost count


This administration’s idea of “limited government” is only taking over two of the Big Three car makers, instead of all three.

And their idea of “transparency” is to order General Motors CEO Ed Whitacre to tell you that GM has repaid its bailout loan “in full and ahead of schedule.” In reality, you paid it back. And I’m very, very proud of you.

“Limited Government”? That’s creating a vast new Federal “Consumer” agency. And “Transparency” is giving it access to everyone’s bank records. This new government agency is needed to protect you against false advertising…like the government’s GM ad!

But there is one area where they really do believe in those concepts: limiting national security and transparency for our enemies:

Less than a month ago, the Obama administration amended the US nuclear-response policy to remove all strategic ambiguity from the process, explicitly delineating when the US would consider a nuclear response to an attack. Yesterday, the White House did the same with our nuclear inventory. After decades of deliberate ambiguity about the exact numbers of nuclear weapons the US has, the Obama administration leaked the exact number…

This is like trying to stop political killings of leaders by publicly releasing the numbers of their bodyguards.

I’ve explained many times how Pres. Reagan-in-Reverse is dangerously pursuing “Strength through Peace” rather than the real Reagan’s “Peace though Strength”.

This is Obama begging the “World” to like us, despite our many “crimes”, such as winning WWII, the Cold War and keeping the peace for generations.

Begging someone to like you works even more poorly for nations than it does for individuals; it invites contempt and is taken as a mark of weakness. Correctly so, in this case.

This will also enable the Iranians to claim “They have 5,113–we only want one!”

If “Weakness is provocative”, Obama is picking a fight.

And you don’t bring an ACORN-organizer to an ICBM fight.
