"More" or "most" doesn't mean "total." Not arguing that has the most transparent presidency, he certainly doesn't, but one item doesn't prove that.

Is this what Obama was talking about when he said that his administration will be the most transparent??

Investigators: White House Blocked Release of Spill's Worst-Case Scenarios - FoxNews.com

Did he lie again???

Read your own article:

WASHINGTON -- The White House blocked efforts by federal scientists to tell the public just how bad the Gulf oil spill could have been, according to a panel appointed by President Barack Obama to investigate the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.

Do you now see the stupidity of the comments in your OP? Do you honestly believe that POTUS instructed officials on site to play down estimates, then appointed a panel to reveal that fact??

This story is really a big picture example of unprecedented transparency--yet, leave it to Fox News to spin it into a negative and allow their viewers to call the President a liar.

**Federal first-responders low-ball estimates for a variety of reasons - BPs data, not sharing data with non-government scientists, general confusion and lack of SOP.

**Low estimates were made through May 27

**President appoints panel to review causes and response effectiveness

**Panel reports that early estimates were wrong

Of course, this report also flies in the face of the of partisan hackery that went on around Fox during the spill -- they pushed a lot of falsehoods about the oil just disappearing and they mocked environmentalists.

Who was it on Fox that accused the President of intentionally causing the spill?

Do I hear an apology? One item? Oh surely you don't expect us to believe there is only one item?

I am not Obama nor am I running for office. Don't spin. You have no intentions of doing anything because you have no evidence. Don't play games with me, I've been around a lot.

Birthers can see anything logical. There's no sense in even trying.

did you see the link on page 2 that I gave you to read ???

Why doesn't Obama show the evidence himself??? Instead of third parties talking and writing articles about it?? Obama should clear the air himself.

Whether or not Obama is entitled to be President is neither here nor there, the brutal fact is, he is President and nothing will change that until such time as either his (God forbid) second term runs out or he is voted out of office.
The American electorate got exactly what they wanted and indeed deserved when they elected him as President.
So all his detractors can continue with their attempts at distraction, none of which will sway this President from doing that which he promised.

:doh Because he has more important things on deal with.

1) Bad economy
2) Afgan War
3) helping his struggling party this fall.

We didn't elect him to be fighting rumors.


Besides what is the difference on who tells you? facts are facts...
