Carney on Obama: 'His Goal is Transparency and Accountability'

It's got to be difficult carrying water for this sociopath and keeping a straight face.
The Obama administration has drafted an executive order that would require government contractors to disclose some of their political donations, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

Carney said a draft of the order exists. He declined to confirm any specifics, saying it “could change over time.”

President Barack Obama “is committed to improving our federal contracting system,” Carney told reporters traveling with the president on Air Force One to California. “His goal is transparency and accountability.”
If that's his alleged goal, why won't he release his own list of contributions? Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
Pres. Obama's re-election campaign won't be disclosing how much money is taken in at the individual fundraising events attended by Pres. Obama. Neither will the Democratic National Committee.

An official says it's the same policy by which the Obama Campaign operated in the 2008 election cycle.

Fundraising numbers have to be filed with the Federal Election Commission, but often not until weeks later - and the FEC documents don't itemize amounts raised at specific fundraising events.
Ed Lasky nails it.
Barack Obama wants to chill political speech to further his chances to win reelection. He made clear his views towards the law as decided by the Supreme Court when he crassly lambasted them last year during the State of the Union address for supporting the First Amendment in their Citizens United decision (a law he basically wants to undercut by using the powers of the Presidency in a particularly underhanded way).

Barack Obama, when he ran his campaign for state senator, had his opponents thrown off the ballots by challenging the signatures on their petitions to run. He cleared the ballot of all opponents.

He does not play fair -- and never has. That is his modus operandi. He learned everything he needed to know about politics in Cook County and he has brought its mores to Washington.
