Barack Obama Less Transparent As President Than George W. Bush

Back in 2008, Barack Obama promised he would be the most transparent President ever.

In 2013, the Obama Administration went opaque:

– Set a new record for delays of requests from journalists for documents
– Set a new record for refusals to share information with the American public
– Set a new record for the number of legal justifications for refusing to share information with the American public

In 2013 the number of times the Obama Administration cited national security as an excuse for keeping secrets from the American people was more than 200% of what it was in Obama’s first year as President.

The federal government under Barack Obama is even less transparent than it was under George W. Bush.
