Transparency in the Obama Administration equates to run around

We await whatever response that the White House will give, because even though the major media has given up on what should have been a simple matter, we believe that if our Government cannot be transparent and open enough to tell us something so trivial then it certainly is avoiding letting the public know about matters far more grave that no one has thought to ask about yet.

Putting WH Press Secretary Earnest claim of “most transparent” to the test

We decided to take up Secretary Earnest on his claim that this Administration is trying to be the “most transparent” in history and ask our question about the cots of a round of golf for President Obama again – with a few more specifics to see if that would help. We will provide, verbatim as always, any and all responses from the OMB as we receive them.

OMB apparently believes Pres. Obama golf rounds are for free

We do not question the need of the President to enjoy time away from the stress of running Government. The only question asked is the cost that taxpayers are covering. There apparently does not exist a single record of the cost for President Obama, or President Bush for that matter, playing golf. No receipts, no records of hourly wages for staff, no cost of gasoline for transportation, no cost of guests like Tiger Woods. That is incomprehensible.

Why won’t the White House answer the question?

Jonathan Karl of ABC News asked how much does a round of golf for President Obama cost? Karen Holliday of the GAO says ask the OMB. Dionne Hardy of the OMB has yet to reply. If the Government is stonewalling a response on a simple matter like this, what else is the Government unwilling to disclose – especially from the “most” transparent Presidency “ever”?
