Hmm . . . makes me wonder what happened to the "most open administration" President Obama talked about?

I am forbidden from deleting ANY e-mails at work. It seems our government should be required to do the same.

Even after blatantly breaking many campaign promises, people still want Obama as president. It makes me wonder where everyone's priorities are nowadays.

Citing David Vitter R-Louisiana as a source of honest behavior, co-opts the entire transparency argument for repubs.

I'm still a person and I didn't want Obama re-elected.

So much for "transparency", huh? This is how Obamacare was passed, by the way, in a dark smoke-filled room.

But it's okay when the GOP controlled Utah legislature tries as hard and sneakily as they can to hide all their electronic communications in a dark back room?

Makes me think there is some kind of double standard.

Besides, who is it who claims there are hidden White House emails?

More smoke screens from the rabid right.

I would guess people realized that, bad as Obama is, Romney would have been even worse. I didn't want either of them, and I didn't vote for either of them. That's why I wrote in Jon Huntsman, Jr. He was the only decent candidate in the 2012 campaign field, and about the only candidate who could have defeated Obama. Sadly the Republicans rejected him -- I guess he was too sane and moderate for them. The country is worse off as a result.

One thing you can be sure of is that the republicans will never let important things like the financial cliff we are approaching get in the way of playing politics. This is much ado about nothing. Most Americans would rather see congress focus on important things, you know the deficit, jobs, the impending tax increases etc.

I just am so delighted when the left defends bad character by reference to bad character of the right, "But it's okay when the GOP controlled Utah legislature tries as hard and sneakily as they can to hide all their electronic communications in a dark back room?" No it was not Okay. Remember a Republican majority held state put an end to it. It certainly was not the democrat minority of the state that stopped it. So if the democrats are so against such behavior, why do they defend the Obama administration?

Ignore the man behind the curtain, all hail Oz.

jsf,

In the Utah legislature the democrats are irrelevant they are almost extinct. If we give the republicans a couple of more redistricting opportunities they will be completely extinct. The attempt to conceal emails came from the republicans in the Utah legislature, and only after the news media got involved did the republicans suddenly see the light and become "open and transparent".

Only in Utah would someone blame the democrats for something they had nothing to do with, and give the republicans credit for solving a problem they created. Please D does not stand for devil and R does not stand for righteous. Lets try and be a little bit honest and fair.

What did the Utah GOP do in secret meetings? From what I can tell, you can request information from their meetings under the GRAMMA(?) laws.

Are they secret because you were not invited, and don't want to request any information?

Fred44 thanks for getting on board and demanding "open and transparent" government from the Obama Administration.

Maybe:

* the rich
* your neighbor
* your boss
* your uncle
* your auntie
* the mayor
* the poor?

can all pay a little more.

What kind of president would go around telling people to give more of their hard earned money, because government can't cut back on spending. No amount of taxes will fix this mess.

Thank you Obama for your great ideas of fixing the economy.

Sorry Charlie!

So in other words we get to endure one wild conspiracy theory after another for the next four years. How many millions of dollars will republicans waist of our money this time around?
