C-SPAN Calls Obama’s Transparency Bluff

Robert GibbsWASHINGTON: Robert Gibbs yesterday refused to answer the White House press corps’ questions regarding C-SPAN’s request to broadcast meetings between Democrats as they hammer out their wildly unpopular healthcare bill. On December 30th Brian Lamb, CEO of C-SPAN requested from House and Senate leadership access to their negotiations (his letter here).

The NIP has drawn some heat for yesterday’s comment in our post thanking Joe Wilson for his honesty. In it we opined regarding Nancy Pelosi’s deteriorating mental health. We supposed she may be suffering from the onset of senility because she apparently had forgotten how rude Congress was previously to George W. Bush. We stand by our analysis, because how else can you explain her statement yesterday when describing the healthcare bill, “There has never been a more open process for any legislation”? We can’t just chalk it up to simple prevarication, because surely any sane person wouldn’t think that anyone in America would swallow such nonsense.

Robert Gibbs appears to be catching some of the same disease as you can see in the following video. He completely sidesteps questions from the press requesting that Obama honor his commitment and open healthcare negotiations to C-SPAN. We think though that in this case Mr. Gibbs still has his faculties. His evasion underscores the basic lie that was told to the American people during the Obama campaign. He might as well have said, “It’s our lie, and we’re standing by it.

Is there anyone in America who doesn’t remember candidate Obama’s assurance that this administration would be the most open administration in history? If you find such a person send them to this link to let them refresh their memory.
