    The "transparent" White House refuses to release document surrounding the Solyndra loans forcing the House to issue subpoenas for the information. Believe it or not, it seems the White House was considering a bailout of Solyndra just days before they filed for bankruptcy.

    By a 14-9 party-line vote the Energy and Commerce Committee’s investigative subcommittee authorized issuing a subpoena for any White House documents related to Solyndra, which received renewable energy loan guarantees under President Obama’s stimulus program.

    Democrats said it was “unprecedented” to subpoena documents from the president’s executive office like this, but Republicans said they’ve run out of patience with White House “stalling.”

    “We simply cannot allow the executive branch at its highest levels to pick and choose what they will produce, or whether they will produce anything at all,” said Rep. Cliff Stearns, the Florida Republican who runs the investigative panel.

    Thursday’s subpoena came just a day after the Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee voted along party lines to authorize a subpoena for Homeland Security records related to illegal immigrants the department has declined to pursue deportation cases against.

    "My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

    Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use."


    If Obama was any more full of shit it would be leaking out of his big ears.
  3. Come on looney lefties and Odumbo apologists, you should have been trying to rationalize this by now. Your welfare checks depend on it.

    And, Obama is trying to get a "rule" put in place that will allow them to deny the existence of documents they don't want to be released under FIOA requests.
