In an April 15th story, "Bush proclaims belief in open government," Bush said
"I believe in open government," the president said. "I've always believed in open government."As usual, he was lying. Bush & Co. prefer to operate their presidency in secret: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11... you can find sources for days. And don't even get me started on the fact that he's appeared at fewer press conferences than any president since Taft. Wisely so, given his pathetic inability to communicate, his broad ignorance of anything not profitable to the Neocon agenda, and his sneering contempt for the press and the public. Besides, he probably gets fidgety while they are attaching the wires.
When he says he believes in open government, it is a sarcastic insult to us all. What he is really saying is, "Try to stop me, you worthless chumps."
