President Obama Helps Bush, Tries to Get Email Lawsuit Dismissed

February 22, 2009

 Bush ObamaThere are two advocacy groups who are suing the Office of the President, they are trying to recover the lost emails of President Bush. President Bush has been fighting this lawsuit and yesterday President Obama’s administration sided with President Bush.

 President Obama wants the lawsuit thrown out also. Needless to say, this isn’t going over very well with the advocacy groups and I would guess with the far left who are still hoping that President Bush will be impeached.

 This decision has some on the left up in arms over the fact that Obama promised a more transparent administration and this seems to violate that promise.

Tom Blanton, director of the National Security Archive, noted that President Barack Obama on his first full day in office called for greater transparency in government.

The Justice Department “apparently never got the message” from Obama, Blanton said.

 Did anyone really believe that Obama would bring transparency to government? Did anyone really believe that he would change the culture of Washington?

 The question that remains unanswered is why is he siding with the former president on this issue? There was no explanation given by the president.

 If I had to guess, and I am going to, I would say that he understands there is executive privilege and he is unwilling to violate that privilege. Someday he will leave office and he won’t want any potential lawsuits against his administration to be pursued.

    Obama realizes that if he goofs up, then HIS emails could be used to nail him for any and all misdeeds.

    It’s not benevolence – it’s self-preservation.

      You hit the nail on the head there. He knows if he were to pursue these emails than the same would probably happen to him when his presidency is over. He doesn’t want that.

    Obama– he’s not just something, he’s something else.

      You’ve got that right!

    Or perhaps the reason is much simpler. NAU (North American Union). Both men may call it different things but in the end, we end up with a completely different country.

      That is an angle I hadn’t thought of. Interesting.
