“You need to get out more. Or maybe just get your news from more places than MSNBC.”

“I watch many different news shows and sometimes even that entertainment network Faux . But still would like the sources of your comment so that I can investigate for myself. Thanks.”

“How about this? American taxpayers lost more than a half-billion dollars in taxpayer-guaranteed loans in the Solyndra collapse. But this White House doesn’t want to produce its records on what looks suspiciously like an attempt to use taxpayer dollars to support the business interests of a key campaign fundraiser. Those who have nothing to hide, hide nothing.”

“There absolutely should be limits to transparency, hence read the above article, but that is not what we are talking about. Transparency is as much about what kind of information the administration releases as about how much. If we have no need for the information the administration releases but have great need for information the administration withholds, they can’t claim to be “transparent.””

“Are you saying that Obama is now making better use of the law by using it to prosecute whistleblowers? You asked for examples of the lack of transparency as promised and I gave you a few.”

“The obvious stonewalling in the Fast & Furious Case, frequent complaints that the administration ignores or does not comply with Freedom of Information Act requests, the fact that they've used the Espionage Act of 1917 an unprecedented number of times to prosecute whistleblowers, just to name a few. This from an administration that was supposed to set a new standard for transparency.”

“Obama's White House is steeped in secrecy. His call for transparency rings as hollow as his promise to close Guantanamo. From the beginning, his cabinet has been stocked with denizens from the swamp he promised to drain. He is no uniter, just a master politician supported by a media full of apologists willing to carry his water.”

“"And I fail to see how tolerating bigotry and hatred as merely another point of view furthers the cause of justice."

All I am saying is that sinking to the level of the likes of Bob Marshall & his ilk is counter-productive to furthering the cause justice.”

“I fail to see how justifying bad behavior serves to foster an atmosphere of tolerance and understanding. I am a conservative leaning independant who finds Bob Marshall's comments reprehensible. His behavior speaks for itself, but it does not reflect upon me in any way.”

“Have you read through this thread?”

anon004 on May 18, 2012 at 09:50:24

“Yes, and I see people upset at others denying their rights for no good reason.  Their anger is justified.  The hatred on the other side is based in bigotry and has no justification.  Not every side of an issue is equally valid.”

“Hat-e the bi-got-ry, love the bi-got? Would adopting that mantra get rid of any hate coming from the correct side of this issue? or would it require loving the bi-got-ry too?”
