He campaigned for president promising to usher in an era of transparency in government. That promise stands next to you “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” in this president's Hall of Shame.

A worst example his duplicity: The way this president’s and his administration have responded to the roster of revelations that have come from the leaks of documents defining the surveillance activities of the National Security Agency (NSA).

Not only has the president been called out on his support of secrecy at home, but leaders around the globe have turned on him, as well, after learning that American snoops have been monitoring their phone calls for years.

Then there is the bugging of the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and other organizations by none other than the NSA. This is germane to the secrecy analysis because the NSA is part of the Executive Branch and the head of that branch is THE PRESIDENT.

Forces even the most shameless excuse-making presidential supporter to think...

A key tenet of the Obama administration’s code of silence seems to require the thickest walls be built around the sectors of government that can take advantage of the cover to do the most damage to liberty... This should be a huge red flag prompting a firestorm of outcrying from both the general mass of citizens as well as the news media, which is supposed to serve as the watchdog and vanguard for the people against criminal govt activities for the people...

This administration, which likes to pretend it’s the most transparent in history, is actually one of the most secretive, and proves as another default on its promises of "real change" for the American people and nation. That it still has its supporters and defenders flies in the face basic common sense and national dignity.

Beyond the violations of the Fourth Amendment evident in the NSA’s dragnet surveillance turning citizens into suspects, another of the numerous worst examples is: the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Despite this president's contrary statements, every round of TPP negotiations are conducted in secret and even the content of the draft agreement itself would be completely unknown were it not for a WikiLeaks project that resulted in the publication of a chapter on intellectual property. THIS IS A pact that would, if accepted by Congress, devastatingly impact the lives, liberties, and futures of the very Americans in whose name this administration is brokering this raw deal.

Perhaps the most deadly deception perpetrated by this secrecy-loving president is the number of innocent civilians who have been killed by missiles fired from U.S. drones. Until recently, in fact, this administration denied the drone war was even being waged. Now, even though he admits to targeting “militants” using the remote control weapons, this American president refuses to comment on how many civilians have been blown up in the process. YET HE ROUTINELY GETS NOMINATED AND RECOMMENDED for various peace and humanitarian awards and recognitions as if he were the reincarnation of Mother Theresa herself...

Of course, there is now the Affordable Care Act. After the roll-out derailed, amazingly press reports revealed that the president had to know there were serious problems with his hallmark legislation and also knew that Americans would not be able to keep their doctor. A CBS News report about the weekly GOP address that Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) gave on November 16 on the president’s broken promise noted:
“Millions of Americans are coming to realize that those are your (the president's) tire tracks on their canceled policies,” Johnson said to the president, accusing him and his Democratic allies in Congress of perpetrating “political fraud” to aid their political goals.
“Consumer fraud this massive in the private sector could — and should — bear serious legal ramifications,” Johnson said.“For [this president], however, it helped secure enough votes to pass [the Affordable Care Act] and win re-election.”
