The POT(US) Calling the Kettle “Secretive”

Have you noticed how President Obama and his campaign are trying to get voters to dislike Mitt Romney? They accuse him of being a rich, greedy, unscrupulous businessman; of having a Swiss bank account; of pioneering the outsourcing of jobs; of being a rich “fat cat” in cahoots with Wall Street; et cetera.

Needless to say this is not only a shameful approach but an immoral one – slandering a moral, decent, hard working, religious, businessman and family man.

Romney is even accused of being too secretive about his earnings, past earnings, business dealings, et cetera. Imagine – Obama accusing Romney of being secretive! Could anything be more hypocritical?

Obama is without question the most secretive president in history. He hasn’t produced a valid birth certificate, college grades, Illinois voting records, an explanation of how he financed his education at Punahou School, Occidental College, Columbia University, or Harvard Law School (1988–1991), or how he financed his extended trips to Kenya, Africa, the Middle East, etc., (before his presidency.)

Most of O’s private relationships are secret. Even his relationship with his mentor, Communist Frank Marshall Davis, was kept secret in O’s book, Dreams From My Father.

One of the strangest Obama mysteries is how O ended up with a Connecticut Social Security Number belonging to a deceased Connecticut resident. O never lived in Connecticut.

Also we do not know who wrote O’s book, Dreams From My Father. Clearly, he didn’t write it. Who did? His neighbor, Bill Ayers – an admitted American terrorist and an English professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago? O claims he hardly knew Ayers, even though Ayers kicked off O’s political campaign in his Chicago living room.

No explanations have been forthcoming from this most secretive politician? Yet, this bold, deceptive president accuses Romney of being too secretive.

You may recall in 2008, O promised to have the most open presidency and administration in history. Yet, today, he uses (presidential) executive privilege to cover-up the misdeeds of his attorney general (and perhaps himself) — and to withhold information subpoenaed by the House of Representatives.

Clearly, Obama is the most secretive president in history–and the Great Deceiver to boot!
