The Obama administration, siding with former President George W. Bush, is trying to kill a lawsuit that seeks to recover what could be millions of missing White House e-mails.
Two advocacy groups suing the Executive Office of the President say that large amounts of White House e-mail documenting Bush’s eight years in office may still be missing, and that the government must undertake an extensive recovery effort. They expressed disappointment that Obama’s Justice Department is continuing the Bush administration’s bid to get the lawsuits dismissed.~~~
“The new administration seems no more eager than the last” to deal with the issue, said Anne Weismann, chief counsel for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the other group that sued the EOP.
The Executive Office of the President includes the president’s immediate staff and many White House offices and agencies.
This comes on the heels of his agreement with Bush on terror detainee’s:
President Obama sided with the Bush administration Friday, saying detainees in Afghanistan have no constitutional rights.
Now, the question I have for our lefties, please explain why it is now okay for Obama to do what many of the left villified Bush over?
Can’t wait to hear the mental hoops they will jump through to explain this away.
Bush does it….bad. Obama does it….good.
Thy name is hypocrisy.
