Barack Obama’s “Transparency Award” Goes Missing!

By John W. Lillpop

Sometimes “good” just happens. Call it serendipity, blessings from above, or just plain dumb luck.

Whatever, when “it” happens it is a wonder to behold.

Take the planned presentation of a “Transparency Award” to Barack Obama, the least open president since the late Richard M. Nixon.

Just moments before the awards ceremony was to commence, the whole mess was called off by the White House for “unspecified reasons.”

As reported, in part, at the reference:

“The White House postponed an event scheduled for Wednesday afternoon where President Obama was supposed to receive an award for a commitment to transparency due to unspecified “changes to the president’s schedule.”

The award was to be presented by organizers of the Freedom of Information Day conference in conjunction with “Sunshine Week” for the president’s “deep commitment to an open and transparent government—of, by, and for the people.”

Sunshine week? Any relation to the “summer of recovery” that was touted by the Obama-Biden tag team as the official end to the Obama recession?

Inquiring minds, i.e., everyone not employed by the leftist mainstream media, wants to know: What happened?

Possible explanations:

 Obama was too busy with his March Madness picks to get involved,

 The President decided to golf rather than accept another phony award for which he is undeserving,

 Obama was meeting with advisors to decide how an attack on Libya would impact his phony Nobel Peace Prize before deciding on an appropriate action.

All are possible, even probable.

Most improbable: Obama was smitten with a sense of humility and realized that yet another tarnished award would drag his approval ratings down even further.
