Laws don’t apply to him or his White House.
The White House, in a curiously timed move, is stripping a federal regulation that made a particular office subject to reporters’ records requests.
The rule change means the Freedom of Information Act will no longer apply to the White House Office of Administration. In turn, the policy will allow the Obama White House to reject records requests for that office, just as the last Bush White House did.
There’s that Democratic Morality, again. Someone else did it, therefor it’s OK to do it again.
And, just to drive the point home that Obama holds himself above the law, all it takes being a stroke of that pen of his:
In the notice to be published Tuesday, the White House said it was not allowing a 30-day public comment period, and so the rule will be final.
