"How I Miss the Transparency and Openness of the Bush Administration"

Thank to John Caruso at Distant Ocean for pointing out something I noticed last week.

I was trying to find a quote from Obama's Prague speech for my Black Agenda Report column, Phony Nuclear Disarmament. I went first to the White House website, which in the Bush days was easy to navigate.

To make a long story short, I had to do some creative googling because the White House site didn't have a link to the president's most recent speech. Go figure.

I wouldn't tell a lie, even if I thought it would make Obama look bad, so please take my word for it when I say that the Bush administration made it much, much easier to find out what the president was saying.
