Bush determined to hide visitor logs from public


President Bush: Right to know? The American public has no rights (Reuters Photo)

President George W. Bush, the most secretive President in history, will fight to keep White House visitor logs secret.

A decision to challenge a court ruling that says the logs are public record is "business as usual" for Bush, who believes the actions of his administration are above the law and not subject to public view.

Bush's modus operandi in such matters is to stonewall until time, or his term in office, runs out. It often works and even when it doesn't work, Bush simply ignores the will of the courts or the rule and law and does whatever he damn well please.

That's the Bush way and Bush has pretty much had things his way for the past seven years.

Few expect it to be any different this time around.

Reports The Associated Press:

    The Bush administration is challenging a court ruling that White House visitor logs are public documents, saying releasing the records would infringe on the separation of powers.

    White House documents are normally exempt from public records laws, but a federal judge ruled in December that Secret Service visitor logs must be released. The court sided with a liberal watchdog group that sought records showing visits by prominent religious conservatives to the White House and Vice President Dick Cheney's residence.

    The Bush administration appealed and lawyers were scheduled to argue the case Monday before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    Government lawyers argue the president and vice president must be able to receive visitors and solicit advice privately. They portrayed the request for Secret Service records as an end-around, saying those same logs maintained by the White House would never be considered public documents.

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington wants to use the Secret Service documents to show the influence religious conservatives have on the Bush administration. The government argues that proves the records are related to the White House, not to the workings of the Secret Service, and should not be released.

    "The prospect of each and every appointment record immediately becoming the subject of forced public disclosure would surely cast a chill over the ability of the president and vice president to collect information and advice," Justice Department lawyers wrote in court documents.

    CREW lawyers reject that argument. They say the documents shouldn't be considered White House records simply because a watchdog group is trying to find out what the White House is up to. The Secret Service created and controlled the documents, the lawyers said, so they should be public.

    Nearly two dozen news organizations, including The Associated Press, filed court documents supporting the release of the Secret Service logs.

So who exactly is it that ole Bushy-boy doesn't want people to know about? Jeff Gannon? Come on now, visitor logs should be publicly available. No excuses for secrecy. Just lends more credence to the known belief that he is using these 'off-board' visits to have people shifting policy/creating policy that should have none of their grubby little hands in the candy jar.

I understand Kissinger goes there regularly, doesn't he. But would Bush be worried about people knowing about that given that he asked Kissinger to head the 9/11 Commission?

what about...Bill Clinton..David Rockefeller maybe...umm...a bus load of gay porn stars...a cocaine dealer..members of the bin Laden family..?

Well I know that Clinton and Bush Sr. had child sex slaves...I wouldn't be surprised about Cheney being a rapist too, with his human-sized locker and all. I thought George Bush was gay...but maybe he's a twink too.

Actually, now that I think of it, they say that Gannon wasn't found to have signed the in and the out of the register many times. I don't think that Bush would actually go so far as to create any more proof against himself on this matter for underage children. I would think that he'd probably practice it somewhere else like a 'top-secret' army base or something. There'd be too many cameras on him at the whitehouse.
