Obama Doesn't Kiss and Tell

So Obama's all transparent now, supposedly. Apparently this saran wrap approach to government does not apply to special guests invited to the white house.

White House declines to disclose visits by health industry executives

Citing an argument used by the Bush administration, the Secret Service rejects a request from a watchdog group to list those who have visited the White House to discuss the healthcare overhaul.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington sent a letter to the Secret Service asking about visits from 18 executives representing health insurers, drug makers, doctors and other players in the debate. The group wants the material in order to gauge the influence of those executives in crafting a new healthcare policy.

La Times

Not only is he not saran wrap about these guests, he's invoking a Bushian rationalization about it?!?!?!
