Obama says there is “nothing secret” about his secret trade deal


The Hill reports:

Obama: ‘Nothing secret’ about Pacific trade deal

May 28, 2015

President Obama took time out of an impromptu Twitter Q&A on climate change Thursday to defend a sweeping Pacific trade agreement that’s one of his top second-term priorities.

Obama wrote that there is “nothing secret” about the deal, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, rebutting a criticism frequently made by liberal opponents of the deal.

He made the statement in response to a question about making the text of the deal available.

Meanwhile, Politico reports:

Extreme secrecy eroding support for Obama’s trade pact

May 4, 2015

If you want to hear the details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal the Obama administration is hoping to pass, you’ve got to be a member of Congress, and you’ve got to go to classified briefings and leave your staff and cellphone at the door.

If you’re a member who wants to read the text, you’ve got to go to a room in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center and be handed it one section at a time, watched over as you read, and forced to hand over any notes you make before leaving.

And no matter what, you can’t discuss the details of what you’ve read.

Why does Obama think he can get away with such an obvious lie?

    I think Obama believes he is the President of the Secret Garden and everyone wears Rose Colored Glasses like him.

    Obama feels that he can do things behind closed doors and it is still top secret

      He is far out of that secret closet door, that Boris and Natasha do not want or can peddle his or Michelle’s outed secrets like Bruce did.

        Sorry for all the delays but wifi doesn’t work that great in the hospital.
        Been there for a damned week. Heart attack AND a-fib. Talk about double wammies…bad part about it OBAMACARE IS NOT PAYING FOR ONE OF THE STINTS.

        But as for the (excuse the paraphrase) son of a whore Obama. I have a feeling he is going to do a hell of a lot of more damage to the people and America “behind closed doors” before his term is up. Remember my dear friend he has 19 months to go and knowing him the way we all know him HE CAN DO THE DAMAGE.
        I would not put it past him to change the laws regarding re-elections and term limits.

    Surely you jest when you ask, “Why does Obama think he can get away with such an obvious lie?” As far as I can tell, he has been lying to anybody and everybody his whole life. Why would this issue be any different? Dan has compiled a very long and detailed list of many of his lies, but nothing has stopped Ohbongo from lying. The guy is a Sociopathic Liar…..it’s just a way of life for him. So, why does he do it? Well, he does it because he can and because he has gotten away with all these years. It’s simple…..it works. Why not do what works for you?

      I was being serious. But those are great points that you make. I can’t argue against anything that you said.
