Orwellian Transparency.

President Obama received a "transparency" award...in secret. Members of the press were discouraged from attending.

Well, what do you expect when "many of the Obama administration's top open government initiatives are set to be turned off by May 31"?  Congress  plans to slash the Electric Gov Fund - from $34 million to $2 million, which will shut down President Obama's "transparency" projects and websites: Data.gov, USASpending.gov, PaymentAccuracy.gov, and five other similar sites.

Ironcially, these proposed cuts to e-gov are in the works, despite $3 billion, e-gov saved on IT projects, according to Federal Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra.

What's next? President Obama receives the Nobel Peace Prize? Oh, wait...
