Democrat Says Americans Have No Right to Know What’s Going on In Government
Because of people questioning Obama, Democrat Eleanor Holmes Norton says that none of us have any right to know what our government is doing. In a committee hearing she angrily claimed that people should just shut up and let her emperor do whatever he wants.
This woman is an ignoramus who doesn’t deserve to be in government….
Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional delegate for the District of Columbia, angrily sputtered during a congressional hearing Friday that the White House should not be held up to scrutiny, saying that there was no right to know what it was doing behind closed doors.
“You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Norton said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.
It was, to put mildly, a significant departure from the more traditional liberal stance that openness and transparency are must to prevent abuses of power by government officials. Instead the leading advocate for statehood for the District of Columbia literally argued that even the congressional committee charged with oversight shouldn’t be asking questions in the first place.
