Obama: Cash for Clunkers is Totally Working Like Gangbusters, But I Won't Release the Data Proving It, Just Because

Carnak the Magnificent says:

(puts envelope to head)

"Transparency, accountability, unicorns."

(cuts open envelope, blows into it, takes out slip of paper and reads question written thereon)

"Name three things promised to us by Obama which are as mythical as Atlantis."

The Obama administration is refusing to release government records on its "cash for clunkers" rebate program that would substantiate — or undercut — claims of its success.

President Barack Obama wants $2 billion more to boost car sales, days after the first $1 billion was made available. Obama has promised greater transparency, but Transportation Department officials say they don't have time to turn over sales data provided by car dealers.

The limited information shows most buyers are not picking Ford, Chrysler or General Motors vehicles, and six of the top 10 vehicles purchased are Honda, Toyota and Hyundai. The Associated Press has sought release of the data since last week. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Sunday the government would release it.

Good for AP.
