The White House has taken down online White House visitor logs and blamed Congress.

The logs, which were posted beginning in December 2009 “as part of President Obama’s commitment to government transparency,” are the latest victims of a partial government shutdown that has temporarily idled 17 percent of the federal workforce.

“Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, the information on this web site may not be up to date. Some submissions may not be processed, and we may not be able to respond to your inquiries,” reads the index page for the visitor logs.
------
It is unclear how much money it costs to keep the visitor database up on the site, but the Obama White House has a history of overspending for web services. The Daily Caller reported today that taxpayers spent $634 million to build its non-functioning Healthcare.gov exchange for Obamacare.
------
This is also one of many cases in which the shutdown has been cited as a reason to disappear information that is potentially embarrassing to the administration. The Bureau of Labor Statistics quickly deep-sixed its September unemployment statistics as other employment proxies indicated the work situation has worsened once again. The Department of Agriculture has buried its September food stamps statistics which are also expected to show increased poverty, dependency and economic regression under Obama.

The White House is currently embroiled in a growing scandal following revelations Wednesday that senior White House officials exchanged confidential taxpayer information on groups with IRS officials at the center of the IRS conservative targeting scandal.

The White House visitor logs include records of numerous White House meetings between IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram and White House official Jeanne Lambrew, who exchanged confidential taxpayer information in emails sent to one another.

They exert so much effort - and thus spend so much money - taking away stuff that already exists and then blaming it on the so-called shutdown!

That is the result of hatred, and exacting revenge for real or imagined reasons. This administration reminds me of divorcing couples, where one side is consumed by hatred, jealousy, and revenge, that s/he ends up spending all his time and money to create constant chaos. And, the violator blames the spouse for his/her actions.

The "Spite House" strikes again.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Perpetual victims always act that way...

And then one takes a chain saw to the house and smugly delights in the other's horror.

Just the pigeon strutting around and crapping on the board...
