ONDCP -- Selective Amnesia

ONDCP's website identifies as its most viewed blog post the link to President Obama's March 26, 2009 online "Open for Questions" Live Town Hall interview in which he mocks the millions of votes that he answer a question about marijuana legalization. Of course, ONDCP's link does not work! And, of course, after all the hoopla of how unprecedentedly "open" the new Administration was going to be, there were no more whitehouse.gov online town halls.

The role of "openness" has been taken up by the "private sector," most recently YouTube. But ONDCP provides no link to January 27, 2011 YouTube interview in which the most popular question was about drug legalization, and the President says drug legalization is "an entirely legitimate topic for debate."
