That seems kinda weird. How are these other people's tax problems a reflection on Obama's honesty? Anyway, there's no evidence that Obama's credibility is ruined, that I've seen or heard of.
The point of these web sites and other transparency measures isn't really about "the rubes" - the real effect will be to allow bloggers, activists, watchdog groups and issue groups, and others, much easier cheaper access to the sources for their research. Obama's fairly long history as a legislator shows that he believes this makes government work better, because people find things and publicize them, that would otherwise have remained obscure.
