>>Obama’s love affair with lobbyists

Posted on: April 6, 2010

Just in case you think that Obama has kept his word about  getting lobbyist out of  government is this from the Office of Government Ethics:

According to a new report by the Office of Government Ethics, two dozen of President Obama’s political appointees worked as registered lobbyists during the two years prior to joining the administration, and 22 appointees received waivers that allowed them to participate in matters in which their former employers or clients had an interest.

Of course you have to understand that he owed the firms who employed these people his first loyalty since they contributed to his campaign so nicely.  BB
