The Washington Post On Obama’s Lobbyist Lies
From the Washington Post:
The [White House] visitor logs for Jan. 17 — one of the most recent days available — show that the lobbying industry Obama has vowed to constrain is a regular presence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The records also suggest that lobbyists with personal connections to the White House enjoy the easiest access.
A regular presence, eh? Snip.
The White House visitor records make it clear that Obama’s senior officials are granting that access to some of K Street’s most influential representatives. In many cases, those lobbyists have long-standing connections to the president or his aides. Republican lobbyists coming to visit are rare, while Democratic lobbyists are common, whether they are representing corporate clients or liberal causes.
The President’s promise to ‘change the culture of Washington’ is a joke. Actually, maybe he has changed it: he’s made it worse. That’s what happens when we have to suffer under the most inexperienced, inept, unexplainable, partisan grifter to sit in the Executive Office.
Are we shocked to discover this self-evident truth? No.
Are we shocked to see it in the Washington Post? Yes.
November 2008: America fooled once, shame on Obama. November 2012: if America is fooled a second time, shame on us.
