    You know, I was about to respond to this sarcastically, saying "Well, once they get jobs in the white house, then they're not lobbyists anymore, right?!" Then I saw this:



    And I didn't really need to.

    Looks like Chicago and DC have lots in common now.

    I love it; first we ignore the fact that Obama lied. Then we speculate that it COULD have been worse with McCain. You just can't fabricate such hypocrisy people.

    Then to top it off there are other Liberal deniers who suggest that it is no big deal if these people "perform" their jobs. But it was OBAMA who claimed to his minions that there would be NO lobbyists in his administration to the cheers of all his empty headed supporters!!

    It is no surprise to me that he is continuing to go back on his word with lobbyists, and he will keep it up on other issues.
    Barry has a liberal agenda to fund..., lobbyists fund. None of this is going to jump start chit though. International abortionhood and condoms for the poor...OMG. What next , "The American Negroe College Fund" ?

    Condoms for the poor? Is Obama trying to kill off the poor?

    Uhhhhh...

    The Negro president is confusing himself with his own dark shadow of lies...

    Uhhhhh...

    Someone must organize a great peaceful street manifestation against Obama, so this nation and the world will witness that he is not the popular president anymore...he lied!
