The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
..there seems to me like there is substantially larger difference between the former CEO of Halliburton being part (and by that I mean second in command) of the same administration that gave Halliburton billion dollar contracts...
And a guy who is :
Deputy health and human services secretary nominee
On another note though :
.....what exactly is a : Deputy Health and Human Services Secretary?
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
BTW - there is no Cheney exception. That is, if you want to believe that Cheney's receipt of deferred compensation constituted a conflict of interest, well, you're free to do so, but I'd like to invite you back to reality.
There's definitely lobbyists in Bush's camp that you could've used to use an honest comparison. Instead, you choose Dick Cheney whose not a good example because its a completely different TYPE of position. This makes me wonder why you didn't go for an actual legitimate analogy. And, even if you had...so what? Why is it okay for people to have no problem with Obama doing something (having lobbyists AND seemingly purposefully breaking a campaign promise and/or lieing) that they had a problem with Bush doing it?

My opponent is a liar, and he can not be trusted
This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
I think we all realize that when non-elected officials are not in office, they often work as lobbyists. That doesn't mean they sell their soul to K street, and it certainly doesn't brand the Obama administration as a "miserable failure"

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
