    In reaction:
    OMG....big political donors getting special treatment from the politicians they donated to!!!!! Holy crap, that's never happened before!

    While I do think there really could be a problem here; this one isn't isolated to just Obama.

But then there was this outrage from the lefties talking about how it was pure denigration of the office because of the questionable practice of using the peoples House as a fund raising tool, and how it just proved Bush was a low life. Or words to that effect. I also remember hearing a great deal or rhetoric from the Dims about openness in government and access to information about pending legislation before any votes.
    Wow come to think of it there seems to be something about to the stories of there not being a dimes worth of difference between the two major parties after all. Could it be that all the talk of no more possibility of corruption and a new refreshing openness and honesty in Government from Obama, Pelosi, and Reid was just another campaign ploy from the left? Let's take a quick trip down memory lane to before the election to see if Obama was doing anything misleading. You won't have to read so just sit back and relax for a minute and watch and listen. Obama Caught Again Lies After Lies - Google Videos
    Golly I was taken in before the election. And here I thought Obama and all other Deities were infallible and therefore absolutely trustworthy at all times. In fact worthy of our praise and adoration.
    Is it possible that in my excitement I have been beguiled into believing in a false Messiah like this guy; Obama Townhall meeting in fort myers florida Julio Osegueda - Google Videos

    No I was never fooled by the massive lies from Obama, Pelosi, Reid or any of the massive the Dims spew forth on a daily basis. It seems ingrained in them to regurgitate BS and openly operate with double standards. They count on you being too stupid to notice or having a short memory.
    This was despicable when Bush did it and there has been no change because Obama is to some the epitome of the second coming.
    In point of fact it was clinton who rented out the lincoln bedroom. I do wish you democrats could keep your scandal information correct.

    ....."The American people deserve to know that their presidency is not for sale, the Lincoln Bedroom is not for rent," Edwards said, invoking the scandal that erupted when it was discovered the Clintons had let campaign donors stay in the Lincoln bedroom of the White House during the 1990s......

    It happened under Bush, it happened under Clinton, and it's happening under Obama.

    This is relevant not because it's some brand new policy that Obama has developed, but because it doesn't comport with Obama's image as a political reformer who is free from these influences.

    The fact is that Obama is not a new breed of politician - he's a politician. I don't fault him for that, but do fault him for pretending to be something that he's not in order to convince gullible people to vote for him.
