    EXCLUSIVE: Democratic donors rewarded with W.H. perks

    Hope.
    Change.
    Unity.
    Most ethical administration... yada, yada, yada...

    TILT.

    High-dollar fundraisers have been promised access to senior White House officials in exchange for pledges to donate $30,400 personally or to bundle $300,000 in contributions ahead of the 2010 midterm elections, according to internal Democratic National Committee documents obtained by The Washington Times.

    "This administration has across the board set the toughest ethics standards in history. As a result, we have reduced special-interest influence over the policymaking process to promote merit-based decision-making," he (Dan Pfeiffer, deputy White House communications director) added.

    But Mr. Gibbs was less forthcoming when asked about the DNC documents that promise access to senior members of the Obama administration.

    There is evidence of purported illegalities.

    What is illegal about donors being allowed to meet officials? If this story is real, why did you have to go to Rev. Moon's newspaper to find it?

    Re: EXCLUSIVE: Democratic donors rewarded with W.H. perks

    Okay so what Obama is selling access and renting out the Lincoln Bedroom the same as Bush did what's the big deal. I remember pictures of Bush and some Chinese or Taiwanese guy of questionable character taken at at a White House event and the Dims (no spell error) going ape shiite or it. 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.
