Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Alittle perspective here...and very little at that.
The President has made it clear that the logs for visitors to the White House would be made public and that such visits would include those of his Administration. To be fair, he is skirting his own rule by allowing White House aides to meet with lobbyist off-site. To that, he should make all such meetings public no matter where they occur to avoid any appearance of duplicity.
This article as first reported by Politico.com should help shed alittle light on things. Although it doesn't appear that the majority of lobbyist who have visited w/White House aides in this fashion are upset about it, meeting in this fashion does give a negative appearance. For this reason, IMO all records of visitation by lobbyist should be made public.

Lobbyists are useless individuals who are easily one of the biggest problems this country faces today. Couple that with allowing corporations to donate as much as they want to campaigns and I don't see how we plan to keep business from running our government. It's not good, me thinks.
