    Obama team defends lobbyist meetings -- and their location

    WOO HOO!!! YAY for transparency!


    Obama team defends lobbyist meetings -- and their location - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    The Obama administration is defending itself against talk that aides meet with lobbyists beyond the White House gates in order to avoid public disclosure....

    Politico reported that White House aides have been meeting with lobbyists at a government-owned townhouse on Jackson Place, visits that do not generate the entry logs that are kept at the White House complex...

    One unnamed lobbyist told Politico about the Jackson Place get-togethers: "Without question, I think that there's a lot of concern about being seen meeting with the same lobbyists or particular lobbyists over and over again."...
    Will they start releasing names of off-campus meetings?

    "I'm not aware, you know, what policies might be instituted in the future," Carney said....
    "You can't have a policy for the front door of the White House and then sneak people in through a back door," said Common Cause president Bob Edgar. "We call on the administration to disclose all meetings with lobbyists, not just with those who come in the main entrance."

    I think it is high time that "WE THE PEOPLE" force the issue and put an end to all lobbying except by citizens from the district of the Elected Official being lobbied.

    It would be nice for "WE THE PEOPLE" to have more say in the way our Government is doing.

    This would surely reduce corruption or at least slow it down.

    In 2007 there were over 17,000 federal lobbyists based in Washington, DC, and that is over 17.000 too damn many.

    We're supposed to just trust The Messiah, because he knows what's best for us. I mean, he's The Messiah. He's above question and doubt.

    You cats need to get with the program.

    I wish Americans could have more authentic criticism.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Why? I assume you don't realize that President Jug Ears hisownself did not qualify his phony mantra based on what the pimps were lobbying for.

    Thank me for the education.

    I'd reply directly if I could follow, though you likely make sense to you. I'll thank my college in the meanwhile. For all we know they weren't lobbying.
    You can speculate the worst... I'll speculate irrelevance if its true at all.
