    Please, try to be honest.
    If McCain had done this, you'd be among those howling the loudest.

    Re: Obama's lies about lobbyists: OK?

    Actually, scratch that, I'm sorry...

    He dedicated TWO ads at least to it:

    First

    Second

    Seems the Obama campaign said lobbyists in the white house was "more of the same". That the use of lobbyists showed you weren't really a "reformer". So much for a change in Politics as Usual.

    Why is this an issue? Its not just that he lied. Its counter to EVERYTHING his campaign was run on. It was ran on Hope. Hope for what? Hope for change...yet by Obama's own definition this isn't change, its more of the same. Hope for no more Politics as usual...yet by obama's own definition this isn't change, its more of the same. He ran that it was to clean up the image of government, yet already he's being at least dishonest....that's not change, its more of the same.

    The reason this is significant is because its a CLEAR example of his campaign being nothing but...well...Politics as Usual.

    You'd go "Meh, no biggy, lets see how they do?"
    You obviously don't read many of my posts. I don't think I've ever attacked a republican candidate on something like this. Again, its clear I don't belong in the partisan forum, so continue on with your "messiahs" and "partisan bigotry". I'm done.
