"I have done more to take on lobbyists than any other candidate in this race....I don't take a dime of their money, and when I am President, they won't find a job in my White House."Interesting...
Did you know....?
Attorney General Eric Holder was a lobbyist for Covington and Burling?
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack was a lobbyist for the National Education Association?
Ron Klain, Chief of Staff to Joe Biden, was a lobbyist at O'Melveny & Myers?
Deputy Secretary of Interior David Hayes was a lobbyist at Lathan & Watkins?
So maybe I'm not the brightest crayon in the box or anything but don't most of these people work (at least the majority of their time) in the White House? I am trying to give the man the benefit of the doubt in thinking that he meant what he said literally. That is, nobody that actually works IN the White House would be lobbyists but I think it is probably safer to chalk this one up to another campaign lie.
Shocking.......(notice the sarcasm).
So.......did we REALLY end up with the better man?
I think my beautiful wife Jesica said it best this weekend.....
"maybe we should have voted for McCain."
