After Promising Not To, Obama Appoints Lobbyists to Key Administration Positions
Hey, you stopped paying attention to the campaign once the vote was cast and Obama won, didn't you?
Well don't look now, but it looks like it took less than two weeks for business as usual to return to the White House and to DC. This is "change?"
President Obama promised during his campaign that lobbyists "won't find a job in my White House."Oops. Thought you voted for change, huh? The only thing that changed was the D's and R's. Washington, however, has not changed and will not change. Newsflash, I know.
So far, though, at least a dozen former lobbyists have found top jobs in his administration, according to an analysis done by Republican sources and corroborated by Politico.
Bet that just fills you up with a steaming cup of HOPE, doesn't it?
