    What else is to be expected? They are sure enough that the American Public doesn't care about anything but talking points that they no longer care if the strings on the puppets are obvious.

    I remember Obama promising no lobbyists in his administration... last time I checked he had over 40... but I haven't read anything from the GOP making such a promise.

    Instead of acting in a partisan manner, why not criticize the Republicans? I can easily criticize Obama for having lobbyists in his administration, better question is whether you can stop defending the Republicans for having lobbyists.

    No, most Republicans are proud to say that their leaders are puppets to corperations. After all, they are the party of corperate statism.

    Toss him. I'm so sick of this. Blah, blah, blah 'we hear you, the people' blah, blah, blah when really it's just the s.o.s.

    She made it clear that her critcism was of Obama promising no lobbyists yet he has over 40...Boehner never promised no lobbyists.

    I criticize people when criticism is warranted. Did he promise not to employ lobbyists or not? If not, then there is no valid reason to criticize. Obama, on the other hand, clearly and emphatically promised not to allow lobbyists in his administration.

    I agree....the GOP admits it.

    The dems promise you otherwise and are anyway. In other words, the GOP admits it, the DEMS lie about it.

    Both are wrong.....but one is unethical about it as well.

    So yes, I agree.
