    Another Obama nomineee who is qualified for nothing but his experience in cover-ups.

    As a former lobbyist, Obama's choice for national security adviser fought off new regulations - latimes.com

    Fox and the henhouse come to mind. Hope and Change at its finest. Didn't Obama campaign that he would not employ lobbyists?

    Just a point of clarification, while the National Security Advisor is sometimes referred to as "NSA", it shouldn't be confused with the National Security Agency. Donilon is serving in a White House cabinet position and NOT as the head of the National Security Agency. General Keith Alexander is the DIRNSA.

    Interestingly, that was my first thought too. About a year ago, I did a count up of how many lobbyists were in the Obama Administration. I found 43. Also, fascinating to see where those lobbyists were from - the very financial institutions that Democrats howled at for their corporate greed.

    New boss.... same as the old boss.
