Obama softens ban on hiring lobbyists - The Boston Globe
Liberal heads are gonna' esplode when Obama doesn't keep most of his promises. Like ending the Iraq war.
It'll be fun to watch.
Obama softens ban on hiring lobbyists..
He's probably finding it next to impossible to find people in who are qualified for these jobs who aren't or haven't been lobbyists.
I mean I guess he could go to Walmart and get a greeter to be on his staff
This isn't a big promise IMO. It's more symbolic than anything since it doesn't effect Americans in their everyday lives.
But the direction is interesting:
Intelligence Policy to Stay Largely Intact - WSJ.com
A politician told a lie to get elected
i think i'm gonna cry.....
The liberals are going to much too busy and must be very creative over the next four years explaining all this stuff away. They can do it though. It just takes team effort.
Sounds like he is working within the spirit of his campaign pledge to me...
I think it highly unlikely that Obama or any other POL could completely eliminate hiring people in the know who weren't EVER lobbyists.
What do you folks think most experts do when they're not working directly for the government?
They're working for organizations and industries in some capacity or the other, which must deal with the government.
If they're ever testified before a government committee or fact finding group, they're lobbyists.
