  • Another promise broken....

    In a series of broken promise, phony campaign, we bring you yet another promise that Mr. Obama has broken. Just wait and watch more to come....

    Dem readers who conveniently forget his promises that are broken, here I am listing FYI....1) Public Finance Campaign, 2) Not paying campaign workers as promised 3) Not keeping the promise of keeping out lobbyists in his administration (see article below).

    <span class="ev_code_RED">If you voted for Obama, REPENT your vote</span>

    (CNN) -- I want you to hear something President-elect Barack Obama said just about a year ago:

    "I am running to tell the lobbyists in Washington that their days of setting the agenda are over. They have not funded my campaign. They won't work in my White House."

    Just this weekend The New York times published a list of names -- a rather long list of names of people -- who are working on Obama's transition team or who have accepted jobs in his White House who are either former lobbyists or who have close ties to lobbyists.

    The Times reports that some of those people were lobbying as recently as this year.

    Now, the Obama team is quick to point out that their rules and restrictions on lobbying ties are far stricter than any previous administration.

    And the Obama folks concede that eliminating anyone in Washington who had ever lobbied Congress or who has a family member who lobbied Congress would be foolish.

    And it's true, you could argue the reality of Washington and our government is that lobbyists are often the most informed people on a given issue.

    But we certainly never heard Obama articulate it quite that way when he was candidate Obama. What he said then was:

    "That's what happens when lobbyists set the agenda and that's why they won't drown out your voices anymore when I am president of the United States of America."

    And that is a promise that he may already be struggling to keep.
