Obama: 'There has not been an administration that was tougher on making sure that lobbyists weren't participating in the administration than any administration that has come before us'


Ok. Right. If you keep saying it it will come true.

We will forget the special union deal.

Between Joe Wilson's "You lie!" and Sam Alito's "Not true!", it seems like Obama can't appear on a nationally televised speech to a joint session of Congress without being called out for his challenging relationship with the truth. In the words of Bob Kerrey, Bill Clinton was an "unusually good liar". Barack Obama is just a liar.

You can't make this chit up:



Tough Talk

President Obama put lobbyists on the political chopping block Wednesday night in his State of the Union speech: "We must take action on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue to end the outsized influence of lobbyists...that's why we've excluded lobbyists from policy-making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions."

But today, one day after that speech, the administration invited those same lobbyists to participate in a series of off-the-record conference calls with senior officials discussing topics like job creation, education, and even transparency.

One lobbyist told The Hill newspaper: "Bash lobbyists, then reach out to us. Bash lobbyists [while] I have received four Democratic invitations for fundraisers." The White House confirms lobbyists were invited but, "The call is private and invitation only. We don't exclude lobbyists but they are not only for lobbyists."

I, as an American voter am damn glad lobbyists have finally been put in their place.
