Obama Has Already Appointed 17 Lobbyists, Even A Few Who Pay Their Taxes

3 02 2009

Thankfully,  English and Indian media are willing to tell us:

It is easy to project yourself as a clean politician after making your debut in South Side Chicago with buddies like Rahm Emanuel. US president Obama has appointed more than 17 lobbyists after talking big on anti-lobbyist Governance and rooting corruption out of the American Government.

Hotair.com shares my sentiments

Why do we have to go to the Times of India to hear how many exceptions to this rule Obama has invoked?  If the Bush administration had publicly imposed such a restriction on itself and then quietly ignored it, we’d hear endless editorials about Bush’s hypocrisy and the influence of the rich and powerful on his administration.  We heard exactly that when Dick Cheney assembled a group of advisors, without government positions or enforcement authority, to help him build an energy policy during the first term.  Some watchdog groups went to court to force Cheney to reveal their names so that they could make that exact point.

But Obama appointing lobbyist after lobbyist to government positions, with enforcement power, despite his promise not to do that at all?  Crickets chirp among the American media.  I guess they’ve outsourced their Truth-to-Power divisions to India.
