Lobbyist Lies

The RNC has released a good clarification of Barack's stance on lobbyists, putting into perspective the misleading nature of his many PR manipulations. Barack says:
"We will not take a dime from Washington lobbyists or special interest
PACS - we're going to change how Washington works. They will not fund my party,
they will not run our White House, and they will not drown out the voice of the
American people when I am president of the United States of America."

Barack has even required the DNC to follow his policy now that he's the man in charge of the moonbat party. But is this restriction real, or is it Memorex?
The Lobbyist Ban At The DNC Does Not Apply To Former Lobbyists, Unregistered
Lobbying Firm Partners, Or State Lobbyists. "Sen. Barack Obama's decision to
tell the Democratic National Committee to stop taking money from lobbyists isn't
likely to dent fundraising efforts because the policy only applies to current
federal lobbyists, experts say. The presumptive Democratic presidential
nominee's decree doesn't rule out contributions from past lobbyists,
unregistered lobbying firm partners or statehouse lobbyists." (Jim McElhatton,
"Obama Decree On Funding Limited To Current Lobbyists," The Washington Times,
6/6/08)

Is Barack's approach a start? Sure. Is it more of a political trick than a meaningful shift in how money impacts politics? Sure. Will he use it to score undeserved political credit by conning voters into thinking that he really is pushing a new kind of politics? Sure.
