Politics & Pop Culture from a homocon.

Do As I Say…


President Obama put lobbyists in the cross hairs during his State of the Union lecture earlier this week.

“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.”

How ironic is it, then, that less than 24 hours later, 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 transparency.

According to the White House, the calls are “private and invitation only.”
