Here’s some more of Obama’s "real change"
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Believe as I say:
“I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over. I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists — and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president.”

— Barack Obama, Speech in Des Moines, IA, November 10, 2007
Not as I do:
Obama disclosed the 2006 request on a long list of earmark requests his campaign made public today. The $8 million was for something called a "High Explosive Air Burst Technology Program." The request led to $1.3 million in funding for the program. According to the campaign's earmark disclosure, the defense project was overseen by General Dynamics, one of the nation's largest military contractors. Obama's Illinois finance chairman, James S. Crown, serves on the company's board of directors and his family holds a sizable stake in the company.

Crown and his wife, Paula Crown, are members of Obama's National Finance Committee and have raised more than $200,000 for the Obama campaign, according to a list of fundraisers posted on Obama's campaign website.

"They (lobbyists) have not funded my campaign..." This, I take it, was a dig at Mccain...and...

"...they will not run my White House..." This I take it was a dig at Clinton...and...

"...they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president...." This, I take it, was a dig at...

Wait, aren’t lobbyists supposed to be the VOICE of the American People? Does he really intend to wipe out this particular incarnation of the Voice of the American People?

If not, then Barack must mean "corporate" lobbyists for a Foreign Power using the system to manipulate the choices and drown out the voices of the American People.

Is Barack saying that he knows of lobbyists that actually have the power to do this and that when he is President he will stop them?

Can he name two?

Stupid American Politicians: 200 years of politics and they still need a grandma-trashing, lobbyist-hating Johnnie-come-lately to tell them they’ve been had!

"What a wacko," Schaumburg, IL resident Patrick Morledge said. "And, of course, after telling us all about how he had the ability to magically fix everything, he went right back to asking for change. Typical."
