Most Ethical Administration Evah Waives Ethics Rules… AGAIN!

I am fondly recalling those hoary days on the campaign trail when Mr. Obama was all about "transparency," and when he promised to have the "strictest ethics rules" of any president evah! Seemingly hours later the president's office began to waive hose "strictest" rules to allow his favorite lobbyists and lawyers to take up residence in his administration. By Feb. 2, for instance, a dozen high profile lobbyists had already had those "strict" rules waived for them to join the administration. And by May of 2009, Obama had already lifted his so-called ban on lobbyists joining his administration. And this month, over a year into his term, he's still waiving those "rules" for his pals.

By April of 2010 Obama had waived those rules so many times that dozens and dozens of lobbyists, those same lobbyists he attacked endlessly during the campaign, left their lobbying firms to come and work for the big money in Obama's administration. And this is not to mention that lobbyists have been found to be making a killing in Obama's Washington especially the army of lobbyists that streamed to D.C. to make cash off the healthcare issue. Even in August Obama was still waiving his "strictest ethics rules" to allow his favorite folks into his administration.

Obama is a dedicated socialist, forever brazonly telling the fools what they want to hear.

And not having even the slightest sincerity.
