Illustrating that a promise made is not necessarily a promise kept, this administration is again under fire for violating its own ethics pledges.
On the campaign trail, candidate Obama initially pledged not to hire former lobbyists. But once in office, that directive was clarified to mean that any lobbyists hired would not be given the opportunity to influence any decisions involving their former employers.
Now, that promise, too, has gone by the wayside with the disclosure that White House Deputy Chief Technology Officer Andrew McLaughlin has directly participated in formulating policies that would impact Google, where McLaughlin had formerly served as the head of Global Public Policy and Government Affairs. McLaughlin has been reprimanded for his exchange of e-mails with Google executives.

Obama’s ethics pledges,roaring LOL his words are useless as he is and his actions are dangerous.
Does anyone here really believe UH_bummer believes anything or is trustworthy with anything, I wouldn’t trust him to flush my toilet even if he complained it stunk..
That has a familiar ring to it when viewed in context.
"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
In George Orwell's Animal Farm the original commandments were :
1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy
2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
3. No animal shall wear clothes.
4. No animal shall sleep in a bed.
5. No animal shall drink alcohol.
6. No animal shall kill any other animal.
7. All animals are equal.
As the pigs become more human and begin to assume absolute power some commandments have to be clarified.
"No animal shall drink alcohol" having "to excess" appended to it.
"No animal shall sleep in a bed" with "with sheets, added to it.
Eventually the laws are replaced with "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others", and "Four legs good, two legs better!" as the pigs become more human.
Read "Animal Farm" and after digesting that message read "1984" for a glimpse into where it leads.
With hussein obama a promise is merely a statement of what he'll be breaking or going back on later (just with a lot less fanfare from the mainstream, state-run media).
