I have to say when I saw this headline from Political, I fully expected it to be a piece about the McCain campaign. You know, something where McCain tells the media that the current and former lobbyists working with his campaign are all “people too.” But it’s not about John McCain… No… It’s about the other candidate that doesn’t seem to want to release “a list of former lobbyists working for the campaign.” Watch:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucJKTRkIbW0
Isn’t it a double standard to call out your opponents (on both sides of the aisle) for their relationships with lobbyists and then not give full disclosure on yours? No wonder some Democrats and Independents leaning Dems are having a hard time with supporting him.
If lobbyists are people too, then voters should have the right to know just who those people are and what they lobby for. Just a thought… as we near the end of the primaries. I mean after all, if we are talking about bringing real “change” to Washington, it starts with full disclosure from the harbinger of change. Don’t you think?
I’d certainly feel a lot better about urging my readers to support Obama if he’s the nominee, if he’d be a little more forthcoming sometimes.
