Asked how he could reconcile a strict ban on lobbyists in his administration with a Deputy Defense Secretary nominee who lobbied for Raytheon, Obama interrupted with a knowing smile on his face.
"Ahh, see," he said, "I came down here to visit. See this is what happens. I can't end up visiting with you guys and shaking hands if I'm going to get grilled every time I come down here."
Here we go again, this is supposed to be the most transparent administration and he still will not answer questions. The irony of the question being about a lobbyist he has appointed to a position influenced by the same lobby is priceless. This guy is Chicago politics, just like many have been saying for years, and he is simply another Carter, another Clinton, and another FDR socialist. Let us just hope there is no monster war, I do no think Mr. Obama would be as good at handling that as well as FDR did.
