The Lobbyist Obama is promoting is not your run of the mill, fork over Millions for Votes type, but the Head Lobbyist at Fannie Mae before it crashed.

Why is this Obama Lobbyist so sinister? This Obama Lobbyist was responsible for Blocking Regulation of Fannie Mae during the book cooking scandals leading to their fines and eventual collapse requiring Bail Outs.

SO WHY IS OBAMA PROMOTING A LOBBYIST CROOK from Fannie Mae that played a large role in the Financial Collapse of this country?

How is Obama that Stupid?

What experience has Obama ever had at running anything?

Is this what you get when a jr Senator is elevated way before he's ready?

Is Obama on the Take again amd-or is he really this stupid?

Most Rethuglicans were in lockstep with Abramoff and benefitted from his fundraising, not to be outdone, of course, by John Boner "The Puke of Orange" handing out oil company checks to Rethuglicans on the floor of the house when he was leader.

Fascism, thievery, and Rethuglicans go hand in hand- rather like Bush and the Saudi King.

That is not true. RALPH Reid, a Georgia REPUBLICAN whose "public relations and lobbying companies had received at least $4.2 million from Abramoff to mobilize Christian voters to fight Indian casinos competing with Abramoff's casino clients."

So were you purposely lying about Harry Reid, or are really that ignorant?

I saw a whole lot of Republicans in that article. They never met a lobbyist they didn't like.
