I can’t tell you how much I wish President Obama would have done one of two things:
– not make a rule about lobbyists in his administration
– or if he’s going to make the rule, then darnit, stick to it.
I cannot for the life of me understand why Obama insisted on putting Timothy Geithner in charge of the Treasury Department, given Geithner’s ethical issues with paying his own taxes. Now we learn that Geithner’s second-in-command has been a lobbyist for Goldman-Sachs.
Errr… excuse me, but isn’t that a lot like putting the mouse in charge of the cheese? The fox in charge of the chickens? Naming Jimmy Hoffa to run the CIA?(assuming he’s not dead).
Change might be coming to America but so far the only change that’s happening is at the Post Office, where all these folks are changing their PO boxes.
C’mon Obama. There are millions of people in this country. Can you not find anyone suitable to work in these jobs who don’t have lobbying connections?
