Another Campagn Lie … NY Times Reports Obama Campaign Bundlers Have Ties To Lobbying
Another “Hope & Change” Obama campaign promise goes bye, bye … Hey America, how’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for you?
Remember when candidate Barack Obama said he was going to change the culture of Washington, DC and that there would be no lobbyists in his White House or that he would take money from lobbyists? The NY Times is reporting that President Barack Obama has at least 15 “bundlers” who contribute their own money to his campaign and solicit it from others that are involved in lobbying for Washington consulting shops or private companies.
Despite a pledge not to take money from lobbyists, President Obama has relied on prominent supporters who are active in the lobbying industry to raise millions of dollars for his re-election bid.
At least 15 of Mr. Obama’s “bundlers” — supporters who contribute their own money to his campaign and solicit it from others — are involved in lobbying for Washington consulting shops or private companies. They have raised more than $5 million so far for the campaign.
Because the bundlers are not registered as lobbyists with the Senate, the Obama campaign has managed to avoid running afoul of its self-imposed ban on taking money from lobbyists.
As SC Representative would say, “You Lie!” Also, as Weasel Zippers reminds us, how bad and blatant a situation must this be if the New York Times is blowing the whistle on Obama? 3 … 2 … 1, the political ad is already in the can.

Thank you, New York!
now he has shebama out on his campaign trail telling people that republicans will take away our freedom of speecha nd all of our rights. and of course, their pet propaganda that anyone who doesn’t support the democrat commies are racists.
Barry is just being a good muslim. Lying is permissible in that culture if it gets you what is needed.
Haha – love it when the uneducated, admittedly racist old guys in #2 & #3 comment. Shows how unhinged the extreme right wing is nowadays.
So let’s get this straight….anyone who contributes to a campaign is now an “unregistered lobbyist”? None of the “bundled” are registered lobbyists. They were publicly disclosed.
Compare this to Republicans that funnel hundreds of millions of dollars from their 1% masters anonymously. Which is the bigger problem?
#2 – zero chance Cain gets a republican nomination. Zero. Conservative republicans will never nominate a black guy for president. Never.
Conservatives will nominate a RINO/liberal like Romney before a black guy. They’ll toss all supposed conservative convictions aside and Romney will be the nominated one.
