Is it correct to say that I don't know him in the biblical sense?

so far so good... it isn't enough, but it is a good step.
my first impulse is to approve of limiting lobbyists, further action could prove to be treacherous territory with the freedom to petition right as the complicating factor....the Freedom of Information Act part *seems* really good... we'll see...

I was disappointed that he only banned white lobbyists. What's up with that?


Joke...joke....

It wasn't immediately clear whether the ban would include the traditional "previous relationships" clause, allowing gifts from friends or associates with which an employee comes in with strong ties.

That's a pretty big ambiguity.

And then two days later, there's this:

Obama waives lobbying rules for Lynn


The Obama administration has waived its ethics rules to allow William Lynn to serve as the deputy secretary of Defense.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said he supports Lynn's nomination and looks “forward to prompt consideration by the Senate.”

However, Levin cautioned that his panel will insist and ensure that Lynn, a Raytheon executive and former lobbyist, will comply with a strict set of ethics rules. He said this would include a requirement to recuse himself for a year from any decisions involving Raytheon, a large defense contractor.

He can participate in decisions regarding Raytheon only if "specifically authorized to participate by an appropriate ethics official," Levin said in a statement on Friday.

"The decision of the Administration to impose an additional set of requirements, and then waive them for this nominee, does not change the standards to which we hold all nominees," Levin said.

Several Washington watchdog groups have ratcheted up pressure on Levin and Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the panel’s ranking Republican, to not confirm Lynn because of Obama’s ethics rules.

Amazing, ain't it? The double standard is crazy. That's why Fox's numbers continue to grow, pablum pukers be damned.
