Oh—just listen once again to Obama’s 2008 speeches where he was going to do something about lobbyists.True enough. Obama is acting like the mainstream moderate that he is. Most of the ‘lobbyists’ were campaign donors. This is nothing new. White House visits have been a privilege of both parties’ major donors since the old place was built. Anyone who thought Obama was going to give up a powerful fundraising tool for his party was naive. He qualified all of his promises with, “as long as the Republicans agree to do the same”. Fat chance.Now, if you’re problem is no White House tours, lobby your Congressman to pass a budget that includes funds for that.
