    So they’re complaining about a new revenue source that DOESN’T raise taxes?

    NebulousRikulau, so you call rich liberals, giving half a million to Obama for special personal access to the president, to be “revenue”?

    If this was happening with a Republican president, you libs would be screaming about the corrupt Republicans and their rich friends, but as always, when it involves Obama or some other Democrat, you hypocrites don’t have a problem.

    @Brandon

    Don’t be silly. Progressives and those you call liberals didn’t scream when Bush did pretty much the same thing. We disapproved, but it was to be expected from a Republican, so there wasn’t that much fuss. On the other hand, there is in fact a lot of criticism coming from the “left” over this from Obama… I guess you’re not in the loop on what we’re really saying to each other.

    As people have looked away in disillusionment and frustration, we know what’s filled the void. The cynics, and the lobbyists, and the special interests who’ve turned our government into a game only they can afford to play. They write the checks and you get stuck with the bills, they get the access while you get to write a letter, they think they own this government, but we’re here today to take it back. The time for that politics is over. It’s time to turn the page.

    SW10, thank you for blameing President Bush here. I thought we were going to have to go a whole day without hearing that from the left.

    hahaha, funny. oh, you think that cash goes into the US Treasury cash box?

    Those are “campaign” contributions. And the Prez not going to run for office again…or will he?

    Unlike the old days when no one got to see the W. Not nobody, not no how.

    @saywhatwhat

    You know, once again you have made a statement and not provided any proof of that statement.. You said: " liberals didn’t scream when Bush did pretty much the same thing."

    Alright,, taking into account that “pretty much the same thing” may broaden the scope of what can be taken as “paying for access” to the President, I googled “did donors pay for access the president bush”. That got me 2.1 million hits and the first reference that indicated something of like nature was this:

    http://www.pennsylvaniacrier.com/filemgmt_data/files/President%20George%20W%20Bush%20lobbyist%20in%20cash%20for%20access%20row.pdf

    The article says a a lobbyist could arrange meetings with “key administration officials” for a 6 figure donation to the library in Texas. I assume it is the presidential library.

    See how easy that is? Still, it is strange to think that this is acceptable to anyone.

    Yesterday I read the name Saul Alinsky and it reminded me of Bill Maher ranting about comparisons to Obama.
    President Obama was 10 when Saul Alinsky died, so there is no direct connection there.

    Although this ’toon may be aimed at Obama, it is probably timeless and will still be applicable during the next presidency, and the next, ….and the next,….etc.

    69 years old, you knew Nixon and you can lie with a straight face.

    Good strip Lisa. BUT you need to have 2 MORE doors; 1 for the Senate and 1 more for the House!
    Some of the last #‘s I saw showed the oil and gas industries alone spent more than 3 Billion $’s on lobbyists!
