"I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over. I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists — and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president." -- Barack Obama, Speech in Des Moines, IA
The above quote from Barack Hussein Obama had a shelf life like everything else since he took the oath of office - what day is it and who is his audience. Promising that no lobbyist will work in my White House, Obama even signed an executive order putting strict rules for hiring lobbyists, which he was breaking before the ink had even dried, hiring John Podesta, Sandy Berger and a host of others in the first weeks of his administration.
Now, Thanks to Breitbart and others, we are finding out how much direct access union lobbyists and others have with the President Obama.
Just a few examples of union access to the POTUS (White House Visitors Log):
SEIU - Andrew "Andy" Stern - 19 meetings with the President from March 2009 and June 2010
AFL-CIO - Richard Trumka - 28 meetings with the President from 2009 to 2012
WH LOGS REVEAL OBAMA MET WITH AFL-CIO & ACLU LOBBYISTS OVER 50 TIMES EACH
