Is this really the kind of insider Obama campaigned against? Obama made a fortune writing books that only sold because he had a Senate seat and could possibly become president. I don’t believe he’s ashamed of that. This is much different than becoming a lobbyist, where you become the mouthpiece of another person or corporation.
Wow. Daschle’s brilliance is worth a couple hundred thousand a month. That’s more than a dollar a month for every vote he garnered in his losing election.
Now, can’t you understand what Blago was saying. He just wanted a small fraction of what the fat cats of DC get– $14 million in two years like Emanuel got from an investment banker handling utilitiy mergers, $5 million like Daschle got for “non-lobbying” Indians, hospital companies, insurers, Mayo Clinic, or 500,000 bonus Gaither got from New York fed for his work during the last two years that just happened to correspond with the biggest bank failures since the depression. If we were China, Gaithner would be sentenced to death.
If we were China, Don, we would be living in a country that now boasts a citizen’s suicide once every two minutes.
