I'm going back to calling you guys fascists!
Forget about who is president and look at the facts:
A lobbyist pays for a party thrown by a person in a position to influence legislation and , quid pro quo, she does. That's not a problem?
Again, you're pro-American!?!? Not from where I sit. Maybe it's that you don't understand business, that I can excuse.
Clinton didn't do it first, by no stretch in the modern era has it been DONE like it is now by Bush, not even his father. Every administation had a
'carry over' from the private sector in the fox scenario. But Bush, it's IN EVERY DEPARTMENT!
From the Center for Public Integrity:
Overall, 22 of the top 100 Bush officials had significant holdings in 33 companies that lobbied their departments, agencies or offices.
--Overall, 20 of the top 100 officials in the Bush administration, including all department heads, work in departments, agencies or offices that
their former, private sector employers lobbied or from which they sought federal contracts in 2001.
