Ahh, more "change" we can all believe in.

Well at least they appear to be keeping their promise of disclosing lobbyists WITHIN the Whitehouse.

They are just conducting their secret pocket-greasings and criminality OUTSIDE of it.

And the beat goes on...LMAO

As part of his commitment to bring change to Washington, Mr Obama began made logs of visitors to the West Wing public, so anyone could keep track of who was being granted an audience with his aides and when.

But administration officials have evaded public scrutiny by meeting lobbyists away from the White House, where no record will be kept of their meetings – and the President's pledge to keep them out of the White House will not be undermined.

Hey FYI the link is not working! From your snippet though it seems that transparency only applies to dealings inside the white house.

Well, it certainly appears that our government isn't very fair to it's people.

I'll have my grandma write them another angry letter, she has great penmanship and rules her home with an iron fist similar to Bush's mother.
