    Lobbyists know where their money comes from, and they will follow that money all the way to the White House, if Mack Cane gets in. Republican politicians believe in the status quo. They have the misguided belief that trickle down, in spite of all the indicators to the opposite, is working great. It may be working but it is not for the working class. Trickle down was the idea, that protecting businesses, over common people, would help the common people. As we have seen, especially over the last eight years, that the system of trickle down, is not a working ideology. CEO make 100's of millions of $$$ a year. And the median salary of the working man has not risen in line with the cost of living, or their white collar peers. Jobs are disappearing at an alarming rate, leaving the country, because of greed at the top. Trickle down economics has created the beast. If it's broke we need to fix it. NOW!

    Nice Try, maybe their scared to death of him, might have to get a real job

    From NBC's Carly Zakin

    We've counted up the earmark requests on Obama's Web site, and they add up to 113 requests totaling $494,266,475.

    ***Update*** Well, math has never actually been our strong suit -- especially when adding with a computer calculator. And after hearing back from Obama's Senate office (and crunching our numbers again) we were a bit off. Obama's total earmark requests (when teamed up with other senators) is $399,766,475. The price tag for his solo earmark requests is $321,766,475.

    Gee, I couldnt find ANY that McCain requested, imagine that....

    If The shoe FITS.........

    Six years later, Pew again measured public knowledge of current events and found that the young (aged 18 to 29) "know the least." A majority of young respondents scored in the "low knowledge" category -- the only demographic group to do so.

    Obama is the earmark King. He took 1 millon earmarks for every day he has been in the Senate. In my book that adds up to 148 million earmarks. Way more then any one else in the Senate. Look it up, I did. Democrat for McCain Palin 2008.

    not only do the lobbyists help McCain, there are over 150 of them operating for him on his campaign, which incorporates his campaign manager. The lobbyist who works for Georgia, not the state in spite of the indisputable fact that the country, is one among McCain's closest overseas affairs advisors. it really is why McCain so instantly assessed what replaced into going on in Georgia with Russia, or maybe it replaced into all staged via the McBush human beings to make negative, old John seem decisive. The President of Georgia even pleaded to the clicking for John and George to come back to his help even as Russia retaliated for Georgia stupidly following Rove's, Bush's and McCain's urging to take those border parts.

    Lobbyists are in both camps.

    Environmental lobbyists in the Dem camp are preventing a vote on the energy bill because it includes offshore drilling, even though 75% of the American public wants a vote.

    The teachers union is in the Democrat camp preventing school choice and keeping failed schools in business despite the American people wanting school choice and a whopping 80% of minorities want school choice, let's ignore that too.

    Starfish tune is a campaign contributor to Pelosi and has their plant in American Samoa, American Samoa was left off the minimum wage increase conspicuously.

    They both have lobbyists. Don't throw rocks in a glass house.

    How many times are you going to ask this question? This is at least the third time you've asked it. Can't you find anything new to talk about?

    You don't even know proper English.

    Lobbyists support Obama as well. Know why? It's very simple: the special interests groups look for support from the candidates and their parties to get things put on ballots and party platforms.

    You're not very familiar with politicians names, or are you just disingenuous? I'd guess the latter, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. The Unions are supporting Obama. Like, all of them. As are the feminazis. He votes like a politician trying to win endorsements and money. By the checklist of all of the unions whose pocket he is in. Read Audacity of Hope, and see how he 'tackles' the issue of being in their pocket.
