Obama Lies Again About "Change" - Will Fish Wrapper Report?

A good article at Hot Air about more of Obama's lies told during the campaign:

To put the old song on its ear, everything new is old again. Remember when Barack Obama said this?
To rousing applause, Barack Obama formally announced this afternoon that the Democratic National Committee will follow his lead and begin refusing donations from registered lobbyists and special-interest political action committees. “They do not fund my campaign,” the presumptive Democratic nominee told a small-town southwest Virginia crowd, after delivering a standard refrain that blames drug and insurance interests for blocking universal health care. “They will not fund our party. And they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I’m President of the United States.”

They may not have funded his campaign, although that’s highly questionable, but the Washington Post reports that they’ll be running his government. Obama has tapped a number of lobbyists for high-profile positions in the transition team, and most of them will likely end up with significant leadership roles in the coming Obama administration:

Barack Obama campaigned on a pledge to change Washington, vowing to upend the K Street lobbying culture he encountered when he joined the U.S. Senate. But more than a dozen members of President-elect Obama’s fast-growing transition team have worked as federally registered lobbyists within the past four years. They include former lobbyists for the nation’s trial lawyers association, mortgage giant Fannie Mae, drug companies such as Amgen, high-tech firms such as Microsoft, labor unions and the liberal advocacy group Center for American Progress. Mark Gitenstein, one of the 12 transition board members who will play a significant role in shaping the Obama administration, worked on million-dollar lobbying contracts with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and promoted legislation for giant defense contractors Boeing and General Dynamics. Until this fall, he was registered to petition Congress and the Securities and Exchange Commission on behalf of AT&T, Merrill Lynch, KPMG, Ernst & Young and others. Gitenstein has blue-chip credentials for the volunteer role on the Obama team. He was chief Democratic counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee during confirmation hearings for controversial Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork; was a close adviser to Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s White House bid; and served as counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Cowardly Obama and Biden Afraid of Tough Questions

I saw this today and just had to put up a quick post, just because the Fish Wrapper editors would live in fear of ever reporting on something like this, much less ask a tough question of a liberal. As reported by P.J. Gladnick:

"Are you joking?"

"I don't know who's writing your questions."

Those were two of the angry responses by Joe Biden to a couple of tough questions posed by Barbara West on Orlando's WFTV. You can get an idea of just how upset Biden was by reading the title of of this account of the heated interview: "Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden." Here are the observations of what happened from the Orlando Sentinel blog of Hal Boedeker the TV Guy:

Dead Fish Wrapper Ignores Biden Remarks Because He's A Democrat

True to form, the Fish Wrapper, continues it's history of ignoring comments made by a liberal Democrat that would be front page news if they were made by a Republican.

The comments this time were made by Joe Biden, Democrat senator from Delaware. In an interview with the New Yorker magazine, he said

"You got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

This was the same man, who said last June:

It's Time For Liberals To Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is

Have you ever noticed that liberal will always jump up and down and sing "Hallelujah!" when a conservative "comes around" the their point of view, but scream and holler when a liberal dares to agree with a conservative point of view?

Today's exhibit of the first part of that dichotomy is the column by E.J. Dionne, Jr. of the Washington Post about Sen. Barrack Obama's visit to Saddleback Valley Community Church.
