Barack Obama Didn’t Even Wait Two Days To Be Two Faced

Remember when President Obama ripped lobbyists in the State of the Union Speech? Well, a day later The Hill reports:

A day after bashing lobbyists, President Barack Obama’s administration has invited K Street insiders to join private briefings on a range of topics addressed in Wednesday’s State of the Union.

The Treasury Department on Thursday morning invited selected individuals to “a series of conference calls with senior Obama administration officials to discuss key aspects of the State of the Union address.”

The invitation, which went to a variety of stakeholders, was sent by Fred Baldassaro, a senior adviser at the Treasury Department’s Office of Business Affairs and Public Liaison.

The invitation stated, “The White House is encouraging you to participate in these calls and will have a question and answer session at the end of each call. As a reminder, these calls are not intended for press purposes.”

Go read the whole thing. After bashing lobbyists, the lobbyists report getting calls from Democrats wanting donations.

I’d feel worse for some of these folks, if they didn’t jump on the Obama bandwagon so early and so vigorously. Anyone watching his campaigning knew he wasn’t going to be a friend to business and yet business bought him.

Also, this should be a warning to Insurance Companies and Pharma. Newsflash morons: when this is all over, you’ll be cast aside, put out of business. You’re being used to create a “framework” for Single Payer.
