So Much For "Change"

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on June 9, 2010

Business as usual is back with a vengeance:

President Barack Obama has publicly railed against Wall Street lobbyists for months, even going to Manhattan to ask their corporate masters to call off the attack dogs.

Privately, though, his administration invited some of the same lobbyists to join an exclusive conference call with top White House officials. And that has some lobbyists and government watchdog groups accusing Obama, who promised to change how business is done in Washington, of playing politics as usual.

Read it all. Disillusionment awaits certain people. The rest simply won’t be surprised.
