Democratic Candidates at Yearly Kos
From talking to a snowman to courting moonbats, it looks like treating our military men like crap is not all the Kossacks are good at. Eight Democratic candidates spoke at the Yearly Kos. Boos and hisses for Hillary when she was grilled about taking money from lobbyists -
Nonetheless, the bloggers booed and hissed when Clinton insisted a moment later that nobody would believe that she could be influenced by lobbyists' money. So would she continue to accept those donations? "Yes, I will," she said, arguing that plenty of lobbyists represent good causes. "They represent nurses, they represent social workers, they represent, yes, they represent corporations that employ a lot of people."
Obama rejected that argument, saying Clinton should know better because special interest money helped sink her health care package in 1993. The crowd cheered wildly.
Edwards asked crowd members how many of them were represented by lobbyists. A few hands went up, and his point was made. While they don't accept money directly from federal lobbyists, Edwards and Obama are not above benefiting from the broader lobbying community. Both accept money from firms that have lobbying operations, and Obama in particular has tapped the networks of lobbyists' friends and co-workers. Obama, a former state senator from Illinois, has long accepted money from state lobbyists.(LINK)
You gotta love it! While the left loves to say the GOP is in big trouble, it is in fact the democrats who are in trouble. Hillary and her past...Obama and Pakistan...I got a good smile out of this on a Sunday morning.
