Both campaigns deal with lobbyists, and not all lobbyists are agents of oil companies and hand wringing hegemonists, but the McCain staff is totally run and overrun by them. When McCain claims he’ll “change the way we do business in Washington,” business is the key word.
I’ll not even get into what a laughable copy cat campaign he’s running, but it’s clear his staffers hang on every word Obama says, and every email his campaign sends. They’re on my.barackobama.com more often than a vegan English major at Reed college farming for slogans and policy positions.
Yeah, that’s chuckle! What’s not funny is how seriously irresponsible McCain has been in choosing his handlers and allies.
” When I see photographs of Sen. McCain’s staff, it looks to me like the team of lobbyists who used to report to me. Senator McCain’s attack on Senator Obama is a cheap shot, and hypocritical.”
William Maloni Fannie Mae Senior Vice President for Government and Industry Relations (1983-2004)
Full letter here. Maybe McCain doesn’t choose them at all, but instead, they chose him.
