Lobbying for Love — Circa 2000
First of all, in the video below, just who is this salt & pepper-haired man who coherently speaks in complete sentences?
And why is he mentioning in 2000 John McCain’s affection for lobbyist money?
BUSH: “It’s important on campaign funding reform that we have campaign funding reform. But it’s also important for people to know that my friend is raising money from people who have business in front of his committee. Nothing illegal about that, but I just want to make sure the facts are laid bare.”
BUSH: “What I need to do is make it clear and not let Senator McCain get away with this Washington double-talk.”
And just this morning, David Brooks — who NEVER pushes Republican Campaign talking points — told me that John McCain has always gone against lobbyists interest. I guess Charlie Black and the rest of the gang are counter-insurgents in the lobbying game. Who knew? Who could have anticipated?
Who am I to believe, David Brooks or my lying eyes?
