Bush Third Term: Lobbyists
Barack Obama often boasts he is "the only candidate who isn't taking a dime from Washington lobbyists," yet his fundraising team includes 38 members of law firms that were paid $138 million last year to lobby the federal government, records show.
Those lawyers, including 10 former federal lobbyists, have pledged to raise at least $3.5 million for the Illinois senator's presidential race. Employees of their firms have given Obama's campaign $2.26 million, a USA TODAY analysis of campaign finance data shows.

If a man in a white robe enters a muddy room, is it his fault if the robe gets dirty or the fault of the room being dirty?

Which brings be to another point, if you put a glass filled with water down momentarily on the floor and someone kicks it over, whose fault is it, the person who put the glass down or the person kicked it over?

The answers to these questions will get you closer to truth than most of the "he stinks too" stuff.
