Day two of the lobbying hijinks:
Former Bay State Gov. Mitt Romney, who has cast himself as a Washington outsider and blasted his opponents’ ties to lobbyists, has more than a dozen federally registered lobbyists raising money for him and several others advising his campaign, records show.
At a Nashua event the day before the New Hampshire primary, Romney said, “I don’t have years and years of favors to repay, lobbyists who have raised all sorts of money for me.”
But at least 13 lobbyists work as so-called bundlers – those responsible for prodding deep-pocketed donors and generating vast sums of money for the candidate – according to records compiled by nonprofit Washington watchdog Public Citizen.
But did they sit in on senior strategy meetings?
Seriously, if people are looking for Bush’s heir, this guy is it. Another blue-blood with a penchants for making shit up and saying whatever, Mitt is completely beholden to corporate interests, surrounded by sycophants who get upset if you dare question him, attractive enough that he can get the golf reclublican vote, enthusiastic about torture yet completely willing to act religious when the scenario calls for it- the guy is a Bush clone. No wonder Hugh Hewitt has such a man-crush- the past 8 years have been so good, and he sees eight more just like it with Multiple Choice Mitt. hell, might as well ask what Dick is up to the next 8 years.
