Reasons To Be Cynical Pt. 1: Ford Lobbyist Joins Senate Transportation Committee
February 12th, 2009 10:33 PM Share
The Detroit Free Press reveals that Bruce Andrews, Ford’s vice president of government relations, is leaving the Detroit automaker to become the general counsel to the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. The committee’s remit includes highway safety, international automotive trade agreements and, uh, transportation. The Freep dutifully reports that “Ford had brought Andrews on board to strengthen its ties with Democratic lawmakers.” Mission accomplished, I’d say.

Well, it's all on top of the "No ex-lobbyists in this administration" lie. Welcome to the new transparency, comrades.
I'm not a Democrate or Republican basher but I've said it before - We would have seen more change from McCain than Obama. Obama is going to give us the same crew and the same governemt we had under the Clinton administration - without the sex jokes. Is that bad or is that good? It's not for me to decide. I just comment.
Is the Senate Transportation Committee the same as the Executive Branch? Is the committee hiring a consultant the same as Obama hiring someone??
