But behind Obama's campaign rhetoric about taking on special interests lies a more complicated truth. A Globe review of Obama's campaign finance records shows that he collected hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists and PACs as a state legislator in Illinois, a US senator, and a presidential aspirant.
i'm going to say the same thing i've said every place else i've posted this link. i don't necessarily have a huge problem with him taking lobbyist money, i do however have a problem with him taking the money, saying he isn't, and then condemning all the other candidates and calling them "more of the same". he is lying to the american people, plain and simple.
