On the campaign trail Obama talked really hard about lobbyist and special interest groups. He promised to minimize their influence with our elected officials. Do you think he will do this? If so how do you think he will accomplish it?

Do you think he will do this, no. Look a politician does not raise that kind of cash without something in return. The Obama campaign raised to much money to just ignore the lobbyist from where that cash came from.

I know that. But he says " he did not take money from lobbyist". And he promised to get them out of government decisions. We will have to wait and see. I have a list of all the things he promised on a chart. I am going to keep up with what he does that he actually promised, what he doesnt do anything about and what he completely flip flops on. It should be interesting to see.

yep,he will want their money and support again in four years so he will not upset the people who helped him get there in the first place.

Absolutely not, he will not do that, and he will have these wonderful reasons why he won't do it. He is the kind of person who says "we will consider"..."we will exam"....."we will think about"...."we will look into"....and if he does make a commmitment, he finds a way to change it for YOUR GOOD.
