Obama on lobbyists, ethics and pork: promises made, staus quo kept

Remember the days when Barack Obama had us all filled with hope and change? Stadiums were filling, children were singing and supporters were fainting. A new presidency was on the horizon.

Remember when an Obama presidency meant:

-No lobbyist would be appointed to the Obama Administration.
Ahhh, but not so fast, my friend. ABC News reports yet another lobbyist to his administration:

-Bills would contain no pork.
Enter $825 Billion of the other white meat, according to the Wall Street Journal:

-Political appointees would undergo the most far-reaching and extensive vetting process in the history of the civilized world.
Now we know there is yet another cabinet appointee who needs to apologize for untoward "carelessness":

This "presidency, the likes of which we have never seen" is starting to look all too familiar.
