President Obama Waives His Own Ethics Rules For Deputy Pentagon Secretary Nominee!

We told you that all of Obama's statement and pledges come with an expiration date and today it happened again.  According to ABC Jake Tapper:
Two days after introducing what he heralded as the most sweeping ethics rules in American history -- ones that would "close the revolving door that lets lobbyists come into government freely" -- President Barack Obama today waived those rules for his nominee for Deputy Secretary of Defense, William Lynn. Until last fall, Lynn was a registered lobbyist for the defense contractor Raytheon.
This is just the beginning, get ready for your CHANGE & HOPE in action.

UPDATE: Another former lobbyists has been tapped as the No. 2 at Interior.  Click here.
