Lobbyist for Raytheon Willie J Lynn was nominated by the current president of the United States of America to be deputy secretary of defense. McCain upon hearing this flew into a irish tirade despite being sober. Then notified by the governor of Arizona that Raytheon is the largest employer in the state McCain grudgenly approved. Even though McCain still believes the USAF should have been awarded the french aircraft contract over Boeing he also realizes they don't build that good of a missile. Although the huffington post says Willie J is a former lobbyist ya still have to sell your stock in the company first to be called former. In defense of Willie J there is alot of down sizing with the economy So I am glad he got another job quickly with benefits. Raytheon has denied any backroom deals with Obama even though they provided the Batman suit for him on inauguration day. O Boy what a great country. Same ole same ole.

another raytheon lobbyist

I am just wondering if Obama is going to move to the center. Pull a Bill Clinton and get another 4 in. Obama doesn't have to fix everything just try to make it alittle better and get some headlines doing it. The thing is its so bad it just takes alittle here and there to look like he is achieving his policies. Now with the Clintons close he has a good scape goat. I would blame them for everything. Plus its fun too. Obama surprised me with a sudtle pick that could be considered a right wing pick. Its just interesting to me what he is doing. Phil Henry the late night am radio host of political satire out of LA has been saying this for awhile. He is a liberal of sorts and says the far left will have a rude awakening. I had to put the Don King pic up because I love listening to him. Reminds me of Deacon Jones from the LA Rams days just great motivators. I think also there is way to much fuss about Aretha's hat. I thought she was very stylish more than I can say about Joe Biden's go go boot wearing wife.
