It's not false if the order has a loophole where the President can override it.
Who checks the fact checkers?
Is this a surprise? He can't keep his lies straight even with teleprompter assist.
I LOVE THIS PRESIDENT – HE IS TRYING HARD TO WORK WITH THE PARTY OF 'NO' AND HAVING TAKEN ON THE MESS BUSH LEFT BEHIND – I WISH HIM WELL
YOU LIE!! Where was Joe Wilson??
there are a bunch of people in Obamas cabinet that are lobbyists.
Just one more falsehood.
Another day, another lie.
Some lobby in the capital? A lobbyist is one who touches people in the lobby with money or favor.
CNN needs to do their homework better. Another source shows 7 waivers by White House staff alone! There's surely many more.
Let's be serious folks. Four lobbyists? whats the matter there? There are tens of thousands of them around the country. Please, even Jesus told us it would be easier for a camel to get through a needle rather a sinner gets into the Heaven, but he did not say it was impossible. Give the president a break. He needs some quiet time to work for the country.
I agree with president obama I don't think lobbyist should be allowed in politics and I support him 100% no lobbyist and everyone work together pass health care , create jobs , and freedom of speech to everyone including the president .
As a percentage of the thousands of lobbyists interfering with We, the People's business in DC, I'd say 4 is .0000000000000000001%. (but that is just a guess, not a fact, please don't quote me on it.)
Hussein has WMD.....now that's what I consider FALSE.
CNN you are too much. You're becoming much like the other wack guys on FOX who I don't watch either. Your red is showing CNN; not only just Campbell Brown in her red dress. BTW, I'm watching MSNBC right now. LOL
I was pleased with the address. It was more positive and about what we want to hear. I am so tired of the Republican negative speeches and position of hate and how afraid we should be. I talk with so many people that are actually frighten of what is going on because they a Republican.
You should definitely look a lot harder CNN--as there are DEFINITELY more than 4.
Wrong–he said his policy is to exclude lobbyists from policy jobs-seven were granted waivers
Indeed. I cringed when he made this too absolute comment. If it's the worst of his politicizing, then we're in ok shape, but it's still bothersome.
Ha once again his lies continue
Actually there are at least SEVEN lobbyists on the White House staff that were given waivers; not counting all the other cabinet waivers. Obama knows that – he approved the waivers. He outright lied to the American people in his SOTU tonight. Same lies as 'transparency' – why has he refused to allow C-span to see what goes on in the back room deals his party has foisted on Americans? He is the problem – not us. He is so arrogant he thinks he can pull the wool over the eyes of all Americans – a good speaker/orator does not an honest president make. And stop Blaming the previous administration – this has been your administration for over a year now – step up to the plate.
This time, Joe Wilson had to bite his tongue.
President's speech was right on – however the negative Tea Bag and Republicans continue to shred the fabric of our nation ... and CNN is right there continuing the shredding instead of weaving the threads back together. Your negative reporting turns this ordinary citizen off your program. However, I will continue to communicate with my senators and legislators.
I just sent my first message to you so there is no way this could be duplicated or that I could have sent it twice. Evidently the internet isn't accurate – that's why I like to know my senators and legislators personally so I can contact a real person.
