Obama Finds Out Lobbyists Are Hard to Overcome
Lobbying can be described as constitutionally safeguarded activity and lobbyists have become a permanent part of the Washington D.C. policy process.

The Washington Post had a story recently, which is building up some Internet buzz, detailing how frequently certified lobbyists go to the Obama governing administration. It explains both the intractability of the system as well the limitations of strategy rhetoric. Maurice Aguirre Lobbyist

Regarding to the piece, by T.W. Farnham: The White House guest data files make it clear that Obama's senior officials are granting that availability to a few of K Street's most authoritative officials. More often than not, those lobbyists have long-standing relationships to the president or his helps. Republican lobbyists coming to consult with are rare, while Democratic lobbyists are routine, whether or not they are addressing business enterprise and corporate clients or liberal causes.
Maurice Aguirre Texas - That is substantial mainly because, as Farnham publishes: Significantly more than any president before him, Obama pledged to improve the political culture that has powered the effects of lobbyists. He barred recent lobbyists from joining his administration and banned them from advisory boards throughout the executive branch. The president has gone so far as to forbid what had been staples of political interaction - federal employees could not any longer accept free admission to receptions and group meetings provided by lobbying groups.

One particular relevant question which would be of help to answer but is very difficult to: So how exactly does that rate when compared to past administrations? We Are not likely to get a strict number with that any time soon simply because Obama's is the first management to reveal its guest records. I suppose past administrations' activity logs must certanly be on file at the respective presidential libraries, but the data is not downloadable.

Needless to say there's only so much Obama could do in this matter. Lobbying is, in fact, a constitutionally protected procedure. And it's also true that for better or worse lobbyists became as permanent a part of the Washington policy process as selected representatives and unelected bureaucrats. They tend to have specialized knowledge or access to it, and know how Washington works. "The president and the administration lost a great deal not being able to talk to people of both parties and of every persuasion that knew something about the industries and the questions and what was going on on the Hill," Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue told reporters this morning at a press breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. Donohue called the administration's original restrictions on meetings with lobbyists "Mickey Mouse." Maurice Aguirre Washington DC

To be certain Donohue and the Chamber are not followers of the Obama governing administration, but that has not prevented them from cooperating where the possibility happens. "We've got very good relations where it counts," he said. "We work all the time with the guys at the NSC and at the trade office, and with the people at Treasury … We have whatever access we need. We don't spend a lot of time over there, you know, having tea. But whatever we have to get done we get done."

Maurice Aguirre DG Group LLP: On one level this is the kind of rhetoric and attitude that will make activists on both sides break out into hives and start sputtering about collaborating with the enemy. But on another level it reflects some of the pragmatic spirit that has permitted Washington to function (necessity being the mother of cooperation) in a way that the prevailing congressional ethos of compromise means getting more of what I want threatens. "I worry about the Congress … that we have lot of people that are more significantly on the right and significantly on the left," Donohue said. "What really worries me about that is that it's really hard to make a deal if there's no bridge to get there."
