There's been lots of attention to this story, about Mitt Romney's on-camera exchange with Glen Johnson. The video is here. This is the only part of the discussion that matters:
I don’t have lobbyists running my campaign,” Romney said. “I don’t have
lobbyists that are tied to my … ”
“That’s not true, governor!” Johnson suddenly interjected. “That is not
true. Ron Kaufman is a lobbyist.”
This is the fact that the MSM coverage is obscuring: McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, is a former lobbyist. Mike Allen documents that here.
So: The man running John McCain's campaign is a lobbyist. On the Romney side, Ron Kaufman is an unpaid advisor to Romney's campaign.
Do you see the difference? I hope someone does. So Romney's statement was absolutely correct and a good dig at McCain's campaign. It seems the MSM doesn't like that.
