    WASHINGTON — The Senate voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to confirm William Lynn as deputy defense secretary, endorsing President Barack Obama's decision to waive ethics regulations by putting a former defense lobbyist in charge of day-to-day operations at the Pentagon.
    McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he was disappointed that Obama would backtrack on his promise to keep lobbyists out of the federal government. Despite his reservations, McCain voted in favor of Lynn.

    On his first day in office, Obama issued an executive order forcing individuals to wait two years before they could be hired for the agencies they had lobbied and to remove themselves from involvement in issues related to their former employers.

    "Obviously the American people were promised one thing but delivered another," said McCain, Obama's opponent in the 2008 presidential election.
    Ha Ha Ha McCain, more sour grapes.

    Too bad I agree with him on this. Makes me sick.
    McSame and the rest but two voted to confirm.
