The R.N.C. just responded to the resignation of James Johnson from Obama’s vice presidential search committee, and they are not satisfied. The Republicans obviously feel they have a mini-victory here, but also that they can get more mileage out of the Johnson flap. From R.N.C. spokesperson Alex Conant:
“If Barack Obama is concerned his campaign’s ties to special interests are distracting from his VP search and message, why is Eric Holder still on his search committee? Why is registered federal lobbyist Steve Farber leading the convention for Obama’s supposedly ‘lobbyist-free’ campaign? Obama’s hypocritical attacks show he can’t stand up to his own standard – and that he just isn’t ready to make change.”
