US Politics Status Quo

Candidly, those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake.

I would caution people don’t make the assumption that because the quote ‘Hollywood community’ has been historically supportive of Democrats, which they have, don’t make the false assumptions this year that because we did it in years past, we will do it this year.

MPAA CEO and former Senator Chris Dodd on FoxNews. This is why I support United Republic. Until we get the money out of politics, we cannot have an honest discussion of how issues impact the future of our county.

Hat tip techdirt.

PS – Here’s what Senator Chris Dodd thought about lobbyists in 2008:

“The lobbyists can’t get meetings with Chris,” Dodd’s campaign manager Jay Howser said in a recent e-mail to supporters. “He won’t return their phone calls … Chris just isn’t giving them the time of day.”

The videos even suggest Dodd has been so hard on lobbyists that he’s made them cry.
