You Can't Have One Wlthout the Other

("After Santorum Left Senate, Familiar Hands Reached Out")

Citizen Cain with the National Restaurant Association, Gingrich with Freddie Mac and Santorum with United Health Care. When the Republican pretenders are scrutinized under the bright lights we find their hands deep in the pockets of  the big corporations. They are lobbyists masquerading as politicians while in office, stuffing their political coffers with contributions in exchange for favorable legislation. They are well paid front men for these same enterprises when out of office. It is not merely their associations that are so distressing. It is their pretending that they are champions of small government and small business. Nothing could be further from the truth, a commodity in very short supply with these Republican candidates.

Right on...but maybe the reason people run for office is to enrich themselves. Obviously, in most cases, they are not qualified to succeed in the private sector.
