"No public tours, but 344 visits by lobbyists to the White House" (over just 3 months)

"Regular American citizens visiting the nation's capital lost access to the White House in March as President Obama eliminated public tours to make a point in his battle with House Republicans in the sequestration debate over cutting spending or raising taxes.
But hundreds of K Street lobbyists, including corporate advocates who are paid to influence policy on behalf of Fortune 500 giants, saw no change in their access to the chief executive and his senior aides, according to a Washington Examiner analysis of White House visitor logs and lobbying records.
The analysis found that 200 lobbyists met 344 times with White House officials at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. between March and May."

The general public is a burden on the White House staff.

On the other hand, lobbyists come bearing gifts and sweetheart deals and promises of lucrative employment after the incumbent is no longer incumbent.

Exactly, for example the big issue now is all the administration "officials" who helped draft the Oblamercare law are making mega money as "consultants" to law firms and big business helping them understand how they can profit off of this monstrosity. This administration is chock full of lying hypocrites starting with the Hypocrite-in-Chief - Oblamer. What a pompous narcissist and brain dead idiots voted for the idiot TWICE! (well there were a bunch who voted for him six times or more but they just didn't understand the rules so they got a free pass....)
