    What freedom is there in political speech when one side is shut out?

    Take the stimulous bill for example. There was a promise that all bills would be available for public review for 5 days before signing. It showed up the day he signed it.
    Copies of the stimulus bill had been around LONG before he signed the final piece of legislation. Acting like huge changes were made on the day Obama signed it or for that matter 2-3 days before is non-sense.

    I hope he keeps his promise. However, Given his complete failure to live up to many of his campaign promises, I look at him suspect.
    So saying Rush Limbaugh is an idiot has what to do with Obama's opposition to the Fairness Doctrine?

    One would have to be intellectually bankrupt to pontificate this non response of yours..

    Wrong. This is a lie. Show me where. Thanks.

    When you start dictating what a private businessman must do with his business... (for the public good)... you are interfering with his business and the competitive nature of it. If he doesn't want to hire libs because they don't draw audiences or advertisers... why should he be forced to have his profits plundered and his business programmed by the government?

    When Reagan got the FD eliminated, the radio industry was a shell of what it is today. There was not talk radio as we have. People complained that eliminating the FD would help THE LEFT!

    Reagan believed in free speech and free markets and let the chips fall where they may.
    Amazing to those on the left... in a market the Dems cannot control, they lose big time.

    The Dems talk about fear... fairness... equal results (not opportunity)... which is all a ploy for more socialism and control over free people and markets. Republicans talk about The Constitution. Dems cannot because they usurp it with regularity. The Constitution is a bit like a toilet, maybe more like toilet paper... they twist it, roll it up in a wad, crush it... so they can smear it full of crap.

    It's partisan because there is no majority support for the FD in congress or the President.

    It's a waste of time and a witch hunt by the right. Purely partisan.
