    Well if you are so godly informed, then please do enlighten me point by point how this is some evil Nixonian enemies list? Beware though, I have been on a roll today, so I might suggest you actually read what is written, watch the video that is posted on her blog page at whitehouse.gov and actually listen to what she said...then, and only then do make this argument. I would love to see it as I will rip it into a *********** shreds.

    Says you; but the notion that the Whitehouse has nothing to do with DNC campaigns requires willful ignorance.

    The leader of the Democrat Party happens to be the President.

    I am curious why you are more concerned with "perceived" false information from citizens than you would be at the obviously false information from the Government; why is that? You weren't lacking this skepticism when Bush was in charge.

    The difference is that if a citizen chooses to participate in a public political campaign their statements are public property and can be and should be examined and either rebutted or applauded.

    What you continually fail to grasp is that there is a HUGE difference between collect contact of people that choose to participate in public political discussions and people that are spied on in their private life for fear they they may or may not be a terrorist.

    If Obama was spying on people via their phones, personal computers, or private discussions I would be completely against this.

    Well there you go again Sam, using nonsensical hyperbolic bile in lieu of genuine honest debate; you never disappoint however.

    My, what a fascinatingly high self opinion you have of yourself without any evidence to support such a high self opinion.

    I suggest you read and comprehend the OP before attempting to rip anything but your credibility to shreds.

    When you do, please share with us how it is you have no problems with the Government trying to combat the opinions of the citizens instead of selling their program with honest facts and how you are more concerned with the potential "disinformation" out there than the "disinformation" being spewed by this Administration on this topic.

    Carry on.

    Ahhhhh, but it is YOU who fails to see and comprehend the fact that any Administration that suggests that people turn in their brethren so that it can counter their statements as being a paranoid pariah State.

    I am fairly certain that if Bush were still President, this blog would be filled with the ranting of Liberals of how fascist this appears. But alas, we know why they so desperately defend the current administration; they have a D in front of their names.

    Actually, the head of the Democratic party is still Howard Dean.

    CORRECTION: It is now Tim Kaine.

    Making a "response" is one thing.

    Using White House, ie taxpayer, funds to conduct partisan campaign research is something else.

    So, you accept that your Messiah is conducting McCarthy-like "Enemies" research.

    You accept that taxpayer dollars are being used to fund research for the Democrat party.

    You accept that the government that can't run a lemonade stand is going to take over 1/6 of the US economy.

    What else do you blindly accept?

    How is it paranoia if it is factual that there are misleading and false campaigns existing out there?

    What exactly is the negative of the White House being given the opportunity to rebuttal claims they feel are misleading? Is it your paranoia that they make persuade people to accept the health care bill?

    And that is due to your paranoia and partisan assumptions. Not reality.
