    mad Cornyn accuses White House of compiling 'enemies list'

    Cornyn accuses White House of compiling 'enemies list' | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Texas Politics | The Dallas Morning News

    10:27 AM CDT on Thursday, August 6, 2009

    FROM STAFF REPORTS

    Texas Sen. John Cornyn, accusing the White House of compiling an "enemies list," has asked President Barack Obama to stop an effort to collect "fishy" information Americans see about a health care overhaul.

    Cornyn, who leads the Republicans' Senate campaign effort, said Wednesday in a letter to Obama that he's concerned that citizen engagement on the issue could be "chilled." He also expressed alarm that the White House could end up collecting electronic information on its critics.

    "I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward e-mails critical of his policies to the White House," Cornyn wrote.
    It took the Dallas News to make this a Breaking News story.
    It's time to wake up to the truth that this Obama person is modeling hie enemies list after the Nationalist Socialist party of Germany of 1919 to 1945.
    Tome to flood the White House tip line with the Names of Liberals lying to us about the I Don't Care About Your Health Plan and Cap and Trade. And help stop this; flag@whitehouse.gov

    Starting off with Godwin, eh?

    Once again, he doesn't want to know who is spreading chain letters, he wants to know what the chain letters are say. God forbid the whitehouse try to keep a handle on what rumors are flying around

    I don't get it. If Conservatives have nothing to hide, why are they so paranoid?

    This is the very type of ridiculous blind disciple followers statement I expected of the uneducated Liberals and others who would doom us to a repeat of the Socialist activities of Germany until they were defeated in WWII. If you don't care what Obama does Just say so and Identify yourself as someone who doesn't care about the Constitution's Bill of Rights. I pray this is where it ends before it comes to this.

    In Germany they first came for the Communists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Catholics,
    and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.

    Then they came for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up.

    Yeah, you don't get it.

    How about if you give me the password to your email account. If you have nothing to hide, it shouldn't be a problem, right?

    Not the same thing, but nice attempt at stretching the truth though.

    Well, if Senator Sen. John Cornyn says it, it must be true.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?
