    Obama touts freedom at China town hall

    Obama touts freedom at China town hall"We do not seek to impose any system of government on any other nation," Mr. Obama said. "But we also don't believe that the principles that we stand for are unique to our nation. These freedoms of expression, and worship, and access to information and political participation, we believe are universal rights. They should be available to all people, including religious and ethnic minorities, whether they are in the United States, China, or any nation."
    But excluding Fox News, apparently.

    "I am a big believer in technology, and I am a big believer in openness when it comes to the flow of information," Mr. Obama said. "I believe that the more freely information flows, the stronger a society becomes."
    So, by his actions against Fox News, he's implying that he wants to weaken the United States.

    The Messiah is a hypocrite.

    Big surprise there.

    Granted Obama is an idiot for choosing to single out FoxNews he is not doing anything that would silence FoxNews or take away any of their rights to freely say and report on whatever they want.

    NOT Yet, but if you look at what his FCC Chief and others around him want censorship of conservatives in radio and the forced break up of radio networks owned by conservative groups while saying they oppose the fairness doctrine.
    Classic doublespeak which is turning up a great deal with everything Obama.

    Obama is telling them to open up whilr his people here are making plans to move toward the China or should I say Venezuela model since his pal Chavez is only slightly ahead of Obama's Socialist/Marxist time table.

    Mark Lloyd, Obama/Soros hitman at the FCC [Darleen Click]

    Associate General Counsel and Chief Diversity Officer
    A Senior Fellow at the George Soros’ Center for American Progress, Mark Lloyd’s antipathy towards non-leftist participation in the public square is well known. He has written two anti-free speech hit pieces on “conservative talk radio” … a CAP “analysis” “The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio” which never examines talk radio in the larger sphere as being the only alternative to Leftist dominated broadcast television (news and entertainment), newspapers, university and college campuses … and “Forget the Fairness Doctrine”, a whiney little piece where Lloyd tries to bare his teeth against people who oppose his conclusions in the first piece and defends his Trojan Horse plan to achieve his own STFU policy towards conservative talk radio with so-called “local diversity” objectives.

    No, nothing to worry about here with Lloyd at the FCC.

    Radio free-speech advocates aren’t buying it

    Re: Obama touts freedom at China town hall

    obama once told the american people to shut up

    http://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=...-t-701-s&sao=1

    he was referring to all those angry town halls

    the chinese yesterday didn't tell the prez to shut up, tho

    they just pulled his plug

    after packing his town hall with hand picked party members

    President Obama Holds Town Hall in China, Discusses Human Rights, Censorship - ABC News

    too bad, too

    cuz obama's wafted world changing words about partnership, trade relations and cooperation concerning korea and iran

    peking so profoundly appreciates poetry

    which is why the VERY DAY qom was disclosed hu's foreign minister declared his masters' aversion to anti-iran sanctions

    KSTP TV - Minneapolis and St. Paul - China dismisses punishment for Iran nuke facility

    china WILL undermine any international actions taken against iran (as will putin)

    no matter what obama says

    the world is so little like those ivoried halls of harvard law

    a shame

    Bush never spoke to Chinese citizens about human rights, but still you give no props to Obama, just call him a hypocrite. He is not a Messiah, but he may be the best president any of us will see in our lifetime, and your pathetic whining will not change that.

    That's cute, but face it, Fox is vastly more accurate than CNN and MSNBC. Americans know it, which is why their ratings are 10X higher and their advertisers are paying more - not less - these days for air time.

    Fox will go after a conservative if he deserves it. The only way CNN and MSNBC will go after a liberal is if they're cornered and there are not other options. Then it's 50/50.

    Yeah, and you thought the New Deal was great, too, didn't you?

    Obama is an abortion.

    No one is whining. It's called dissent. Howard Zinn, the noted Leftist historian calls dissent "the highest form of patriotism."

    You remind me of so many of my Leftist friends. When Obama is criticized they raise the subject of Bush. However, they go silent when told I agree with them on Bush, but that Obama has downgraded human rights from the American foreign policy agenda. Want evidence? Has Obama supported the Iranian human rights activists in their recent confrontations with the Theocracy?

    My Chinese friends call Obama the American Pu Yi, and we laugh together. Do you know who Pu Yi was?

    Re: Obama touts freedom at China town hall

    obama whines a lot

    to be fair, there's much to cry about

    asia just dealt him yet another embarrassing body blow

    World leaders back delay to final climate deal | World | Reuters

    china refuses to limit the gases it releases as it develops into the world's number one economic power

    and polluter

    instead, hu spoke over breakfast in singapore about "the need to establish a funding mechanism for rich nations to provide financial support to developing countries to fight climate change"

    how selfish can hu be?

    meanwhile, back in america foxnews reports that white house aids whispered today that cap and trade will be delayed until next year, after health care and financial regulatory reform have been "accomplished"

    no news, there

    cap and trade's been dead since august when lincoln, dorgan, pryor, byrd, sharrod brown and stiff neck nelson spoke out ON THE RECORD against the job killing climate bill

    Four Democratic senators call for delay on climate legislation | Grist

    even the whip, durbin, bowed to reality, kinda like prez before the japanese emperor

    anyone remember when obama bent before abdullah in buckingham palace, then the next day DENIED he'd done it?

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmi..._to_Saudi.html

    how 'bout the time ms boxer held her hearing IN AN EMPTY ROOM

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/vid...l_hearing.html

    now, that's funny, a lot more amusing than anything tina fey has ever done, even, the real one

    my, my

    hardly a hopeful headline in sight

    but who's whining?
