    Do you remember President Bush or his Press Secretaries singling out...

    Do you remember President Bush or his Press Secretaries singling out...

    ... members of the press or private citizens that expressed opposition to him and his policies?

    I do not.

    We have had Joe the Plumber attacked by Obama-Biden, as was Sean Hannity, now we have had Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santelli and now Jim Kramer all singled out in short order.

    They also use Rush to make a larger swipe at talk radio in general, as he is the leader of the pack.

    Now, Bush and his Press Secretaries had the pick of hundreds of journalist/celebrities to rag on, but didn't to the best of my recollection.

    Obama has had the vocal opposition of a few prominent journalists/radio show hosts... and they have been singled out.

    I think it is a pretty creepy tactic but illustrative of who Obama and his Komrades are.

    I don't personally recall Bush or his Press Secretaries going after anybody particular. But I've never bothered to research it, so I could be wrong. I figure if anybody would have, it would have been Tony Snow since he was a Fox contributor before he was Press Secretary. But I don't recall any particular instance where he singled out Olbermann, Matthews or any of those crazy cats while serving as Press Secretary.

    No. And he had nothing to do with the term Freedom Fries.

    We keep hearing the sound bite that Rush wants Obama to fail. Everybody knows what he meant but that shouldn't stop anybody from misleading the people.

    Obama could succeed and things could get better. But do we want to live in a European style country where the government controls everything.or do we want to live in the land of exceptionalism?

    Does Freedom Fries still work at CNN, or did he move to MSNBC as rumored?

    Right now it seems a good chunk think Eurosocialism is exceptional.
    LOL.
    Boy are the ignorant masses going to be shocked when they learn the truth.

    I'm sure the Bush administration did this as well...probably just not as loud and boisterous though. However, that does not excuse Obama doing it.

    Kieth Olberman is the head of the new democratic party.

    We 're just waiting a bit for him to say something particularly outrageous before we break the news to the public. Could take about a day.
