Clear and Present Danger

The thoroughly modern Nixon, Barack Obama, complained about the dangers of free speech when that speech is in opposition to his policies.

"Now, right now, the same special interests that would profit from the other side's agenda, they are fighting hard, they're fighting back. To win this election, they are plowing tens of millions of dollars into front groups that are running misleading, negative ads all across America. Tens of billions of dollars are pouring in.
"And they don't have the courage to stand up and disclose their identities. They could be insurance companies, or Wall Street banks, or even foreign-owned corporations. We will not know because there's no disclosure. They've got these innocuous-sounding names -- "Americans for Prosperity," and "Moms for Motherhood." (Laughter.) I made that last one up. (Laughter.)

"But this isn't just a threat to the Democrats. It's a threat to our democracy."

-- Barrack Obama in a speech in Delaware, Oct 15, 2010. USAToday online.
Mr Obama means it. He genuinely thinks not agreeing with his authority is contrary to national interest. He made similar remarks in Boston on Oct. 16 and in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 12.

October 16:
"Now, let me say this, the same special interests that would profit from the other side’s agenda, they are fighting back just as hard. To win this election, they are plowing tens of millions of dollars into front groups that are running misleading, negative ads all across America. They don’t even have the courage to stand up and disclose their identity. They could be insurance companies, they could be banks, they could be even foreign-controlled corporations. We will never know."
October 12:
"And when I say negative ads, there was a recent study done estimating that 86 percent of these ads that are being run by these so-called third-party organizations are negative. Eighty-six percent of them are negative ads that are just bombarding candidates all across the country, and we don’t know where this money is coming from. We don’t know if it’s being paid for by oil companies who don’t like some of our environmental positions. We don’t know if they’re being run by banks who are frustrated by some of our financial positions. We don’t know if they’re being funded by foreign corporations because they’re not disclosed."
That's enough of that self-serving sociopath.
