The Obama Administration is extremely insecure.
What other conclusion can I reach when the Obamessiah receives uniformly glowing coverage of everything he does (or doesn’t) do as well as a whitewash of anything negative…yet the Administration feels the need shut out any journalists that don’t provide 100% of the adoring and spotlighted coverage The One demands.
I’m talking about how this lawless Administration considers itself empowered to block the Boston Herald from full access to a fundraiser President Barack Obama will be attending today. The Boston Herald’s crime: they put a Mitt Romney op/ed on the front page without singing the praises of the Obamessiah who was visiting Boston.
From the Boston Herald:
The White House Press Office has refused to give the Boston Herald full access to President Obama’s Boston fund-raiser today, in e-mails objecting to the newspaper’s front page placement of a Mitt Romney op-ed, saying pool reporters are chosen based on whether they cover the news “fairly.”
“I tend to consider the degree to which papers have demonstrated to covering the White House regularly and fairly in determining local pool reporters,” White House spokesman Matt Lehrich wrote in response to a Herald request for full access to the presidential visit.
“My point about the op-ed was not that you ran it but that it was the full front page, which excluded any coverage of the visit of a sitting US President to Boston. I think that raises a fair question about whether the paper is unbiased in its coverage of the President’s visits,” Lehrich wrote.
It sets a disturbing constitutional precedent when the White House shuts out a news organization it doesn’t like.
Of course, disturbing constitutional precedents are nothing new to this White House. It’s been violating, urinating on and ignoring the U.S. Constitution since Barack Obama took office: taking over and dictating terms to the financial industry, taking over and dictating terms to the auto industry, moving to take over the health care industry, forcing unfavored citizens to purchase products whether they want them or not, suing states for trying to do the job President Obama refuses to do, picking and choosing which laws it will enforce and which ones it will ignore, and so much more.
This is how central planners like Obama always operate. They feel that not only do they know best how to run everyone else’s affairs, they should be empowered to run everyone’s affairs. And if you disagree, they will bring whatever power and force they have available to bear to “educate” you and get your mind right.
If congress isn’t willing to impeach this lawless president (and with Democrats still in charge of the Senate, you can safely bet it won’t happen), we the people will have to remove him from office next year. That means right now we must be busy looking at all the GOP candidates to (1) separate the real Republicans from the RINOs (like Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney, Newt “I was against a health insurance mandate before I was for it” Gingrich, libertarian isolationist and heroin legalizer Ron Paul, and a few others), and (2) get behind the best candidate with our financial and volunteer support.
Let’s roll, America!
