    With each passing month, I can't help but notice how obsessed and infuriated the Obama Admin and left wing in general are with two PRIVATE citizens, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin.

    One would think their biggest enemies would be Iran, China, N Korea, the corrupt Mexican druglords..........and to a lesser extent, sitting Republicans as political opponents.

    But no, it seems the left cannot get over it's fascination and obsession with private, conservative citizens:

    Glenn Beck
    Sarah Palin
    Rush Limbaugh
    Sean Hannity
    Mark Levine
    Michael Savage
    Bill O'Reilly
    etc, etc, etc

    I for one look at their left wing counterparts like Olberdork and the She-Man Rachael Maddow as sort of whiny teeny-boppers to not take that seriously. I know Bush looked at them that way, because thats basically what they are.

    But I'm very suprised at just how much influence and fear ONE private citizen, Glenn Beck, and not even his words, but the POTENTIAL for his words caused the United States Federal Government in one simple morning with one simple online video.

    Why is Obama letting the fear of what Beck MIGHT say bully him around on a Monday morning when so much more important stuff is going on in the world???????

    The Obama Administration has the thinnest skin of any in history.

    Anything less than obsessive worship is viewed as an insult, and must be punished or destroyed.

    Though I don't think that it's politically wise for the Obama administration to have acknowledged these people (accept for Sarah Palin who is a politicain), the fact is that all of these people are defacto political figures in this country - and they sure as hell aren't journalists!

    Private citizens?

    Not quite

    Citizens who provide nonstop anti-Obama lies and half truths. Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

    They are also both batshit crazy and deserve whatever they receive

    That's quite a claim. Tell me how Glenn, Rush, Hannity, Palin, and all the others have been "punished" or "destroyed".

    They all seem to be doing pretty good from where I sit.
