    Law firm warns: White House raising 'significant First Amendment concerns'
    August 7, 2009

    A nonprofit public interest law firm is demanding that the White House withdraw a citizen "snitch" program that seeks to collect information on those who make "fishy" statements about President Obama's health care "reform."

    As WND reported, the White House announced the program Aug. 4, pleading with people around the nation to forward to a White House e-mail address anything they see "about health insurance reform that seems fishy."

    In his post on the White House blog, Macon Phillips, White House director of new media, wrote:

    Scary chain e-mails and videos are starting to percolate on the Internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to 'uncover' the truth about the president's health insurance reform positions.

    There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain e-mails or through casual conversation. Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an e-mail or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

    The American Center for Law and Justice, or ACLJ, sent a letter to President Obama today, warning, "This citizen reporting program raises significant First Amendment concerns.

    Bush/Cheney did not need such an innocent, open way to find out what was being said.

    They were tapping our phones, emails and mail. They knew what everybody was doing, thinking, saying.

    I prefer Obama and his methods.

    Complete bullshit.

    But, idiot, let's say it's true. OBAMA not only is continuing this, he's EXPANDED IT! Weren't you paying attention when they not only re-upped the Patriot Act, but expanded it?

    You mindless Obamaphiles, so gullible and so stupid.

    That is one of the most amusing aspects of the Obamobots - as Obama makes mistake after mistake they go back and state Bush did the same - and berate Bush for the very things Obama is now engaging in, often at a far worse scale!

    Ah, the oft-repeated practice of political bigotry...

    And never realizing that their "mom, the other kid did it too" argument completely belies the "change" mantra! If you gotta compare him to Booooosh, haven't you already lost your OWN argument, you mindless idiot drone Obamaphiles? There should BE no comparison!

    Good post.
