This could very well be what destroys Obama's presidential bid

Put it this way Loam, there won't be an election in 4 years if Obama becomes POTUS. The US will be a Union (NAU) and Obama will have a Demcratic Congress with a 8% approval rating to work with in passing his Marxist agendas.

If McCain gets in, much better chance of an election in 4 to 8 years.

Here's a blog that sums up nicely what Obama's campaign did to Stanley Kurtz. "Stanley Kurtz's Fairness Doctrine Preview"

Note: In case you don't know what the Fairness Doctrine is - it's a limitation of the freedom of speech by silencing AM talk show hosts.

Milt Rosenberg did get to interview Stanley Kurtz, but people with legit questions didn't get a chance to call in.

After 90 minutes of alleged smear peddling, Milt Rosenberg (a well-respected host whose long-form interview show has aired in Chicago for decades) opened the phone lines, and blind ignorance soon began to crackle across the AM airwaves. The overwhelming message was clear: The interview must be put to an end immediately, and the station management should prevent similar discussions from taking place.

One female caller, when pressed about what precisely she objected to, simply replied, "We just want it to stop!" Another angry caller was asked what "lies" Kurtz had told in any of his reporting on Barack Obama. The thoughtful response? "Everything he said is dishonest." The same caller later refused to get into "specifics." Another gentleman called Kurtz "the most un-American person" he'd ever heard. Several of the callers did not even know Stanley's name, most had obviously never read a sentence of his meticulous research, and more than simply read verbatim from the Obama talking points.

On this web page there is even a link to a podcast of the show. The report isn't blowing the issue out of proportion. Listen to it for yourself.

Another update on this issue - this time from the Wall Street Journal!

Obama Should Come Clean On Ayers, Rezko And the Iraqi Billionaire

A good read. Apparently Obama's campaign's attempt to curb free speech during WGN recent show featuring Stanley Kurtz has cause a lot of waves in the media. Thousands of Obama supporters flooded the radio station with phone calls demanding that Ayers shut up and that the radio station management never allow him or people like him to speak again. Yep, censoring free speech when it's in their best interests. The vast majority of these people didn't even know who Stanley Kurtz was before the Obama campaign sent out an email to their followers imploring them to call the show. But WGN did try to make it fair - they asked someone from the Obama campaign to appear and represent Obama, but they declined.

An Obama campaign email to supporters called Mr. Kurtz a "slimy character assassin" whose "divisive, destructive ranting" should be confronted. WGN producer Zack Christenson says the outpouring of negative calls and emails is "unprecedented." He also notes that it is curious -- because "we wanted the Obama campaign's take" on Mr. Kurtz's findings, but the campaign declined to put anyone on air.

But here's yet another interesting move by the Obama campaign:

Separately, Mr. Obama's lawyers have also demanded that the Justice Department prosecute an organization called the American Issues Project for running an ad about ties between their candidate and Mr. Ayers.

Wow - they ARE desperate to shut them up! So now political ads can result in prosecution? Good luck with that one, guys.

And also, pay very close attention to this paragraph in the story - it's very revealing, especially if you thought Obama's life story was an "open book" and you thought you knew everything about him:

Walking the rows of media outlets at the Denver convention, I had no trouble finding reporters who complained the campaign was secretive and evasive. Ben Smith of has written about Team Obama's "pattern of rarely volunteering information or documents, even when relatively innocuous." Politico asked months ago if Mr. Obama had ever written anything for the Harvard Law Review as a student. The Obama campaign responded narrowly, with a Clintonesque statement that "as the president of the Law Review, Obama didn't write articles, he edited and reviewed them." This month it turned out Mr. Obama had written an article -- but it was published a month before he became president.

Give the article a read. It's well worth the time. And maybe before the election Obama will finally realize that he does need to come clean about all of these things if he truly wants people to trust him.
