It doesn't come off as a surprise to me, just par for the course, for this admin. It appears they have an extremely thin skin. They are trying to
move this country to a socialist type of country and do it within 2 years.
In order for that to happen they have to take out the opposition and silence debate. The whole basis for them using these style tactics is so they
don't have to explain the policy or the ideas behind it. BHO can stand up in front of the camera and continue to speak out of both sides off his
mouth with flowery rhetoric, then as soon as he walks off stage do something completely different than what he just said.
It really isn't hard to see if you pay attention and try to remain unbiased. The thing about all this is that the Republicans are going to catch heck
for standing up for fiscal conservatism after they spent like liberals for the past 8 years.
If the dems had to openly explain their policies they would be toast. They know this so to counter act this and keep the public's mind off of the
issues that matter they are acting childish and immature in order to silence debate.
Funny thing is RDR17 said it best, if this was Rove that authorized this it would be all over MSNBC for days. The double standard really is showing.
So far the excuse has been it is Bush's fault, and the Republicans did it so it is okay if we do it.
That is why the opposition to Obama is growing pretty fast.
