Let me begin with a preface. While I do my best to stay clear of politics on this blog, I do, from time to time, find it worthwhile to respond to something in the media or politics. And after a week of very candid efforts by the White House to censor the freedom of the press, I consider it not only worthwhile but of grave importance to draw attention to a few of Barack Hussein Obama's positions on Americans' constitutional freedoms.
You may know about President Obama's comments on NBC, where he alludes to Fox News as "a talk-radio format". And, as an American citizen, he certainly has the right to his opinion. You may also know about the recent attempt of the White House to exclude Fox News from interviews with executive pay-czar Kenneth Feinberg. That's crossing a line. And the other news networks felt the same way.
But what I find even more troubling, are the people Obama surrounds himself with. Glenn Beck, an admitted conservative analyst, does a fine job connecting the dots.
At this point, I don't consider it a stretch to say that we should have given a little more consideration to Obama's friendships with people like left wing radical and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.
