Get a load of this. The Democrats have started a petition against Rush Limbaugh after he stated that he hoped that President Obama fails. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says the petition is meant "to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they're up against if they start attacking President Obama."
This is a striking about-face, isn't it? Seems like for the last eight years, everyone in the Main Stream Media was actively rooting for President Bush to fail spectacularly. In fact, every single thing that happened was immediately labeled as Bush's fault. (Hey, I couldn't fall back to sleep when I found out it was a snow day this morning! That's Bush's fault too!) But now, when somebody says something bad about Obama, it's suddenly so taboo that the offender needs to be immediately banned from broadcasting? WTF?
Conservatives are saying that this is the opening salvo in an effort to crush Conservative Talk Radio and re-institute the so-called Fairness Doctrine. I'm inclined to agree with them.
I think the guys at the DCCC need to brush up on their Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press, or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.--The First Amendment of The Constitution of the United States of America.
