Obama: ‘Don’t Want the Folks Who Created the Mess to Do a Lot of Talking’

Earlier he wanted our friends and neighbors to snitch on us...... now, he wants to limit our First Amendment right to free speech. You don't believe it? on the title for a link to a You Tube video of his speech in Virginia.

UPDATE: From National Review Online Blocg "The Corner"

American Caesar [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

Yesterday, at a rally for R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia, President Obama said: "I don't want the folks who created the mess do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking."

For Barack Obama, democracy appears to be a distraction. He really does seem to view himself as a Caesar.

Shortly after taking office, Obama held a meeting with governors. At the time, one person in the room relayed Obama's request that critics and skeptics of the stimulus plan keep their concerns to themselves. Just let me do it, was his attitude. He got pushback and he wasn't happy. He wanted democratically elected state governors to shut up so he could do as he pleased. He knows better and we should respect that, seems to be the attitude.

And if you disagree, you'll have Rahm to deal with.
