Obama knows which radio programs TV programs are "wrong" for us. In other words, he is saying he knows what's best for us!

It probably won't be long until he publishes the approved list for us, or just outlaws the programs altogether. And by the way, I'm so glad to know that Obama thinks we're basically decent people. What an arrogant, condescending fool.

What do President Barack Obama and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez have in common?
Besides their socialist economic policies, they don't abide media critics well.

The Obama White House has Rush Limbaugh, king of talk radio, in its cross hairs. When a president of the United States targets one media personality for criticism, those who live and breathe by the First Amendment should be aware they're on life-support. The executive branch can pull their plug via the FCC, which decides who gets or keeps a broadcast license.

In Venezuela, Chavez has done just that. With all the talk about a revival here of the so-called Fairness Doctrine, is Obama far behind?

Now let's take a look at the Obama record. During a speech to Planned Parenthood in October 2008, candidate Obama said the American people "get confused" by listening to the "wrong talk radio" and "TV networks":
The one thing that I want to insist on is that, as I travel around
the country, the American people are a decent people. Now
they get confused sometimes. You know, they listen to the wrong talk radio shows
or watch the wrong TV networks, um, but they're, they're basically decent,
they're basically sound.

One can only imagine the media backlash against George W. Bush if he had
described any media, including Al-jazeera, as "wrong."
