Obama's Promise Of Transformation Converted The Gov't Into A Thugocracy

If you like your candy, you can keep your candy. I'm sorry your current bag plan has too many Snickers. Snatch...David Burge Tweet

  • I've reported on the Obama administration's bully tactics on several occasions. They haven't stopped.   CNN reported this week that the Obama administration is putting intense pressure on health care insurance CEO's to keep quiet about the problems with Obamacare. In his speech yesterday, the president was already blaming insurance companies and Republicans.
  • In all of these current revelations about Obamacare and the NSA snooping on our allies, one can almost hear the presstitute media weeping. We first watched the media shredding tears when Bob Woodward---of Watergate fame---reported getting heat for referring to sequestration as madness. Also at about that same time, Lanny Davis, a long-time Democrat operative and apologist for Bill Clinton, complained of threats he received to articles critical of the Obama administration. Earlier this year, Real Clear Politics reported the president went so far as to "instruct" reporters on how to report on his {Obama's} positions.
  • The pressure on the main stream media worked. After all, they are part of the same political class. But two events appear to have changed even their attitude toward the administration. Or, to put it more bluntly---which is probably closer to the truth---they could no longer avoid the stories.
  • Obama's lies regarding Obamacare {You can keep your insurance + doctors period} are now in full view for the nation to see. In addition, reports like the one from Forbes today that the Obama administration knew in 2010 that 93 million Americans would be unable to keep their health plans under Obamacare are almost impossible to avoid.
  • The other was the "60 Minutes" piece on Benghazi last week. In short, reinforcing the many criticisms associated with the attack on the consulate, e.g. systemic failures.
  • One has to now wonder what other pressures are being levied against the presstitutes after these revelations. Time and again, they fold. They cover for the administration rather than covering the administration. In other words, they've been cowards in the past. I don't expect that to change unless they will have no other choice largely due to public pressure.
  • One intended consequence is now clear. When Pres. Obama promised "transformation" he meant turning the government into a thugocracy.
