Although many felt that Barack Obama's slip with "Spread the Wealth" was accidental, I am beginning to think it was more cockiness. He hasn't been the only one in recent days to come out of the liberal closet so to speak. Just listen to the words of Democrats making their gleeful rounds on the media circuit.
Barney Frank last week on CNBC said:
I think at this point, there needs to be an immediate increase in spending, and I think this is a time when deficit fear has to take a second, uh, a second seat. I do think this is the time for a very important kind of dose of (unintelligible). Yes, I think later on, there should be tax increases. Speaking, personally, I think there are a lot of rich people out there who can tax at a point down the road to recover some of this money.
This week New Mexico Democrat Jeff Bingaman told a local radio stations the following:
"I would want this station and all stations to have to present a balance perspective and different points of view."
While the fairness doctrine sounds "fair" it's sole purpose is to rid talk radio of such personalities as Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Laura Ingraham. You don't see the Democrats referring to The New York Times, MSNBC, or CNN when they refer to the "Fairness" Doctrine.
While I am sure Liberals will be jumping out of their seats at the chance to silence these conservatives, it should scare the crap out of independents and moderates. You might as well be living in China listening to state run radio. It won't be much different.
There are a few even scarier scenarios that are trickling out today. Even if Obama doesn't take money from your paycheck, he is about to empty your wallet if elected........more on this tonight.
