Here's an excerpt:
From the official White House blog, entitled "Facts Are Stubborn Things":
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org."
Yes, that's right, fellow citizens. The president is so concerned about the "truth" regarding his policies that he wants you to report dissent directly to the White House.
Can you imagine if President Bush had posted a notice on the White House blog asking Americans to report on their fellow citizens, passing along "fishy" e-mails and links that they got with "disinformation" about his policies?
This isn't about trying to answer critics. This is about knowing who the opposition is, what they're saying, and how to silence them. A completely unconstitutional abuse of executive power by a man who believes that the president's powers are unlimited...certainly not restrained by that outdated document, the American constitution.
