Congressional Democrats Want Limbaugh to Quiet Down or ELSE
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition to express its outrage after conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh attacked the president's liberal policies.
The petition follows a warning from President Barack Obama that Republican leaders should stop listening to Limbaugh if they want a good relationship with Democrats and the new administration.
Limbaugh told Sean Hannity he’d love to support Obama if he chose different policies:
“If he’s going to do FDR, if he’s going to do the new, New Deal all over — which we will call here the Raw Deal — why would I want him to succeed?”
Mike Johnson, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, said he was appalled at the petition effort.
“This is absolute nonsense," he said. "It goes to show us once more that the radical left in the country depends upon the ability to censor and silence opposing viewpoints.”
Johnson said the real target of the petition is obvious.
“Free speech and religious liberty (are) the only things that stand in the way of (their) agenda," he said, "and so free speech and religious freedom are imperiled.”
Johnson also noted that congressional Democrats have more important things to focus on, such as terrorism and the economy.

Obama can't complete his takeover of this nation with those of us in the opposition criticising him. Too bad. It's called the First Amendment. You remember, your favorite part of the Bill of Rights when some pornographer or atheist wants to spout filthy, blasphemous language into our children's ears!
But beware, this petition is merely a shot across the bow. What the Democrats are planning to do next is say, "Well, Rush (and by extension, Leticia) we tried to warn you nicely, but since you wouldn't stop criticizing, we're gonna hafta shut ya down." Enter the Fairness Doctrine. Then, I'll have to share my blog with some pro-abort atheist. I'll shut it down first.
