Remember...Absolute power corrupts absolutely! This is a man that voted for the renewal of the Patriot Act, voted for the FISA renewal, and now intends to restrict free speech!


Missouri Governer Matt Blunt's Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

http://governor.mo.gov/cgi-bin/coranto/viewnews.cgi?id=EkkkVFulkpOzXqGMaj&style=Default+News+Style&tmpl=newsitem

JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

this is beyond Nixonian.

free speech will be alive and well-- as long as it is speech he agrees with.
lawsuits to stop political ads
using govt employees, and taxpayer dollars instead of campaign funds to go after those who dont tow the line
a campaign website urging supporters to shut down phone banks of radio shows who have guests they dont like

Uncle Joe and Adolph would be green with envy --- they had to have a police state to do that --- Obammassiah has done it in a democracy
at least it is for now

I really think whoever is running his campaign is mentally handicapped.
One of his fellow patients perhaps? Personally, I think you're being too hard on Obama. He recently added around 10 new states to our union. That should count for something.

Mccain isn't one bit better though, that's the problem.
He is way farther left than bush, he won't do a damn thing about immigration, he has a national health care plan. condemn them both, there's no difference.
