Obama administration whistleblowers will not be tolerated!

First the NYTimes and Salon called out King Obama for his admission of comfort in assassinating an American citizen. Now the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reports:

The Justice Department's decision to subpoena a New York Times reporter this week has convinced some press advocates that President Obama's team is pursuing leaks with the same fervor as the Bush administration...

"The message they are sending to everyone is, 'You leak to the media, we will get you,' " said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. In the wake of the Bush administration's aggressive stance toward the press, she said, "as far as I can tell there is absolutely no difference, and the Obama administration seems to be paying more attention to it. This is going to get nasty."

I'm increasingly convinced that when someone in government takes the title Chief Executive Officer, all-too-often they begin to believe that they can do no wrong and need not listen to anyone.

Obama is doing a great job. Just think where the recovery would have been if the R's worked on solutions rather than just sscreaming NO, NO, No !!!!!!!! and opposing everything.

Not only is Bush and the R leadership responsible for this disasterous recession, they have have done nothing to help the more than 10 million people out of work and all the while taking the taxpayers's money for doing nothing. They might as well be considered to be on a no show job.
