Guilty Until Proven Innocent In The Age Of Obama

You know it's bad when your liberal allies in the mainstream media reject your ideas (Atlantic Wire). That's the case with the White House and the Democrat National Committee right now, who can't even get CBS to buy into their allegation that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and some conservative groups are taking foreign money to "buy" the midterm elections (see Media Research Center). The DNC has put out an ad to that affect, even calling certain conservatives and the GOP unpatriotic. The Chamber of Commerce unpatriotic? The irony is stunning, coming from the party of Charlie Trie, Al Gore's "no controlling legal authority," and the Obama campaign's anonymous millions from gift card donations, not to mention forced labor union dues from Big Labor. It proves the axiom that when the left accuses you of something, it usually means they've done it themselves (and are tyring to divert attention from real issues). 

MoveOn.org also is in this game with its own echo television spot. This from the group that takes uncountable sums from the likes of George Soros and the same left who accuses anyone of disagreeing with them as questioning  their patriotism. Even the New York Times has disproven the charge. No matter to the White House, which now includes the Chamber of Commerce, once a health care ally, on its enemies list.

For the left, then, it's about control. Whether through a leviathan government or through intimidation, the left wants absolute conformity. When Bob Schieffer of CBS confronted Obama henchman David Axelrod  about whether he had any evidence of the foreign money allegation, Axelrod snapped chillingly:

Do you have any evidence that it's not?

So, in the Age of Obama, it's guilty until proven innocent! The proof? An allegation, and any allegation will do. Especially when you're desperate.

An incredulous Bob Schieffer can't believe the shear gall from the president's chief of enforcement.

Live Webcast Tonight On Health Care Reform

Conservative groups' Webcasts on health care "reform" have drawn tens of thousands this summer. In light of the president's address to Congress the other night, FRC Action is offering another one, tonight. Details are below courtesy of an FRC Action alert. You will see many familiar, outstanding names, some of whom help us, such as Bishop Harry Jackson and Matt Staver. Log on and learn the truth about what's in the bill!

President Obama showed the nation that his plan to reform health care is already on life support. The theme of his speech can be summed in that the details, as the President said, still need to be "ironed out."
