The White House was compelled to comment on the CNN star’s recent comments because a petition on their website calling for Morgan’s deportation has garnered over 100,000 signatures. In a brief statement the White House said:
“The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one. In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.”
Whereas on Rush Limbaugh’s treatment of Obama Tool Sandra Fluke.
President Obama did not preach the virtues of free expression last March when Limbaugh was under fire for comments made about Sandra Fluke. In fact, rather than taking the patronizing “it is worth remembering” language found in the statement about Morgan, the President chose another tactic that did not respect the “bedrock principle in our democracy” that he so embraces today.
After a grandstanding personal phone call to Ms. Fluke he took to the podium in the White House press room and fielded questions about his one-on-one with the Georgetown student.
“All decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse. The reason I called Ms. Fluke is because I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about … and I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”
This is the problem with kowtowing to people who in the end just want to humiliate you no matter what you do.
Good manners and political correctness gets conservatives talked over, shouted down, and ridiculed by the ignorant. I’m done. I will now behave just like a liberal, and express my views even if I have to shout down my opponent, and I will ridicule the communists now in charge at every turn.
It just happened with John Boehner and the so called “Fiscal Cliff”. He gave to the terrorist’s demands and now the little commies want more as in let Obama take over the debt and be responsible for it. All this does is hand the can of gasoline to the pyromaniac. Understand that RINO’s??!!!
