The Official Obama Attack Machine

The Obama campaign has been using its power to isolate and demonize the Koch brothers.  That's disturbing enough.

But here's something even creepier: On the official White House web site, there's a a petition to silence Rush Limbaugh.  That's an official -- not campaign -- site, subsidized by taxpayers, being used as an instrument of attack against a private citizen because he has had the temerity to disagree with the President.

As Don Surber notes, "we now have a government using its power to go after a critic."

Given the Obama administration's willingness to promote attacks on Rush Limbaugh for his characterization of Sandra Fluke (for which Rush has apologized), shouldn't some reporter at today's presidential press conference ask the President whether Bill Maher, who's contributed $1 million to a SuperPac for his re-election, should apologize for the even uglier names he's called women over the years?
