Does President Obama have his own Enemies List?
Why would the president target private donors calling them out by name to his political enemies?
Now why would he do something like that? One would think a self-righteous President like Obama wouldn't do something like that...
I wonder if mainstream media would have tolerated public intimidation from the Bush Administration or its campaign people?
McCarthyism is defined by Webster's as the "use of unfair investigative and accusatory methods to suppress opposition,"
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...604524916.htmlRichard Nixon's "enemies list" appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.
