On Thursday Obama's VP candidate Joe Biden was asked some very tough questions by Florida WFTV anchor Barbara West.
The Obama campaign is livid over this interview. They immediately cancelled a scheduled WFTV -9 interview with Jill Biden and made it clear that further interviews with members of the Obama campaign by the Florida TV station were very unlikely.
Again, the Obama exhibits his tendency toward being thin skinned when it comes to tough questions and close scrutiny of his socialist policies and radical associations. When Samuel 'Joe the Plumber' Wurzelbacher dared to ask his 'Excellency' a question regarding the socialistic nature of his tax plan, the left leaning media went out of it's way to try to discredit an average Joe. Now it seems that government resources have been misappropriated in the effort to discredit Joe according to the Columbus Dispatch.
"Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher’s driver’s license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate. Information on Wurzelbacher was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department. It has not been determined who checked on Wurzelbacher, or why. Direct access to driver’s license and vehicle registration information from BMV computers is restricted to legitimate law enforcement and government business."
Denying interviews is one thing, illegally invading the privacy of a private citizen for political purposes is quite another. When Obama's passport information was illegally breached people lost their jobs over it. Those individuals who looked at and released the illegally obtained information on Wurzelbacher should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I recently read this list to a friend and asked her which party's point of view they best represented. She immediately responded with, "The Democrats!" If you have come to the same conclusion, you are both wrong, at least technically. This list actually comes from the website of the Communist Party USA.
The idea that Democrats are socialists is not merely a smear campaign orchestrated by far right conservatives, it is a matter of fact. As a former Democrat and socialist, it pleases me immensely that many Americans are now coming to that realization. The "s" word is being used on the campaign trail by John McCain often and effectively. It is long past time that American confront this issue and decide which ideological road America should take. For far too long Democrats have subversively implemented their socialist agenda while denying their socialist ideology. It is now becoming very difficult for them to do so, especially as Americans become aware of the Democrats close associations to socialist groups and organizations. Of the Democrats in Congress, 73 of them are members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), of these members, at least 33 are also members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). I use the words 'at least' because the DSA website no longer publishes a list of DSA members serving in Congress. The most recent DSA list of its congresstional members is from 2002.
These are the CPC members who are also DSA members;
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA-8)
Senator Bernie Sanders (VT)
Lynn Woolsey (CA-6)
Neil Abercrombie (HI-1)
Xavier Becerra (CA-31)

It is high time that we gave the socialist in Congress the boot.

Certainly this type of lively interaction between the audience and the candidates is something that the Democrats wanted to avoid. Obama is ahead in the polls and they just needed to maintain the status quo. Tom Brokaw's performance as moderator was very helpful to that end. The tight constraints that Brokaw insisted upon hampered real debate and forced the candidates into a positions in which each was giving miniature stump speeches.
With regard to the comments by the angry man in the video, he absolutely hit the nail on the head. The socialist are trying to take over our country and Barack Obama has an agenda which will take us further to that end. Some time back I published a post on Obama's socialist connections. In it, I referenced Obama's association with and endorsement by the New Party (a socialist fusion group). It has recently come to light that Obama was actually a member of the NP and signed a contract promising to maintain a visible relationship with the group. The proof is a document which was scrubbed from the NP website but was archived by Web archive .org. This document lists Barack Obama as a member of the NP in Illinois.
To my knowledge, Obama has not, as yet, denied the charge, but make no mistake, he will deny it.
