White House ironically launches "Reality Check" site

I guess monitoring all the conservative blogs was too much work. Instead, the White House has introduced a new site called Health Insurance Reform Reality Check. I'm still perusing the info myself, but I've yet to uncover the reality of where the money will come from. Anyway, here's a copy of my email to flag@whitehouse.gov. I had no choice but to turn myself in.

Is this for real?

Did the white house communication office really honestly truly ask citizens to report fellow citizens who are saying reporting or blogging "fishy" things about Obama's healthcare plan????

I can't believe this is happening in my America. But just in case it is true... here's my blog
www.joethemom.blogspot.com i've got plenty to say about this and i'll just go ahead and turn myself in. GUILTY!!!

By the way, how much taxpayer money is being used to monitor the "disinformation." Let me know because I wouldn't want to have to make a number up and put it out there on the Web... that would be disinformation, right?

Yours Truly,

Something smells fishy...

Thanks to the Read My Lipstick Network for alerting patriots to what may be the most bizarre thing I've seen yet from the Obama administration...

President Obama and his cronies, czars and comrades want to know WHO is bringing up concerns on his socialized healthcare plan. According to the White House blog:

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

As Jonah Goldberg just reported, this is really an un-American response to the unpopularity of Obama's policies. Much of what has transpired (the lack of transparency, the move to socialized healthcare, the appointment of liberals to the Supreme Court...) has been expected from Obama. But I have to say, I did not expect such a blatent disregard for the First Amendment so early in his term. And by the way, is it really up to the White House to say what's fact and what's fiction?
