Cornyn outrage at Obama "fishy" healthcare email program...
Sen. John Cornyn, accusing the White House of compiling an "enemies list" on health care, is asking President Barack Obama to cease a new program to have Americans send "fishy" information on health care to the White House.

Cornyn, the Texas Republican who leads his party's Senate campaign effort, said he's concerned that citizen engagement on health care reform could be "chilled."

"By requesting that citizens send "fishy" emails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported to the White House," Cornyn wrote to Obama. "I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward emails critical of his policies to the White House."

Dillon and Contessa were talking about this on M$NBC, about how Orwellian it is. Then Contessa makes a comment about how creepy it is to have "big brother" watching us. Oh, and by the way, there was no mention of the bush email fiasco or of bush's NSA wiretapping.

You know, if I had the time right now, I'd definately go back and have a look at Cornyn's concern with bush email and wiretapping programs and see how outrage he was then.

2. Cornyn doesn't understand why viral emails are part of
the public domain? That man is an idiot. He's too stupid to be in leadership in any form.

4. The DSCC could have helped to rid us of Cornyn, but they refused to help,
our Democratic candidate Rick Noriega. Bill & Hillary tried to get Schumer to help Rick with funding, but he refused instead he gave Millions to the incumbents who already had PAC money from Lobbyist. Cornyn had a huge war-chest to work with and his campaign ads ran almost nonstop.

Rick Noriega would have been a better Senator, but alas we Texans are stuck with Cornyn for another 5 1/2 more years.

Sorry but this still pisses me off!
