President Thin-Skin Can Dish It Out...

...but he sure can't take it.

Seems the Obama administration has got its panties in a twist over the fact that people are posting video online of the president and his allies talking about their desire and their goal to create single-payer, government-run healthcare in this country.

Apparently, it's such a good plan that they don't want the American people to know about it.

Here's what White House Office of Health Reform communications director, Linda Douglass, has to say about these clips.

In the video Douglas says the site is "taking sentences and phrases out of context, and they're cobbling them together to leave a very false impression."

That's funny. No one in the Obama camp seemed all that concerned about "taking sentences and phrases out of context" and "cobbling them together to leave a very false impression" back in September of last year.

The malignant aspect of this is that Mr. Obama and his advisers know exactly what they are doing. They had to listen to both monologues or read the transcripts. They then had to pick the particular excerpts they used in order to create a commercial of distortions. Their hoped-for result is to inflame racial tensions. In doing this, Mr. Obama and his advisers have demonstrated a pernicious contempt for American society.

Why, it's almost as if this administration is suffering from a complete and unfettered lack of integrity, consistency, and honesty.
