You missed the point again. He should have never asked YouTube ANYTHING.

I agree. I am merely addressing the blatant lie in the thread title.

I wouldn't call it a lie. The Obama administration wanted Google to suppress the video.

Asking to see if something violates the terms of use is not suppression.

Quote:
Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told the Washington Post midday that the White House has “reached out to YouTube to call the video to their attention and ask them to review whether it violates their terms of use.”

It is a lie though. they didn't demand or even ask Youtube to pull the video, they asked them to review it over their terms of use.

Would the Obama Administration like it if that video weren't around? Probably.

Do I disagree with the decision to ask? I do, but it's closer to a slight discomfort as opposed to a full blown DefCon 1 ICBM retaliatory launch.

Did we need the weasel words or explosive language over this? Nah (disregard the ICBM ), it's a story enough without jazzing it up with the spin and lies. We can talk about this without going into a deep partisan tirade.

Yes, I am so blinded by Obama's halo I am not even voting for him.

Sorry, broad-stroking does not work or fit me. I do not follow the herd. I was born with a brain and actually use it.
Spin it anyway you want obama tried to get the movie pulled. That my friend is censorshop from the top man, head guy, the big cheese himself, and that should scare the bejesus out of all of us.

The story says the Administration asked them to review the compliance with the TOS. Which is what Comet said. I don't see the disconnect...

Ya have to love people who are so blinded by obama's halo....
Gotta love people who don't realize that correlation doesn't necessarily equal causation.
