An old new story. Or, new old ...?"


CNN's Carol Costello admitted on Wednesday that President Obama's staff "can be quite nasty" to deal with. Given Costello's propensity to be a bleeding-heart liberal, her admission is all the more striking.

"I felt it first hand when I was, you know, reporting on the presidential race," Costello noted. "I mean President Obama's people can be quite nasty. They don't like you to say anything bad about their boss, and they're not afraid to use whatever means they have at hand to stop you from doing that, including threatening your job." [Full]

Do we have a Pastor Niemoller moment breaking out here?  "I watched administration thugs persecute conservatives, but I am not a teapartier, so I remained silent. ..."   No.  She sounds matter of fact; accepting of harsh behavior from this president.  She violated the code. Pleae sir, may I have another?"

Carol Costello,
new age reporter. News reporter.  Didn't know, or give credence to, if she did, of myriad reports about Obama's propensity to dispatch street thugs to silence critics during his 2008 presidential campaign.  Like these examples.

  •  The Obama campaign's October 2008 order to blacklist the Orlando television station whose reporter, Barbara West, dared ask Sen. Biden a hard question about Barack Obama's tax policies
  • August 27, 2008 .  Sent out an Obama Action Wire email to "supporters" encouraging them to inundate a Chicago radio station  with complaints and demands that a Stanley Kurtz interview about his ties to Bill Ayers be axed.
  • A few weeks later,he again summoned his street army through another Obama Action Wire, inciting them to once again inundate the same Chicago radio show with calls to deny airtime for an interview with author David Freddoso, author of the book The Case Against Barack Obama.
  • A nonprofit called "Accountable America" that is headed by a former operative of (which endorsed Obama, and later provided his "birth certificate")  has been going through campaign-finance databases and targeting conservative donors with "warning" letters intended to depress Republican fundraising.
  • The Obama campaign demanded that the U.S. Justice Department stop TV stations from airing an independent ad focusing on Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers. Again, Obama's followers were summoned to inundate stations with tens of thousands of emails to kill the commercial.
  •  Obama demanded that the Justice Department investigate and prosecute the group that produced the Bill Ayers ad (the American Issues Project) and the man who funded the group (Harold Simmons from Dallas, Texas).
  • Through the attorney for Obama for America, he asked the U.S. Attorney General to investigate John McCain, Sarah Palin, and Republican Senators Voinovich and Cornyn and Representatives Bachmann, Blunt and Ryan because of the Republicans' attempts to draw attention to ACORN's fraudulent voter registration activities.
  • The persecution of Joe the Plumber for having the gall to answer a televised Obama query negatively.

"I mean President Obama's people can be quite nasty. They don't like you to say anything bad about their boss,"

Look at Drudge's page right now.  Were these clarion calls, or what?  And nobody heard much about them..
