Dictators and Communists like Hugo Chavez, Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, don’t like freedom of speech. Some even control the media exclusively. Where private news and commentary are outlawed.

“Now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul.”
Aside from pure desperation that he can’t, and doesn’t, control the flow of information about his administration, the “Saul Alinsky” in him is showing.
