A Sure Sign That It's On Its Way

A headline on Fox News: "White House: Obama Opposes 'Fairness Doctrine' Revival"

In recent weeks Obama has shown how his words differ from reality:

On his promise of bipartisanship: "I won." Congressional Democrats then proceeded to craft the stimulus bill without Republican input.

Obama also promised to accept public financing for his presidential campaign. He later reneged on that promise.

Obama promised that there would be no pork or earmarks in the stimulus bill. Look here for how that worked out.

So if Obama publicly declares that he's against the Fairness Doctrine, that means that plans are already in motion to implement it. Of course, it will have another name, and the first step will be a small intrusion on the First Amendment. But rest assured, it's coming. You can count on Obama's words -- if you expect the opposite of what he says.
