Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose 2009
During World War II, if Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose had been broadcasting from the USA, FDR and the White House would certainly have called them out and responded to them by name. Back then, of course, Sally was forced to broadcast from Berlin, and Rose from Tokyo. Today, however, the United States has hundreds of outlets for subversive broadcasters, like Rush Limbaugh, who are doing their best to destroy America's capitalist system. Their extreme views --huge tax cuts for the rich, financial de-regulation, etc. -- which were put into place by the Bush administration, have virtually destroyed our economy. Now, Rush, Hannity, Savage, Malkin, etc., continue to broadcast far and wide their extremist views in an effort to stop Obama from rescuing the economy. At the very least, Obama and his staff have every right to call these people out and respond to them by name. Yesterday, the market went up by nearly 400 points. That may be a leading indicator that our country is finally starting to move away from the Bush economy into the Obama economy.
