Why are democrats afraid of honest debate about Obama's and Congress's failure to get anything done? Censor?

Update:

Hey that's a great summary Bobby...you must work in the Obama censorship Bureau

Update 2:

Your answer shouldn't have been censored by a democrat Phil, so I will reprint it:

Because liberals lose in the arena of ideas.

They win in the area of name calling, impugning, censoring, black listing...

    WE already had anti discrimination legislation.

    Environmental

    Feb. 21 2009 – Obama signs a mercury reduction pact with 140 other nations. The policy reverses roles with George Bush and sets mandatory requirements by the United States. (source)

    Obama signed it, did he write it?

    Mar. 30 2009 – Obama signs the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009, which serves to protect two million acres of land and creates a new system of land conservation for the Bureau of Land Management. (source)

    May 19 2009 – Obama teams up with the auto industry to raise the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards to an average of 35.5 mpg by 2016. The program is reported to save up to 1.8 billion barrels of oil or 900 million tons of greenhouse gases. (source)

    He didn't team up with anyone, he TOOK OVER THE AUTO COMPANIES.

    Foreign Policy

    April 2 2009 – Obama helps form a compromise between Presidents of France (Sarkozy) and China (Jintao) over making tax havens more transparent. The two Presidents were in a “heated” argument previous to Obama’s intervention. (source)

    THIS IS FUNNY, Obama's ACORN should have been stopped from giving advice HERE on how to cheat on your taxes, and many of Obama's appointees don't know how to do their taxes either, perhaps he ought to come home and fix his own problems instead of the telling the world what to do.

    Government Reform

    Jan. 27 2009 – Administration tells Citigroup bank it is “unacceptable” to pay for a $42 million dollar luxury jet when they have received $45 billion in bailouts from taxpayers. (source)

    I find it unacceptable for our president and his wife to take numerous trips in 8 months costing the American taxpayers millions so he can have a night out on the town, or so Michelle can go shopping in Paris.

    Feb. 19 2009 – Bans the exception of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars from accounting the deficit. This results in a 2.5 trillion dollar increase in calculated deficit to the United States. (source)

    Feb. 23 2009 – Announces Earl Devaney to oversee the oversight of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Mr. Devaney worked as a Secret Service agent who exposed lobbyist corruption in the Department of the Interior. (source)

    Obama rewarded many lobbyists even when he said he wouldn't pander to him, he does it all the time. He is all about waste and fraud and rewarding his buddies and pals with our tax monies.

    Mar. 9 2009 – Lifts ban on embryonic stem cell research. A major move in changing the politics of research and science in the United States. (source)

    There has not been any progress in showing that a stem cell is any better than any other DNA cell...no scientific evidence at all.

    May 22, 2009 – Creates a credit card bill of rights. Limits unwarranted spending and gives consumers more options to pay their bills on time. It has been debated if this will negatively affect the industry. (source)

    People should learn to stay out of debt and if they want to borrow money, they should learn to read the fine print.

    May 22, 2009 – Tries to curb wasteful spending by the Pentagon on the defense budget by signing the Weapons System Acquisition Reform Act. Intended to price contracts and budgets lower; may potentially save billions of dollars in defense. (source)

    Yeah, if he continues to cut defenses all over the world, pretty soon we won't be able to defend ourselves anymore.

    What makes you think the democrats are afraid of honest debate ?

    What I see is a congress totally dominated by democrats who even with solid majorities ,can't get anything done . But I don't see them afraid to talk. They need to stop talking and actually do some governing before they all get voted out .

    What are they afraid of ?

    Because then they have to come to terms with the fact that they voted for a racist, God hating communist. Who is only out to promote his own Islamic militant black agenda and gain control of this country's money, and religious freedom! That's why he canceled the National prayer day for the Christians but allowed the Islamic nation to have theirs yesterday at the white house! He wasn't even born in this country , he doesn't know how many states we have and now is when everything is starting to finally leak out. All the Liberals can do now is either hide or claim they are a moderate which we all know is a cowardly Liberal!

    Well Because They don't want to Argue their Leadership or Lose their Jobs in the Next Election which is 2010, What Republicans Need to do Is to Keep their Cool, Show some Respect, and Not Created Lies and Distortion that's how to gain Back Power.
