Is The President Issuing New Threats?

In my few years of life (haha), I can’t remember ever hearing an elected President issuing ominous threats like this one does.  Did I hear correctly?

“If you misrepresent the plan, we will call you out.” – Pres. Barack Obama in health care speech to both houses of Congress, 9-9-09

This sounds very ominous to me.  The misrepresentation he speaks of is a matter of opinion and interpretation.  Last I knew, we were still a nation with a 1st amendment…which states…Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Where it says Congress, in my opinion that means ANY government entity or person.

We are not a dictatorship…yet.  Mr. Obama should learn to respect the people of our country, whether they agree with him or not.
