"Obama's chief political strategist, David Axerlrod, announced earlier this week that the administration will push for a constitutional amendment to rollback free speech if his boss is re-elected in November.

""When we win, we will use whatever tools out there, including a constitutional amendment, to turn this back,"" Axlerod said on Wednesday. ""I understand the free speech argument, but when the Koch brothers can spend $400 million, more than the McCain campaign and the Republican Party spent last time, that's very concerning.""

""This has never been done before — in 235 years — to make it possible for the government to control political speech in this country — a truly radical, astonishing thing to say out loud even if you believed it,"" remarked Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday.

""America was built on free speech — the most important part of the Bill of Rights — and so we need to defend speech we don't like. And we certainly want to fight against those who are trying to shut us up,"" he said.

McConnell accused the Obama administration of using the the Federal Election Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Internal Revenue Service to muzzle its critics. He added that the tactic is reminiscent of Nixon's enemies list in the 1970s. White House Counsel John Dean said Nixon wanted to ""use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.""

In April, Rory Cooper wrote about Obama's ""Truth Team"" campaign website. He noted ""subtle differences between Obama's and Nixon's enemy lists. President Nixon kept his secret, and allegedly used the force of the government to punish adversaries. President Obama's list is open and designed to elicit public scorn, shame and rebuke. There is no current evidence the President has manipulated the federal machinery punitively. But the message remains clear, if you support a philosophical adversary, you will face some retribution.""

Cooper penned his commentary following remarks made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi and House Democrats have proposed a three tiered plan to ram through Congress what is known as the DISCLOSE Act. It would restrict the political speech of ""covered organizations,"" including most television and radio networks, newspapers, publishing houses, and think tanks.

Axlerod's remarks about the First Amendment reveal that the so-called Team Obama approach to silencing the political opposition is not particularly effective. It also reveals a brazen contempt for the Bill of Rights.
