First Amendment - Highly Overrated?

Below is a video clip that's 22 minutes in length, but don't bother watching it all. Advance to 15:37 and watch 5 seconds of it, where White House Chief of Staff tells a reporter for Washington Life Magazine "The First Amendment is highly over-rated" while he arrived at The White House Correspondents Association Dinner in 2009. Over-rated? Really? Was Rahm joking, or is this what he really believes?

(Apologies that apparently you have to wait for the entire video file to load before you can advance to that point in the video.)

John, are you joking or do you not know these people? I would suggest watching some documentaries on Obama by Alex Jones. You might also want to do some research on Rahm on the Internet. You won't be pleased with what you find.

I'm not surprised, considering the source. I'm sure there are a lot of our rights that he thinks are trivial and worthy of trampling.

John, stick to photography topics, you do them well. Let Fox News do the political mudslinging. Posts like this will turn off more than half your readers.
