Well, Obama Really Believes in Big Brother

So this doesn't surprise me that bill that would give president emergency control of Internet is being drafted and considered.

Of course the whole concept is shocking because it is a massive intrusion into private industry.
A Senate source familiar with the bill compared the president's power to take control of portions of the Internet to what President Bush did when grounding all aircraft on Sept. 11, 2001. The source said that one primary concern was the electrical grid, and what would happen if it were attacked from a broadband connection.
I think the analogy is somewhat suspect.
