Freedom of speech means freedom for President alone to speak

It appears that the First Amendment applies only to the President of the United States. Everyone else must shut up and listen:

The ACLU is crying foul after a federal court upheld the ejection of several Denver residents from a public speech by President Bush, The Denver Post reported.

The American Civil Liberties Union brought the lawsuit against three White House staffers, charging them with illegally removing three people from the taxpayer-funded event because of an anti-war bumper sticker on their car.

Leslie Weise and Alex Young are two of the three people, referred to as the "Denver three," removed from the 2005 event before President Bush started speaking.

Chief Judge Wiley Y. Daniel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado dismissed the case, arguing that Weise and Young had no constitutional right to be present.

"President Bush had the right, at his own speech, to ensure that only his message was conveyed," Daniel wrote. "When the president speaks, he may choose his own words."

My guess is that this judge would probably rule further (now that Obama is President) that free speech applies only to Republican presidents. Yet, he was a Clinton nominee.
