Seems like the Obama campaign doesn't just want to clamp down on criticism from without but also to control entirely the message from within- can't let those pesky voters know what Democrats plan after the election, eh?

Rep. Jose Serrano wanted to mention immigration in his speech at the DNC this week but the Obama campaign censored removed the reference.

Mr. Serrano’s experience is one that many convention speakers have had this week, and some are grumbling about it. While all presidential nominees try to put their own stamp on the convention, Democrats say Mr. Obama’s vetting team has been especially aggressive.

“They kept saying it was for space,” Mr. Serrano said. “They never said it was for content. They said they wanted it to be 280 words. But when you read it, they took out the meat of the message.”
