Dems OK Destroying the Constitution

…I mean, they approved a bill which gives the White House leeway to monitor connecting overseas calls, and provides immunity for telecom companies who help US Intel track suspected terrorists.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate on Tuesday approved new rules for government eavesdropping on phone calls and e-mails, giving the White House much of the latitude it wanted and granting legal immunity to telecommunications companies that helped in the snooping after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks…

…The 68-29 Senate vote Tuesday to update the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act belied the nearly two months of stops and starts and bitter political wrangling that preceded it…

The Senate bill provides "fair and just liability protection to those private companies who have been sued for billions of dollars only because they are believed to have done the right thing and assisted the nation after the September 11th terrorist attacks," Bush said.


-Highlighting the massive hypocrisy of the Democratic Party on issues involving the war. When democrats were trying to gain political power in both the House and Senate, they decried such legislation to the point of endangering the lives of the American people. But now that they have that power (in large part because of the constant undermining of our national security) they are content in being (from their own rhetoric) a dictatorship reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

When Clinton did it (on Princess Diana, no less), he was a hero. When Democratic leadership does it, it's no big deal. But when Republicans do it… Bush is Hitler himself. -But hey, like I pointed out last year when the Dems took control:
Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss.
