What am I talking about? Well, warrantless spying lives on in the Obama age and we all know that the left hated these violations of our rhts when Boosh-Cimpy-McHitler did them:
U.S. spies can rest easy knowing that the nation’s warrantless wiretapping program — secretly employed by the President George W. Bush administration in the wake of the 2001 terror attacks — won’t expire at year’s end.
That’s because Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) said Wednesday he would lift his procedural hold that bars the Senate from voting on the FISA Amendments Act, which the President Barack Obama administration maintains is its top national-security priority. The only real issue is for how many years the spy bill will be extended for and, according to Wyden, whether any transparency or privacy protections will be written into the spy program that Congress codified in 2008.
Other than that, it’s a done deal.
Apparently when done by Team Obama, stuff like this which heralded the coming fascist state isn’t such a big deal and deserves nothing more than some harsh words. Even the ACLU seems to only be playing games at this point. I know! It was bad when Boosh did it because he wanted to catch terrorists. Obama wants to catch enemies of the state, and since this ability can be used to deal with those pesky conservatives – which are far more dangerous than the silly religious haters that the left empathizes with – this renewal isn’t such a bad idea.
If it was not for double standards……
