    Remember how the Left beat Bush half to death over the Patriot Act? Now here these hypocrites are taking that law to insane limits. And since they and the IRS appear to be such busy-bodies, there's no telling what inane purpose they've contrived to justify their actions.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    She doesn't exactly seem ate up with bright (or integrity either), but attention has now been drawn to her, and so she will be watched. Everybody's always interested in an example of the Peter Principle.

    Shocking that would be!!!

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So give us an alternative and we'll talk. Until then, stop blaming Obama, and start blaming a system that believes we should only be allowed to have the choice of a)having our rights crapped on and b)having our rights crapped on.
    When Bush did it, it was criminal. When Obama does it, its 'sorely lacking'.

    You're still blaming someone else. It's pathetic.

    Obama: No warrantless wiretaps if you elect me | News Blogs - CNET News

    My job this morning is to be so persuasive...that a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Barack," he told a crowd of about 300 Ivy Leaguers--and, by the looks of it, a handful of locals who managed to gain access to what was supposed to be a students-only event.

    For one thing, under an Obama presidency, Americans will be able to leave behind the era of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and "wiretaps without warrants," he said.
    Now he's acting like a Fascist. Why are you supporting Fascism? Explain yourself.

    I would hope at some point we who lean right and left which have a problem with this could put our partisanship aside and band together against things like this. Unfortunately, there's too much knee-jerk to criticisms of Bush and Obama. Both are in the wrong here, and there's nothing wrong with criticizing someone you may ideology agree with most of the time when they do something you clearly find wrong.
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
