Democrats spit on their own party once again.?
Can you believe the audacity of this group we've elected? They complain about how fascist the patriot act is and how fascist extraordinary rendition and warrant-less wiretapping is, then:
In 2006 they get control of congress and grant immunity to the telecom companies for giving data without a warrant under FISA.
And now they vote to EXTEND the patriot act, and blame it on republicans.
I don't get it. It was set to expire. They could have done nothing and it would have fixed itself. They blame a republican filibuster, but WHY NOT LET THE REPUBLICANS FILIBUSTER, they will look stupid and the thing will expire.
How can the democrats not be out protesting in the streets over this. For years they have complained about the evil fascist neocons and then when they get in power they continue doing the same thing. We still have extraordinary rendition and warrantless wiretaps, patriot act etc.
DEMOCRATS: We know the republicans want the patriot act and that's bad. But what excuse do you have for these officials you've elected that support the patriot act? Why are you not up in arms?
Dems have had controll of congress since 2006, and control of the executive since 09, WHERE IS THE CHANGE. It's all a lie.
