By now we have all heard about Obama supporting the FISA renewal. He has really gone against the beliefs of his party, and I believe himself as well.
This really seems like a politics as usual move. I know campaigns can be crazy but I certainly hope that Obama sees how he is straying. The Republicans are going to beat on him as weak on terror no matter how he votes. I only hope he realizes this and goes with his "gut" because I believe that will lead him to vote against this bill.
After all, this bill is only going to give the Bush Administration permission to walk all over the Constitution. They have done that, are doing that, and will continue to do that regardless. The other disgusting attribute of this bill is what is effectively a blanket Presidential Pardon, delivered via the Congress, to protect the telecom giants from being held accountable for their own lack of ethics.
However, some Democrats are hard at work and have seen that this does not protect them from criminal charges. This is a bright light on the horizon. There may still be justice delivered for the American people and the bruised Constitution.
My final words for Senator Obama is; vote no and own your decision. It will pay its dues later on.
