What, Me Change?

The more things (like Obama) change, the more they stay the same. Again I ask Obama supporters, what is there to like about him?


Waiting until after the vote to take a position on the bill [that will give the executive even more power to spy on Americans], Obama has finally come forward and issued a statement – looks like Obama reversed his prior strong opposition to both retroactive immunity for criminal acts by telecoms and expanded domestic spying powers. According to Glenn Greenwald at Salon:http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/

“Barack Obama got around to issuing a statement and — citing what he calls “the grave threats that we face” — he just announced that he supports this warrantless eavesdropping and telecom amnesty bill:

“Given the grave threats that we face, our national security agencies must have the capability to gather intelligence and track down terrorists before they strike, while respecting the rule of law and the privacy and civil liberties of the American people. . .”

I’d like to suggest that Obama realizes that he has a very good chance of becoming the next president and doesn’t want anyone to hold him to his silly rhetoric about change.

    On the evidence, he can’t seem to sell out on liberty or foreign policy fast enough. All we are left with is a few troops redeployed from Iraq to Iran, er, I mean Afghanistan, and higher taxes going into what could be one mother of a recession. To think I actually entertained the idea of not writing in Ron Paul!
