Obama Is No Better Than The Rest Of Them

We Should Have Known, Really

We Should Have Known, Really

The US Senate just passed the immoral, illegal, unconstitutional FISA “Amendment” bill, which, if you haven’t been following along, includes retroactive immunity from civil prosecution for telecommunications companies that knowingly broke the law, allowing members of the Bush gang to basically route all communications through their systems directly to the NSA without warrant or legal sanction of any kind, an utter violation of the 4th Amendment as well as more than two centuries of settled law.

Throughout the process of the passage of this evil piece of filth through the Congressional colon, Democratic presidential candidate Barack H. Obama claimed he would filibuster the bill rather than accede to its passage, a feather in his cap, to our minds. But yesterday, as had been telegraphed for days prior, he turned around and voted for the immoral, lawless bill.

While not exactly Obama supporters, we had been holding out a slim reed of hope that maybe, just maybe, the charming Illinois politician would be marginally less bad than the evil, clueless John McCain. After all, he has been less strident than McCain on Iraq, and made approving noises about the recent bare 5-4 Supreme Court decision preserving a scrap of constitutional protection of habeus corpus. Even if the passage of the bill was “predetermined” as Russ Feingold said, he could have stood on the Senate floor and made a speech decrying the bill, even if he still felt like he had to vote for it. For an example, see Ron Paul’s record statement on the House bill.

But he didn’t. Obama is turning out to be a typical, immoral, evil liar

    Obama caught on early that the American sheeple don’t care about what you do, only in what you say. As well as simply saying saying what they want to hear, he also knows to shuts his mouth and let others around him make stupid gaffs such as the Jesse Jackson remarks from the other day. So to talk about change yet preserve the status quo is really no big deal for him. Now tell me again why we’re all surprised?

    In a way, I don’t even blame him, primarily, he’s just a political climber aspiring to win the big prize in the world’s biggest popularity contest. And he IS still significantly less evil than McCain. But this is just more business as usual, “change” be damned.
