Countdown – Obama's stance on FISA

Jonathan Alter said something very interesting. He said that “currently we have been operating in an unconstitutional environment. In clear violation of the 4th amendment.”

Update: I found a nice post on FISA.

BTW, Glenn Greenwald will be on my radio show tomorrow morning at 9 am EST. He has gotten into a dust up with Keith Olbermann over Olbermann’s continued support of Obama’s stance on FISA.

  1. Nah, this doesn’t restore the Constitution,but the opposite; like Alter said, Obama’s a legislator, so why he’s acting like a judge deciding that telcoms are innocent from crime.

  2. I have supported Obama for some time now, but if he votes for this dangerous, unnecessary, and unAmerican legislation, that can change. Taking liberals for granted is foolish when we can vote Green, vote Nader, or leave the top of the ballot blank.

    I am so sick and tired of being betrayed by Democrats. This legislation is absolutely unacceptable under any circumstances.

  3. We are never going to agree with someone all of the time. I agree that liberals have been let us down rather frequency over the pass couple of years.

  4. Encompassed–

    True, Obama is a legislator–but he is running to be the President. Does that make things different at all? I’m not sure–I’m just proposing the question.

    I hope Senator Dodd and Senator Feingold can succeed with their filibuster.

    Regardless, I think an Obama Presidency would go a long ways to restoring the Constitution–even if this piece of legislation doesn’t.

  5. CB –

    I agree 100%. Hell, I’m happily married and I don’t agree with my wife 100% of the time. I will not agree with Obama either 100% of the time.
