I’m disappointed that Obama joined with the capitulators on the FISA issue. Telecoms should not get amnesty for breaking the law, and this bill allows that. Obama said he disagreed with that portion, but he should have shown some leadership and done more than disagree with it after the fact.
That said, of course I’m still voting for him. As an ex-conservative, I never came to this process expecting that a liberal would fulfill all my fantasies about a presidential candidate.
After all the damage Bush has done, it’s going to take a while to restore the laws and values of our republic. Obama’s not our savior, and most of us have figured that out a long time ago. Roll up your sleeves. You’re going to have to do some work too if you want your civil liberties.
