A Response to Spy chief says wiretap powers needed (National).
It is unbelievable to me that Democrats could let this president get away with anything anymore. It surely seems like the passing of “The Patriot Act” which slipped through their congressional approval by accident would have them wake up to be more careful about approving anything that they have not read and understood fully. This is the Congress of the United States and I am sure there are no Americans think they should sign anything unless they are fully aware of any and all provisions that are included within any bill.
They have been given every reason to not trust this administration and knowing that should have made them aware that they may need to be more careful in the future, yet in this article we can see it has happened again. It read,
“Congress agreed to the new provisions, but set them to expire in six months. Since the rushed passage, however, many Democrats have had second thoughts and now believe the new provisions violate long-held privacy protections for U.S. citizens.”
So now what? Are you going to apologize again? I do not accept your apology for this. I am tired of excuses. You have already made the same mistakes and have been fully aware that this administration uses these methods to get their way. You are part of the problem. How can you take a job as important as the one you have been blessed to have and mistreat your authority by simply signing whatever is put in front of you? You should all be ashamed of yourself as it has been as much your fault as President Bush’s. Maybe more so, as you should have known better, where as the president can still hold on to the simple excuse of being undereducated.
I do not accept your apologies and expect you to stop giving this president his way on any and every issue. The press this week is trying to say that President If any of you had some decency he would have been impeached a long time ago. If you look at the possibility of Bush being an enemy combatant you begin to see what a superb job he has actually been doing by using every weakness in our laws and policies against the people of the United States and helping only foreign nations.
Where is the press? Where are the questions asking why the Congress thinks it is ok to sign bills into law without fully reading and understanding it? Stop becoming part of the problem and become part of the solution. Ask real questions and expose this administration, and corrupted officials. Do your jobs!
