Interesting, but sad, that the rank and file of both parties in Capitol Hill are scrambling to find excuses to excuse and rationalize the increased spying on Americans by the National Security Agency and the federal government.
Republicans who would love to use the revelations against President Barack Obama are caught between the stereotypical rock and hard place because many of the abuses started and thrived under the despotic rule of GOP President George W. Bush.
Obama could have curtailed the abuses of power by Bush under the rights-robbing USA Patriot Act. In fact, he promised to do so in the 2008 Presidential campaign but the great black hope from Chicago proved to be just as big a liar as those who have proceeded him in the Oval Office.
So Democrats now face the dilemma of supporting their President or doing what’s right to move and stop the abuses of the Constitution by Obama. No drama there. Members of Congress seldom do what’s right. Such actions are simply not political.
So the abuses will continue and probably increase under a flawed, corrupt political system that seldom, if ever, put the needs of the country or its citizens above political agendas.
Obama and his lying throngs of thugs at the National Security Agency, Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation are doing what those in positions of power do best: Scrambling to cover their asses when caught abusing power and ignoring the rights of Americans.
The current President took the actions of a the previous corrupt administration and carried the abuse of power to new levels. Like the minister who became an embarassment to Obama during the 2008 election, Obama is saying “God damn America” and to hell with the Constitution and freedoms that once defined this nation.
George W. Bush was a disgrace to this nation.
So is Barack Obama.
Maybe both belong in jail.
