Ben Franklin is Rolling Over in his Grave

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin

Words from one of the most enlightened and pragmatic of our forefathers mean nothing to Obama. He thinks that he knows better than this very wise man. After all, what good is a 4th Amendment if it gets in the way of positioning oneself politically to appeal to the right?

Keeping one’s word? That also means very little. Once you hoodwink the folks into believing you it’s time to move on. Screw em! Who else are they going to vote for? Certainly not that old man that will vote the exact same way.

And so it goes. On into perpetuity. There is no new politics of hope. It is just some fancy slogan that makes people believe and thus support you. It has exactly as much meaning as the phrase A Thousand Points of Light. A slogan that the elder Bush admitted meant absolutely nothing. A staffer wrote it and it sounded good. So they kept it and attempted to make it seem like it was a political strategy. A force to unite the country.

Move over Papa Bush. You don’t know who you are messing with here. Barack is the king of the Hoodwinkers. No doubt about that.

Here is how he justified his betrayal of our Constitution.

The bill has changed. So I don’t think the security threats have changed, I think the security threats are similar. My view on FISA has always been that the issue of the phone companies per se is not one that overrides the security interests of the American people.

Go ahead an watch him say it yourself. If you have a strong stomach that is. I thought that shit was supposed to come out of one’s ass.
