      The excuses for Obama's behavior have long since passed the point of predictability neccessary to qualify as an absurd production of Kabuki Theater.

      •  No (8+ / 0-)

        All you have is personal attacks on "Dear Obama". It's hard to be more condescendingly snide that that. Someone actually comes up with a solution and you poohpooh it with your usual condescendingly snide attacks.

        Damn, but Al Giordano was right.

          how that would make my snide addressing of Obama look?

          But sadly - and not surprisingly - you don't.

          -- Obama's NSA is out of control with its spying
          -- The FISA Court is a rubber stamp

          One would expect a (D) President to champion reform, no?  

          And even if Obama isn't the one to initially push for reform, now that such reform has been introduced by a (D) and (R) - one would expect that our Civil Liberties are important enough to warrant attention from the President and head of the Democratic Party, right?

          Now if I see Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Feinstein and other leaders of the Democratic Party begin to champion and use their power to push for reform.. then I will applaud them and sing their praises on fighting for our Civil liberties.

          Though I really don't expect them to do anything above a whisper, if that.  And that should speak volumes.

      everyone this important Act and which Congress Critters are supporting it, demonstrating the support to protect our Civil Liberties this bill is getting from the head-honchos of the (D) Party.

      But alas, instead of providing the information I requested, you decide it's just a video game.

      Shocked & Chagrined, I am.

      But not surprised.

        You tjhought nothing.  Just bs to play out your game.

        I sent you to Congressman's Conyers diary.  

        But I'm being sucked in to your need for a flame war.  I have real life.  Have fun playing a game on  a blog and telling yorself it is real.

          Obama and the Dem Leaders are fighting for our rights.

          Don't blame me for their failure to do so.

          And I am 100% certain that our Constitutional Scholar will jump at the opportunity to reform the Patriot Act and FISA.

          And if he doesn't?  Or our Dem leaders show no interest in reigning in the NSA?

          That should help to raise your awareness of what policies are being pursued by our Dem Leaders.
