The FISA Capitulation Vote, Barack Obama, and These Orwellian Times

Update: Bush is on CNN crowing about the passage of his FISA bill. Obama did not vote 'present.' As promised, Barack Obama voted for Bush's FISA bill. Hillary Rodham Clinton voted against the shredding of the Bill of Rights. Final vote: YAYS 69 NAYS 28. Bush thanks you and the rest of the spineless Dems, Senator Obama.

If you can believe it, there are actually some Democrats who are refusing to join presumptive 'leader' Barack Obama in his FISA Capitulation vote to continue the Bush policy of shredding the Bill of Rights.

No word yet on how Hillary Rodham Clinton will vote, but Newsday reports:

Sen. Charles Schumer and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are bucking their party's presidential nominee Barack Obama by opposing a White House-backed warrantless wiretapping bill expected to be voted on today. . Between 20 to 30 other Democrats are defying Obama on the vote, including top Obama supporter Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

Barack Obama promises that his vote to shred the Bill of Rights is not about politics but rather about his sincere belief that shredding the Bill of Rights is a wise and necessary move in order to protect we the people!

Big Tent Democrat, goddess love him, calls the presumptive nominee on the orwellian bullshit:

"[I]f Obama believes the BS he said about the FISA Capitulation bill, then he is not fit to be President. . If Barack Obama really believes
this about the FISA Capitulation bill, then he is as dangerous as George W. Bush."
