A leftist gladly accepts and runs with the new powers claimed by his “conservative” predecessor:
In a stunning defense of President George W. Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program, President Barack Obama has broadened the government’s legal argument for immunizing his Administration and government agencies from lawsuits surrounding the National Security Agency’s eavesdropping efforts.
In fact, a close read of a government filing last Friday reveals that the Obama Administration has gone beyond any previous legal claims put forth by former President Bush.
This is no surprise, at least, not to paleoconservatives. Obama’s agenda is nothing but the next phase of the Neocon agenda to centralize power and globalize the American nation. The pro-war, any war crowd cheered on their Beloved Leader Bush when he claimed the power to authorize warrantless wiretaps. I wonder how they’ll react now that a leftist president asserts the same?
Or will they become unpatriotic conservatives?
