Tell me it ain’t so!

Well, lookee here!

The Obama administration has asked Congress to extend three contentious provisions of the USA Patriot Act - a bill once described by President Obama as “shoddy” - and urged an appeals court to deny access to U.S. courts for detainees at a military prison in Afghanistan.

Can’t get enough
of that “shoddy” stuff…

Civil liberties groups immediately criticized both moves, which would extend Bush-era terrorism policies that have long been unpopular with Democrats.

In a letter made public Tuesday, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich wrote to Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, Vermont Democrat and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, asking Congress to reauthorize three portions of the Patriot Act that are set to expire at the end of the year.

Well, we might say that now that he’s in the hot seat himself, maybe B. Hussein Obama realizes that perhaps there were some good reasons for some of the Bush anti-tango policies.

Then, on the other hand,

The three portions permit roving wiretaps, the seizure of certain business records and the monitoring of suspected “lone wolf” terrorists. Mr. Weich said the administration is willing to consider modifications that provide additional privacy protections provided they do not undermine the effectiveness of the provisions.

roving wiretaps and the seizure of “certain business records” somehow go hand in hand with the kind of communistic government the Obama and Pelosi seem hell bent on delivering.

If Bush could use these provisions to protect us from terrorism, why can’t Obama use them to keep a weather eye on us in the event that there are conservative “subversives” afoot?

While we’re on the subject,

deny access to U.S. courts for detainees at a military prison in Afghanistan

Hey! Is that you, O?

Tell me it ain’t so!

    Except that Jack Bauer’s a patriot, and a true patriot would never do the Obamunist’s dirty work for him.

    I don’t think it’s the policy that bugs people as much as it is distrust for those in power. Obama likes the Patriot Act as long as he is the one in control. When others control it is when it becomes bad.

    And the problem I have with that is that I believe Obama’s more likely to abuse it than Bush ever would have.

    After he put up the web site at which people could “rat out” any websites they encountered that took umbrage with his healthcare bill, he sort of convinced me that he’s all about the same kind of control as the Politboro once was in the USSR. He needs to know who dares dispute his decrees, etc.

    For a laugh, Seth was telling me recently that he receives occasional emails (form letters) from the White House providing methods for citizens to “work together” with O and his administration to bring about the dubious agendas of his nibs.

    What next?

    “Learned all I need to know about Islam on 9/11″

    That’s exactly how I feel, though I actually had occupation-related reasons to feel that way long before Islam taught us all about itself 8 years ago.


    Like the takkiya provision in Islam, it was okay for Obama to lie to us infidels, during his campaign, as to his true intentions as president.
