Like me, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks is not at all happy with Democrats, Hillary Clinton and especially Barack Obama on the FISA capitulation.
Here’s the story: about half of the Democrats in the House caved yesterday and voted with Republicans to give the big telecom companies retroactive immunity for breaking the law and wiretapping us – potentially any of us – without warrants. This illegal wiretapping started before 9/11 so it has nothing to do with terrorism. Barack Obama is going along with it. Hillary hasn’t said a thing about it. There is no leadership, only capitulation.
You really really should watch this:
If you can’t beat the most unpopular president of all time in a simple legislative fight like this, how can you claim to be a strong and effective leader?
