If true, the Obama/Holder DOJ’s gathering of two months worth of AP phone records is a flagrant violation of the Fourth Amendment.
However, this is not why I write.
Those who will scream the loudest about this are those on the right who paved the way for it with their endless trust in his predecessor, Duh-bya.
For eight years, I tried to tell these people that their president was a reckless spender, a socialist and a tyrant who had nothing but contempt for our liberty. And I did so until I was blue in the face.
These people looked the other way while Duh-bya, along with a Republican House and Senate majority, outspent Klinton by $1 trillion per year and added $5 trillion to the debt. And now they complain about Obama’s fiscal recklessness … even though every dollar he has spent since January 2011 has been spent with the blessing of a Republican House..
They were in total denial when Duh-bya and the Dumbos passed the Medicare prescription drug benefit. This was a massive lurch in the direction of the Obamacare plan they hate so much.
Comes now the revelation of the AP wiretapping scandal, and guess who has their whitey-tighties in a wad: the Obama-hating Right.
In the fall of 2001, immediately after 9/11, it was these same people who gladly accepted the Patriot Act. They told us that we had to disregard the Fourth Amendment in order to “go after the terrorists.” And they implicitly trusted that Duh-bya would not abuse these powers.
Again, I warned them that these powers would one day be inherited by another president. Very likely this new president would be someone they hated and who would only augment these abuses of power.
