I dont't get it.  I thought the patriot act was facist?  the president is going to have one hell of a time getting the looney liberals in charge of congress to touch this one.

Obama stares down Patriot Act criticism

The Obama administration is standing firm in its support of several George W. Bush-era Patriot Act powers in the face of sharp criticism from civil rights groups, liberal Democrats and a Dec. 31 deadline to extend key provisions of the bill.


The Justice Department recently reiterated its request for Congress to extend with few changes key provisions of the Patriot Act: sections that allow roving wiretaps on multiple phones, seizing of business records and a never-used authority to spy on non-Americans suspected of being terrorists even though they have no connection to a recognized terrorist group.

I couldn't remember exactly where obama was on the patriot act, so I went back and looked.  the reason that I couldn't remember where he was is because he was all over the place.  candidate obama was fiercely and harshly critical of the patriot act.  it was one more reason that george bush was satan.  however, senator obama voted to reauthorize it in 2006.  like a lot of things, he gets to play this one both ways.
