With the Progressive blogsofear up in arms over the House‘s passage of Bush‘s FISA bill, and even more incensed at Obama‘s essential support for same, I am reminded of how the Dem leadership caved on the Protect America Act, with rumors that from behind the scenes the Administration was warning of an imminent 9/11 scale attack. And how if that if happened, the Dems would be blamed.
Newsweek‘s new poll has McCain behind by 15. Yes, polls at this stage are unreliable. But who doesn’t think that the Rethugs will do ANYTHING to keep control of the Executive Branch, and most especially the Attorney General’s office to head off any post-Bush indictments.
Not ignoring all the arguments made against this atrocious bill thus far, just surveying the political battlefield before the biggest battle begins.
