You voted him in because you wanted change. You HATED Bush and his policies. You thought the reason's Bush had for warrantless wiretaps was weak and just a power grab.
But now you have single-party rule by socialist reformist Democrats. They want power over you in a way that makes George Orwell's 1984 look like freedom.
Obama's reason for warrantless wiretapping? The laws of the United States and the United States Constitution do not apply to him.
had something to say about Obama's new DOJ policy:
April 7th, 2009In Warrantless Wiretapping Case, Obama DOJ's New Arguments Are Worse Than Bush's
Commentary by Tim Jones
We had hoped this would go differently.
Friday evening, in a motion to dismiss Jewel v. NSA, EFF's litigation against the National Security Agency for the warrantless wiretapping of countless Americans, the Obama Administration's made two deeply troubling arguments.
[...]They argue that simply allowing the case to continue "would cause exceptionally grave harm to national security." As in the past, this is a blatant ploy to dismiss the litigation without allowing the courts to consider the evidence.[...]
[...]The DOJ claims that the U.S. Government is completely immune from litigation for illegal spying — that the Government can never be sued for surveillance that violates federal privacy statutes.[...]
[...]the Obama Adminstration has claimed that the government cannot be held accountable for illegal surveillance under any federal statutes.[...]
Is this the "change" you were "hoping" for? Obama's power grab makes Bush's look anemic. I didn't vote for Obama, but now he's ALL our problem.
