Democrats Have Just Handed Republicans a Huge Win: Stopping NSA Spying Now a Republican Platform

Democrats Refused to Stop Worst Bush Policies, and Have Made Things Even Worse … So Republicans Make Hay Against Sell-Out Democrats

Obama, Feinstein and other high-level Democrats have supported NSA spying, even though the American people hate it.

True progressives like Glenn Greenwald (and here) and Jonathan Turley (and here) have repeatedly slammed Democrats for being hypocritical – loudly criticizing Bush for authorizing NSA spying, but then defending Obama for doing the exact same thing – and for placing party over principle, personality over the rule of law.

The Democrats’ hypocrisy has just caught up with them …

Specifically, Time notes that the Republican Party has just made ending NSA’s domestic call records program an official Republican position.

Remember, Bush started the bailout of banks, redistribution of wealth to the fatcats, waging unnecessary wars for peripheral reasons, cracking down on protest and dissent, and other idiotic policies.

But Obama not only refused to impeach Bush and Cheney for their crimes against the Constitution (interestingly, it might not be too late),  but he’s ramped up all of these horrible policies (and here).

In other words, the party which started mass surveillance will make  hay against the party which criticized it because the latter has not only continued it, but has substantially increased spying and made it much worse.

Heck of a job, Democratic leadership …

    Californians Have Just Handed Surfers a Huge Wave……

  • Well said.

    This could lead to a repeat of the 2010 ass-kicking the dems inflicted on themselves by following Obama following W into the swamp.

    What kind of nonsense is this? Both parties are gangs competing to prostrate themselves before the owner/ruler class. There is absolutely no difference. The entire NSA episode is another dramatic production that hides the corrupt monster corporations that spy relentlessly, and produce and manufacture most of the kit and code the NSA uses. I’d be more concerned with the dozen or other “security” agencies that folks actually know about. The Bill of Rights was never intended to be taken seriously. Not in a country that has it’s own gestapo.

    welcome to the jew world order

    “I’ll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. ‘I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.’ ‘I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.’ ‘Hey, wait a minute, there’s one guy holding out both puppets!’” – Bill Hicks

    the guy holding both puppets = organized jewish power

    A populist topic, the Repugs will do nothing in the end.
