Obama Signs Patriot Act Extension
For more than 2 years Barack Obama ripped and criticized then President Bush and the Republican party for the Patriot Act. Now that he is sitting in the Oval Office he apparently sees things differently, as very quietly Saturday afternoon while the world was focused on the earthquake in Chile and the possible tsunami waves to hit Hawaii, Japan and other places, Obama signed a one year extension to the Patriot Act that otherwise would have expired on Sunday. The view from the White House has obviously caused Obama to see the benefits of the Patriot Act out weigh the drawbacks. He certainly did not want his supporters to know his actions, and the fact of the matter is, that if it were not for Fox News, he would have done this in complete secrecy. I did a quick scan of the websites of MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CNN and CBS and Fox. Fox alone carried the story. Anyone else smell the stench coming from the media outlets that are in the pocket of this President and the Democratic party?
