House Democrats Save the World! (for now) Dems' Freedom Card v. GOP's Fear Card: Constitution v. Cowardice
Who wins this hand may depend on you. Contacted your Representative yet? Here's a new C&L video that parodies the latest fearmongering efforts by the House Republicans because the Democratic Party refused to grant immunity to the Telecoms. If the GOP truly cared about the safety of America then they would have passed the bill and sent it on to the president. Instead, they threw a hissy fit---staged a photo-op---and whined to the press. They looked like insignificant little children playing with our national security. The clock is ticking away at the GOP's foolishness.

"In a stunning display of courage today, House Democrats have upheld their constitutional responsibilities by allowing the Protect America Act to expire. "

Glenn Greenwald writes:

It expired because George Bush threatened to veto any extensions and House Republicans unanimously voted against any extension. Our blood, to be gushing shortly like a volcanic eruption, will be on their loving, protective hands.

All the GOP has left is the fear card, and that sucker is wore slam out. Bush’s trusty Supreme Court has already seen fit to throw up a firewall for the telecoms, so why is it the Republicans are still insisting on holding up the FISA bill? It’s because the Republican Party will do anything they can to keep whatever secrets are hidden in those NSA spy rooms from ever incriminating their President, even if it does mean putting our country at more risk to do so. That’s why.
