Live and let spy
If you dont already read Ann Coulter you should. Sure, she can be bombastic, obnoxious and shrill. Like thats a bad thing. Her latest is on the mark as usual. Money qoutes;
"Among the things that war entails are: killing people (sometimes innocent), destroying buildings (sometimes innocent) and spying on people (sometimes innocent). That is why war is a bad thing. But once a war starts, it is going to be finished one way or another, and I have a preference for it coming out one way rather than the other. "
"After 9/11, any president who was not spying on people calling phone numbers associated with terrorists should be impeached for being an inept commander in chief. "
And the best for last...
"Of course, this is assuming I'm talking to people from the world of the normal. In the Democrats' world, there are two more options. Violate no one's civil liberties and get used to a lot more 9/11s, or the modified third option, preferred by Sen. John D. Rockefeller: Let the president do all the work and take all the heat for preventing another terrorist attack while you place a letter expressing your objections in a file cabinet as a small parchment tribute to your exquisite conscience. "
To recap, Carter, Bush 1, Clinton and Bush 2 all use the same powers. It is a scandal when Bush 2 does it. The Dems are in for a bloodbath in November. Cheers, knewshound
