He just won't stop, will he?
Bush once again waves the bloody shirt and demands further Big Brother powers... for our own good, of course:
FORT MEADE, Md. — President Bush said Wednesday he wants Congress to expand and make permanent a law that temporarily gives the government more power to eavesdrop without warrants on suspected foreign terrorists.
Without such action, Bush said, "our national security professionals will lose critical tools they need to protect our country."
"The threat from Al Qaeda is not going to expire in 135 days," he said, "so I call on Congress to make the Protect America Act permanent."
He also urged lawmakers to expand the law, not restrict it.
and any guesses what the goddamn Dems will do - ?
All Bush has to do is, like last time, whine that there's an impending terrorist threat against D.C. but it can be avoided if this legislation is passed right NOW NOW NOW.
And they'll pass it. 'Cause looking TOUGH AND MACHO is evidently going to appeal more to the American public come Election Day than standing up for what few tattered rags of democracy and liberty still exist in this country, and patriotism is nothing anymore but a fig leaf for militarism.
