Dems Vote To Remove Election Obstacle

The renewal of the Patriot Act was passed today in the Senate by a vote of 89-10. This removes an obstacle to the Democrats for the upcoming elections. They had to get this passed and out of the way so that it would not be a festering sore in their woefully inadequate defense of our country. The Democrats fought hard to defeat the Patriot Act and agreed to an extension. Republicans made a mistake by not making the extension longer so the Democrat’s opposition would be front and center around campaign time.

The Democrats have turned up the rhetoric with regard to national security. They are opposing the port deal, as are many Republicans and they are claiming it is because of national security. These are the same folks who told us George Bush doles out fear and exaggerates the terror threat to keep Americans afraid. They know that most Americans trust Republicans with national security and they are trying to look like they too can be trusted with that very item.

The only problem is that the Democrats oppose any measure that will help national security. They oppose the Patriot Act and the only reason they voted for it is because they do not want Americans reminded that they tried to kill the anti-terror measure. They will now focus on the port issue and try to trump it up into a huge threat. The UAE deal must be a good one because former President Clinton advised Dubai on how to deal with the issue. He knows it is a good deal but his wife is up for reelection and she needs to pander to the unions.

Senator Feingold had this to say, something I agree with him on:

“Americans want to defeat terrorism and they want the basic character of this country to survive and prosper,” he said. “They want both security and liberty, and unless we give them both – and we can if we try – we have failed.”

He uses this in reference to the Patriot Act, I in regard to his party. Americans do want to defeat terrorism and they want the basic character of this country to survive. If we leave Democrats in office we will not have security and liberty and we will have failed. We need to rid ourselves of the RINOs as well. Keep that in mind in November.
