Democrats Have Just Handed Republicans a Huge Win: Stopping NSA Spying Now a Republican Platform

Democrats Refused to Stop Worst Bush Policies, and Have Made Things Even Worse … So Republicans Make Hay Against Sell-Out Democrats

Obama, Feinstein and other high-level Democrats have supported NSA spying, even though the American people hate it.

True progressives like Glenn Greenwald (and here) and Jonathan Turley (and here) have repeatedly slammed Democrats for being hypocritical – loudly criticizing Bush for authorizing NSA spying, but then defending Obama for doing the exact same thing – and for placing party over principle, personality over the rule of law.

The Democrats’ hypocrisy has just caught up with them …

Specifically, Time notes that the Republican Party has just made ending NSA’s domestic call records program an official Republican position.

Remember, Bush started the bailout of banks, redistribution of wealth to the fatcats, waging unnecessary wars for peripheral reasons, cracking down on protest and dissent, and other idiotic policies.

But Obama not only refused to impeach Bush and Cheney for their crimes against the Constitution (interestingly, it might not be too late),  but he’s ramped up all of these horrible policies (and here).

In other words, the party which started mass surveillance will make  hay against the party which criticized it because the latter has not only continued it, but has substantially increased spying and made it much worse.

Heck of a job, Democratic leadership …
