I say this stuff is overblown. The president can still remove those additions later on, right? I don't like either party but let`s be straight here. This time it`s the republicans who screwed us, tacking those lines in the first place.

@Gerry: Very good point about how Obama could have used the opportunity to have ensured an election win. But I suppose (I guess?) the offending provisions might not have been in the bill in the first place if he and his administration weren't pushing for it. Then again, Lindsey Graham (the R senator from SC) seems to have really wanted to be able to take away the rights of due process from U.S. citizens accused of terrorism. So, yes, I think you`re right: If Obama had been a different (and better) president, this could have been a HUGE opportunity to distinguish himself.

This is much ado about nothing. The NDAA is being completely misrepresented by paranoids and wingnuts.

Hopefully I can flee the country before they ban emigration. I imagine taking a raft to Cuba wouldn't be very fun.
