blackcatseye and your point is???? I said it was in 2008 and if you watch the video he is on the show talking about an FBI agent who consulted for the movie. What are you jabbering about exactly?

Well, I don't run the media. I don`t listen to conservative radio (too right wing) and I don`t watch FOX news (too one sided). But I have a memory. And like I said, I remember the sigh of relief when McCarthyism breathed it`s last breath. I also vividly remember the fear of Hoover`s tyrannical reign. And I don`t want to see that repeated. Not by conservatives and not by liberals. Not now. Not ever.
"don't pretend you`re not defending Obama simply because he`s a liberal."
I honestly don`t have a problem with agencies charged with my safety recording calls for evidence or leads of attacks so they can prevent them. I don`t now and I didn`t then. Who is president has nothing to do with it.
My problem is that it has been going on for over a decade and anybody knew that. Now all of a sudden there is conservative outrage. You may have disliked it the whole time but it certainly wasn`t all over conservative sites, and leading off conservative radio and FOX news when it happened under Bush.

H.G. Don't be an ass. I never said it was proposed by a liberal or passed by liberals. I said it was a bad idea. As a conservative, I question ANY time someone wants to pass this law or that law. I try to imagine a worst case scenario for it. An extreme abuse of it as it were. I don`t care who wrote the thing and neither should anyone else. A bad law is a bad law. Period. But don`t pretend you`re not defending Obama simply because he`s a liberal. That just insults everyone`s intelligence. If he`s wrong then goddammit, call him out on it. I did that with Bush, I did that with Reagan, and I certainly did that with Nixon. I admit I`ve done it more with Carter and Clinton (especially Clinton) but those were more political disagreements. This is moral. Goddammit, it`s personal! You should be appalled over this. So should everyone.
