Obama’s FISA Shift

 | July 11, 2008 5:27 AM

Senator Obama’s FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) shift is getting quite a bit of news.  Liberals feel betrayed.  Personally I would have preferred Obama vote against the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 and it is great to see Ron Paul and his supporters rally against it.

A group of netroots bloggers and Ron Paul supporters joined together to form a bipartisan political action committee, Accountability Now, in order to raise money during a one day money bomb, which, according to The Wall Street Journal, will be used to fund advertisements against Democratic and Republican lawmakers who supported the retroactive immunity of the telecoms.

Personally I am more disheartened by the fact that John McCain chose not to vote at all.  He seems to have a disturbing trend of doing this on politically risky issues and then attacking his opponents on their voting records on such issues.  For example John McCain has chosen not to vote on many environmental issues and then he tries to portray himself as the Green Republican.
