Glenn Greenwald, as usual, says it better than I could on this one.
Telling Americans that we have to give up basic constitutional rights -- and allow rampant lawbreaking -- if we want to save ourselves from "the grave threats we face" sounds awfully familiar. He says he will work to remove amnesty from the bill, but once that fails, will vote for the "compromise." Obama has obviously calculated that sacrificing the rule of law and the Fourth Amendment is a worthwhile price to pay to bolster his standing a tiny bit in a couple of swing states.
Should I look forward to Obama's "Axis of Evil" speech too?
This is just too depressing for a Saturday Morning ... I am going back for a nap
