Obama and FISA (support for retroactive immunity)

...Waiting until after the vote to take a position on the bill, Obama has finally come forward and issued a statement - looks like Obama reversed his prior strong opposition to both retroactive immunity for criminal acts by telecoms and expanded domestic spying powers....

It's time to go out and get the disenfranchised O-bomb-a people to wake up. They are ripe for the plucking now. There is but one choice: write-in Ron Paul!

More on this here: Where Is Omama On the FISA Fight?.

[Obama] 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.

Compare that with Obama's pledge in October 2007:
It’s official: Obama will back a filibuster of any Senate FISA legislation containing telecom immunity, his campaign has just told Election Central. The Obama campaign has just sent over the following statement from spokesman Bill Burton:

“To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.”

Oh, but that type of thinking is so "last year"...

"Jesse Benton was quoted:

"Jesse Benton was quoted: Dr. Paul missed the vote today because he had a longstanding commitment to speak at the Montana GOP Convention today."

so there you have it

dr.paul, brilliant man he is, was speaking to the montana convention where he may have had some sort of influence- correction, where he had a huge audience hanging onto his every word instead of voting no with the other 129 people who were way outnumbered. gotta side with my hero on this one. this is what we need is people personally(in person) hearing dr.pauls message.

I saw that too

I was wondering why, maybe someone can tell us. I'm sure Dr. Paul has a valid reason for not voting on it, or they pulled a fast one while he was away from his seat or something.
