The Silence Is Deafening

A full 24 hours after the House voted to extend the spy on Americans portion of the Patriot Act, not one Republican blog in the state that I am aware of even mentioned the story in passing (or Dem blog that I can see). I just love the constant rhetoric from the Reich Wing on protecting our freedoms at all costs but when it comes down to actually doing so, silence.

So Ms Noem, how do you reconcile the fact that you along with 274 of your cohorts in the House have chosen to vote against the very principles you claim to hold so dear? Even worse, how does Michele Bachmann who just a few weeks ago decreed that her colleagues be able to cite the specific passage in the Constitution that validates any bill before the House, explain away her obvious hypocrisy?

Bueller, Bueller...

  1. Agreed: the silence is deafening, and embarrassing. You have been a consistent voice on this issue. None of our leaders seem able to address this contradiction seriously.

  2. And, the silence is on both sides of the political spectrum. Republicans were silent when it was proposed by Bush. Now, when Obama is doing even more extreme stuff regarding the internet and free speech, both parties are silent.
