One of the biggest "liberals" calls out Obama supporters and democrats for their hypocrisy over warrant-less wiretapping.


"Well, not everything President Obama and the 112th Congress managed to achieve is so terrible. With scarcely any notice, much less controversy, they did at least preserve one of the country's most important post-9/11 antiterror tools.

That would be wiretapping, which you may recall liberals portrayed during the George W. Bush era as an illegal and unconstitutional license for co-President Dick Cheney and his spymasters to bug the bedrooms of all U.S. citizens. But now Washington has renewed the 2008 amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that were due to expire at the end of 2012, with no substantive changes and none of the pseudo-apoplexy that prevailed during the Bush Presidency."*

Liberals were furious over warrant-less wiretapping introduced by George W. Bush. Then why is it okay if President Obama supports and implements it? Whose "team" are we all on? Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
