Will The MSM Show The Same Outrage When Obama Extends The Patriot Act

Do you remember all the outrage over the USA Patriot Act?  The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS and a host of others all outraged that our constitutional rights were being taken away by the evil President Bush.

Do you think the MSM would show the same outrage if the Democrat controlled congress attempted to extend this outrageous law?   Apparently not.

On Thursday, the House voted 315 to 97 to extend the USA Patriot Act. Without the bill, the provisions would expire Sunday.

The Senate approved the extension Wednesday.

Senate Democrats attempted to add privacy restrictions to the bill, but could not muster the 60 votes necessary.

Also thrown away were Democrat inserted restrictions and greater scrutiny on the government’s authority to spy on Americans and seize their records.

You would think with the recent Fort Hood terrorist attack, the Christmas Underwear Bomber and other security issues that have diminished the public’s trust in the Democrats ability to protect the nation, that they would not attempt to make it even easier for terrorist than they already have.

But, of course they have the MSM providing cover for them. 

President Obama is expected to sign the extension into law next week.
