If Obama’s Doing It, Democrats are Cool With Spying
Liberals have no core values.
Check it out:
Here from the Washington Post: “Most Americans Back NSA Tracking Phone Records, Prioritize Probes Over Privacy — A large majority of Americans say the federal government should focus on investigating possible terrorist threats even if personal privacy is compromised, and most support the blanket tracking of telephone records in an effort to uncover terrorist activity, according to a new Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll.”
The numbers are 56-41. Fifty-six percent support the government doing whatever, whenever, however. Forty-one percent oppose it. “Fully 45 percent of all Americans say the government should be able to go further than it is, saying that it should be able to monitor everyone’s online activity if doing so would prevent terrorist attacks. A slender majority, 52 percent, say no such broad-based monitoring should occur.”
Now, did we see polls like this from the media even after 9/11, 2001, or after other terror attacks? I don’t know; maybe we did, but I don’t remember them. But all of a sudden now, in the midst of all of these scandals, PRISM, Verizon, all this stuff, now we’re getting polling data that shows a vast majority support it, and not only support it, but want more of it. More Americans back government tracking than they did in 2006 when word of this first came out. Even though we’ve been told, the president has told us the War on Terror is over. But the Washington Post claims that it’s because of Obama being president. “With a Democratic president at the helm instead of a Republican, partisan views have turned around significantly.”
