Like me, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks is not at all happy with Democrats, Hillary Clinton and especially Barack Obama on the FISA capitulation.
Here's the story: about half of the Democrats in the House caved yesterday and voted with Republicans to give the big telecom companies retroactive immunity for breaking the law and wiretapping us - potentially any of us - without warrants. This illegal wiretapping started before 9/11 so it has nothing to do with terrorism. Barack Obama is going along with it. Hillary hasn't said a thing about it. There is no leadership, only capitulation.
You really really should watch this:
If you can't beat the most unpopular president of all time in a simple legislative fight like this, how can you claim to be a strong and effective leader?

When will you finally admit that the demo party is corrupt from top to bottom. Lesser of evils -- doesn't it ever get just too sickening? I guess not ever for you.

Why should anybody be upset with Hillary? Wasn't she the evil insider Democrat that St Barack of Progressivia was to destroy before St Barack became President and ushered in a glorious new age in which Everything Progressive would rule and all the woes that have been inflicted by the evil Bush/Cheney administration would be reversed?
The "progressives" have no cause for worrying about what Hillary does or doesn't do with regards to FISA because they didn't want her as the nominee anyway. No. They wanted St Barack, no matter what, because he offered them "hope" and "change"; he would bring about a new type of leadership in Washington. So they all cast their lot with him, and now they're STUCK with him. And they've got no one to blame but themselves for their delusions.
THEY were the ones who refused to check out the man's history. THEY were the ones who deflected any criticism of Barack with "you're a racist" or "you're old and can't change" or "you're bitter". Now, THEY are the ones who've got to make do with the reality that Barack Obama is JUST ANOTHER POLITICIAN who will do ANYTHING he needs to do in order to advance himself, regardless of the cost.
Of course, it's no real surprise that Cenk and Dave bring up Hillary. I can see it now; this is just prep work for the eventual blaming Obama's decision on Hillary.
