IF THIS WHITE HOUSE WEREN'T SO INEPT...:

Liberal lawmakers defy Obama on Patriot Act (LARRY MARGASAK, 11/05/09, Associated Press)

Defying the Obama administration, the House Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to remove from the USA Patriot Act a tool for tracking non-U.S. citizens in anti-terrorism investigations.

The committee, dominated by Democratic liberals, also voted to amend the anti-terrorism law to curb the government's surveillance and seizure powers.

The bill went to the full House on a 16-10 vote along party lines, with Republicans casting all the votes in opposition.


...one might suspect this was a set-up and just a much needed chance for the UR to smack down the liberals.
