No Surprise — Obama flips on FISA

That’s right lady’s and gentlemen…. No surpise… The Presidential Nominee from the Democrats has voted for the FISA bill in Senate helping it pass.  Through the primary season he has opposed granting immunity to telecoms who work with the government on wiretaps.  In fact he stated he was against any vote and would vote against cloture on any reform bill as long as it

Mr. Obama voted for the Dodd amendment to delete telecom immunity which failed and then voted Yes for the cloture even when he pledged No and then voted with the Majority for the act.

An interesting side line to this is that former presidential candidate voted against the bill, see this article in the Wall Street Journal for more information including some comments from the Obama website.

See Powerline for more information

What else will Mr. Obama keep his word on?
