Robert Livingston gets itPowerline has the story on him telling a former Democratic colleague not only that he won't sign on to a statement criticizing President Bush for overreaching with his NSA program, but why:
The President of the United States is the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces. He is Constitutionally obligated to do everything possible in time of war to safeguard the American People. This tempest in a teapot about treatment of cowardly un-uniformed mass murderers and terror mongers, as well as restriction of his ability to monitor conversations of potential terrorists is in my view asinine, and I will have nothing to do with any effort that might be used to undermine his ability to keep us free from terrorism.
It is nice to know there are still a few folks on that side of the isle who get it. If we are lucky it will catch on.
