"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN - Bush signs extension of Patriot Act

What's new, but I find it unfortunate that political games need to be played with our security. Such is life with short memories.

Quote: "The debate over whether some of the provisions infringe too much on civil liberties became more heated after the revelation that Bush authorized the National Security Agency to conduct a domestic eavesdropping operation on Americans with suspected terrorism ties without seeking court approval."

Lucky for the Democrats that NYT came out with the NSA story just in time. I dislike being paranoid, however, the theatrics that have accompanied the past few years seems awfully convenient to be coincidental.

Anyhow, if I don't return for a few days. Happy New Year to all
