Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton Fail To Show Up For Final FISA Vote

Hillary Clinton failed to show up for the final vote on the FISA Amendments Act. Barack Obama cast a number of votes on amendments and procedural hurdles for the FISA Amendments Act earlier in the day, but skipped out of town, missing the final vote for the FISA Amendments Act.

You might say Obama’s failure to attend the final vote puts my ankle on the fence when it comes to my vote in Ohio, if not yet my glute. Senator Clinton, you’re going to have to do some really hard work to get my vote in March. You missed a lot of substantively important votes today, and the consequence is that Americans stand to lose a fair amount of their civil liberty and the constitution stands to lose a fair amount of its integrity. Senator Obama, what’s your problem? Is the stage and the adoring crowd of people chanting your name just too big a draw for you to stick around and finish your work? You know, the hard work of leadership and crap like that? Oh, I know, that’s little bureaucratic stuff for the plebes, not soaring orators like you.

These people are not running for sainthood, and if they can’t hack sharp criticism from their own perceived “side” then they’ll never lead a nation.

    John McCain was there, and he voted FOR allowing electronic spying against American citizens.

    Nasty, nasty man, John McCain.

  2. Tom says:

    At least he showed up.

  3. J. Clifford says:

    With wrecking ball aimed at the Constitution.

  4. Iroquois says:

    A simple majority needed to pass the bill? That would be about 51 votes. Not a close vote at all. McCain could have been out on the campaign trail, whats-his-name is starting to kick his butt.
