On October 24, 2007, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton communicated Barack Obama’s commitment:
To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.
H.R. 6304 contains retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.
Barack Obama made a promise to support the filibuster of H.R. 6304.
Time for Barack Obama to keep his promise.
Call the Barack Obama campaign at (866) 675-2008 and tell him to keep his promise. Tell the Barack Obama campaign it is imperative that he filibuster H.R. 6304.
Not because MoveOn told you to. Not because I told you to. Because you value the constitutional basis upon which this country is founded. Because you cherish the Bill of Rights. Because you believe in the rule of law. Because Barack Obama’s glowing speeches waxing rhapsodic about defending the constitution mean absolutely nothing if Barack Obama will not actually defend the constitution.
