Barack Obama’s signature on the Patriot Act reauthorization bill? Not talked about in his weekly address. Not featured in his remarks of the day. Not worthy of a post on the official White House blog. Not occasioned by a White House statement. There was an official statement to declare the release of the president’s medical exam.
The nation can breathe a sigh of relief that its leader is well aside from a grinding kneecap. Next to Mr. President’s colorectal health the spread of warrantless surveillance doesn’t really merit a mention.
