They were against it before they were for it

After all the Democrats' teeth-gnashing, hand-wringing and bed-wetting last year over the Bush administration's counter-terrorism surveillance programs, the now Democrat-controlled Congress gives the administration more authority to conduct surveillance.

In other words, they were against it when they could make political points enough to sway the November elections, but now they're for it.

Is it safe now to say that the Democrats use national security as a political plaything?

I agree. This is a complete betrayal of the voters. In the past I considered myself a moderate democrat, but this last year have really pushed be toward abandoning both parties. They capitulated on the war, stem cells,
illegal wiretapping. Is there anything they promised that actually happened?
We need something new in this country.
