1. Liberal oriented MSM reveals wiretaps of suspected domestic terrorists and FBI placing radiation meters near selected mosques. They reveal this to embarrass Bush. 2. Liberal Dem politicians (Pelosi, Reid, Dean, Kennedy) jump on issue and criticize Republicans for this policy. 3. Moderate Dems don't say much. 4. Bush admin defends itself (for a change) and justifies what it was doing. 5. Pollsters discover the public agrees with Bush on this issue. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/2005/NSA.htm Sixty-four percent (64%) of Americans believe the National Security Agency (NSA) should be allowed to intercept telephone conversations between terrorism suspects in other countries and people living in the United States. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that just 23% disagree. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Americans say they are following the NSA story somewhat or very closely. Just 26% believe President Bush is the first to authorize a program like the one currently in the news. Forty-eight percent (48%) say he is not while 26% are not sure. Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republicans believe the NSA should be allowed to listen in on conversations between terror suspects and people living in the United States. That view is shared by 51% of Democrats and 57% of those not affiliated with either major political party. Sad, because we really do need two strong parties with differing solutions, but the Dems prove time and again that they just can't be trusted on matters of national security. They really don't have a clue.
