40. This was a huge issue for Democrats for the past six years.

Were you supporting these machines when Bush was in office? Because every Civil Rights organization was fighting them, and every Democrat I know was opposed to them. Now, suddenly, what Bush could not get done, a Democratic administration succeeded in doing. And the outrage was justified. The fact that some on the right are now joining in that outrage, is a good thing. If only they had when these grotesque abuses first appeared in 2004.

What IS weird is how these stories attempting to turn back the work of all those who successfully stopped them during the Bush years, are appearing on leftwing sites.

I am seeing how hypocritical the left really is. Just as hypocritical as the right. The money that has been made by Corporate America in the past year since Chertoff et al succeeded in their years long mission to get them into U.S. airports, is astronomical.

So, for the left the issue never was about principles after all. It was because it was Bush!

These articles now supporting something the left has opposed so long, THEY are the astroturf, no doubt funded by the same gang that funded the attacks on Michael Moore.

I opposed these abuses of the Constitutional rights of Americans since 2004, I have no intentions of turning a blind eye to them now because a Democrat is in the WH.

You are right about one thing. These pro-Constitutional abuse articles ARE a set-up. You need to do some research on the history of this battle.

Fyi, btw, they are illegal in New Zealand and so far, two states here are planning to ban them with bi-partisan support. I hope they succeed and will be remaining in the fight against Corporate America's theft of our rights. This is all about money. Fall for it if you wish, the CEO of the aptly named Rapiscan, thanks you, although I doubt you will get to share in the profits from our loss of rights.
