Obama Loses Swing Voters Over FISA Amendments Act Flip Flop

Barack Obama’s plan to win over independent swing voters by supporting George W. Bush’s FISA Amendments Act has backfired dramatically, with Obama losing Republican and independent swing votes over the broken promise.

One such swing voter, who supported Ron Paul when Paul’s campaign was still active, comments over at Irregular Times, “I’m not a McCain supporter either. I’m an Independent that supports Ron Paul. With the nomination lost to McCain, I was leaning to Obama. Now…I just hope that by some miracle of God, Ron Paul somehow gets in the ballot.”

That’s just one example of the many independent voters Obama lost by supporting the FISA Amendments Act.

Obama’s essential miscalculation was this: Obama carelessly concluded that because George W. Bush is a Republican President, Republicans actually agree with his policies. Obama failed to understand that the very same Republican voters who would consider switching parties and voting for a Democratic candidate are as sick and tired of Bush as Democrats are.

When Obama supported the FISA Amendments Act, emblematic of one of Bush’s worst policies, he lost Republican and independent swing voters, because those voters don’t want another Bush. They actually wanted real change. Now they perceive Obama’s promises of change as just more cheap talk from a politician who is playing the same power game as everyone else in Washington D.C.

  1. FISA Facilitates Fraud!

    60-70% of our national intelligence budget is paid to private contactors. Private contractors help monitor all telephone and internet communications for the federal government.

    Competitors who want your trade secrets, your R&D plans, your bid details, your intellectural property or copies of your confidential communications can hire well placed private contractors to obtain them.

    There is no independent oversight, control or accountability for private intelligence contractor activities.

    FISA presents grave intellectual property security issues.

    The War On Terror is at least a $100 Billion a year business. The people and organizations profiting from it are not going to let go easily.

  2. Do pledged Obama delegates have the obligation to switch votes at the convention if they feel that he no longer represents the sentiments of those that elected him?

    The DNC rules not only allow it, they encourage it:
