If elected president, Senator John McCain would reserve the right to run his own warrantless wiretapping program against Americans, based on the theory that the president's wartime powers trump federal criminal statutes and court oversight, according to a statement released by his campaign Monday.We don't need 4 more years of Bush politics and tactics, and McCain taking this position is setting us up for exactly that. What ever happened to the Bill of Rights? What ever happened to checks and balances in government? Oh, yeah.... W happened.
I used to think McCain would be a decent alternative to the Dems, but the more he campaigns, the more traditional Republican positions he takes. Bah.... he's dead to me.
