Obama Foundering on Telecom Immunity

by on July 4, 2008 · 5 comments

Via C@L, Glenn Greenwald has thoroughly fisked Senator Obama’s most recent statement on FISA and immunity for telecom providers.

It’s more and more clear that Obama has flip-flopped, reversed course, sold out, and whatever else you want to call it.

Obama himself set high expectations about standing for something, being different, and getting away from “politics as usual.” It didn’t take long for him to demonstrate that he is a typical, disappointing politician.

Does he have time to reverse course again, redeem himself, and build back support? Or has he already handed the election to McCain?
