Jane Harmon is using the argument du jour in her conversation with Brit Hume - that although she is a "trained lawyer" she did not object to the President's use of NSA "domestically" because she could not discuss it with anyone until the President, himself "disclosed" its existence [in response to the publication of its existence].
She said that Congress has vast resources of legal blah blah and now she know what she should have objected to in all those briefings that she had at the White House.
I thought only J Rockefeller was using the "I'm too stupid" defense. I guess it is going to be the dem party line.
What we keep seeing, is the Democrats unmasking some action of the President or Republican party, throwing extreme charges of criminality and totalitarianism at it, and the media picking it up and running with it for a month or so.
Once it comes out that it is actually an intelligent and prudent thing to do, the Dems move on to a different issue, the media lets the problem drift away, and it just becomes another one of those terrible things Bush/Republicans have done.
They don't seem willing to wait (or really want) for a thorough evaluation of the information to take place, to understand if the action is really necessary, and whether or not they should support the President/Republicans on any of these issues.
