While I would normally completely agree with you, didn't Obama stand up against SOPA as well? Or was that only after it wasn't going to get passed anyway? Please let me know if I am wrong with this as it is one of the only reasons I have to like the guy."Although the Obama administration stopped short of vetoing it ahead of its scheduled floor vote at the House of Representatives next week, it did express concerns that any potential information sharing bills must preserve an individual's right to privacy and civil liberties."
Translation: Since this is an election year, Obama will make it looks like he cares about people's rights and express concern about it.
