They Write Letters

Another frothing-at-the-mouth bleeding-heart liberal heard from on Obama’s FISA cave and the media’s coverage of it:

Re “Obama Supporters on the Far Left Cry Foul” (news article, July 13):

I resent the implication in your article that those of us unhappy with Senator Barack Obama’s vote on wiretapping are a bunch of left-wingnuts.

Support of our Constitution is not a radical position, and it is troubling that the media, including The New York Times, have lately been characterizing such support as such.

I was an enthusiastic Obama supporter, but now after his vote to nullify the Fourth Amendment, I am understandably less so. But I am no pinko.

In fact, I consider myself somewhat of a conservative in the former sense of the world. I am opposed to welfare, government bailouts and affirmative action. I’m wary of the military-industrial complex, but I support a strong military. I like the Constitution a lot, and believe in balanced budgets, living within our means and small government, most particularly the kind that doesn’t illegally spy on its citizens.

If these beliefs are “far left,” then I’m George Orwell.

Damn hippies.

    Now I’m really confused. Am I supposed to be for the Constitution or against it? I mean, that guy doesn’t even support welfare!

    Speaking of which, are you on the blogroll yet at Accountability Now PAC, Eli? There’s still time.
