The ACLU scores the entire Senate and House every year based on the
issues they think most important. Obama didnít beat his VP pick
Joe Bidenís 91%, but he didnít do bad for a first term Senator with an
82% lifetime score. If he would have actually vote more than just
"present" his score would be higher. The only issue he voted
against that the ACLU wanted him to vote for was the FISA Amendments Act
of 2008 in which he had to do some pandering.

What does this tell you about Obama, when he chooses to be introduced by

reports that a former intelligence agent says the waterboarding of
Abu Zubaydah got him to talk in less than 35 seconds. The technique,
which critics say is torture, probably disrupted "dozens" of planned
al-Qaida attacks and saved hundreds and thousands of lives.
But, Barack Obama said today on ABC's "This
Week" program that waterboarding is torture and that he is not ruling
out prosecution of Bush officials for interrogation crimes.
the interview, Obama criticized Vice President Dick Cheney for his
public defense of "extraordinary" interrogation methods used against top
terrorism suspects, including simulated drowning known as waterboarding.
"Vice President Cheney, I think, continues to defend what he
calls extraordinary measures or procedures when it comes to
interrogations and from my view waterboarding is torture," Obama said.
"I have said that under my administration we will not torture."

Man Attacks Obama From The Grave
says, no. That headline isnít a snide joke about votersí ages
(you know what they say, when youíre young and poor youíre a Democrat
and when youíre rich and a dead personÖ), the deceased are actually
coming after Democrats; rising from their graves and advancing on
Washington while growling "SMALL GOVERNMENT! SMALL
GOOOOOVERNMENT!" through their rigor mortis-afflicted mouths. Ok,
not exactly, but their obituaries are sure leaning right. A few
months ago, a Nevada womanís obituary called out Harry Reid, and now, a
recently departed man from Georgia is borrowing the tactic to attack
President Obama from beyond the grave.
The National Review
Onlineís Jonah Goldberg scanned in this treat from the obituary of the
late Donald Charles Unsworth:
"The family respectfully asked in lieu of
flowers that memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer
Society, or to the campaign of whoever is running against President
Barack Obama in 2012."
When the Reid story hit last July, many people
complained about the family using the memory of their loved one for
political purposes. Iím not sure I agree with that. For all
we know, these people actually used their last available strength to ask
their family members to help turn their entire life into a quirky,
quickly dated cable news anecdote. Still though, if this was the
familyís doing in this case, itís even more disturbing. Itís one
thing to exploit a loved one for politics. Itís quite another to
exploit a loved one for politics, and do so in a wholly unoriginal
