Principled Politicians Retraction

In yesterday's post titled Principled Politicians it was strongly suggested that the President's senatorial critics of his terrorist spying program were being hypocritical by voting to pass a security bill the other day which allows the program to continue after they had expressed such outrage over it a year ago.

This was misleading since 28 senators voted against the bill and among these were some of the most vocal of the President's opponents on this issue. So, those critics were entirely consistent, and it was an error to suggest otherwise.
