The LA Times is running an article that ‘highlights’ just how little Democrats are to be trusted when they trot out their ‘Real Security’ campaign. Here’s the section that calls them out:

In other action, Republicans on the committee defeated a Democratic amendment that sought to force the Bush administration to reveal the budget for the controversial NSA espionage program. The Democratic measure would have withheld 20% of the NSA’s budget unless the White House agreed to disclose how much was being spent on the domestic eavesdropping program.

At the time that Democrats are talking up their ‘Real Security’ credentials in public, they’re attempting to slash spending on the NSA intercept program policy that’s kept us safe thus far. Couple that with their bragging about killing the Patriot Act and you’re left wondering if they aren’t a bad sideshow from a third-tier circus.

You’d think that they’d at least act like adults while they’re focusing their attention on national security. But that would force that leopard to change its spots and we know that ain’t happening, don’t we?

We should know better when you think about it. After all, what do Reid and Pelosi have to do with intelligence?
