First Things First

The Democrats are calling for an investigation into the NSA eavesdropping matter, no doubt worrying that the Bush administration might be using the presidency to collect information and spy upon poor unsuspecting citizens.

I would suggest here that a BIG problem our government has is that they jump into new investigations before they finish the old ones.

Remember the discovery at the Clinton White House of more than 900 secret FBI personnel files, including dossiers of prominent Republicans? Did we get the who, how, when, and why of all that? Was Clinton gathering info that would protect us from terrorists?

I don't remember the Democrats, the mainstream media, or the rest of the Left's stormtroopers being all that inspired towards getting to the bottom of that little outrageous misuse of power.

I'm not a smart man, Jenny, but eavesdropping on terrorists and people in the states that they like to talk to might be demonstrating a competence in insuring our security. And if we contrast this with the sleazy machinations of window-peeking into the private matters of political opponents... well the Bush administration does seem to have loftier goals in play.

I'm all for an investigation--if the investigation includes finding out who leaked the secret and criminally prosecuting the leaker(s).
