He’s too busy answering questions about his flag pin, or lack thereof.

I agree with MrKnowItAll…Nobody asks him the important questions instead they are focused on Flag pins, Rev. Right, etc.

He voted against renewal of the Patriot Act in 2005 – http://obama.senate.gov/press/051216-obama_statement_13/index.php.

He also voted against the Military Commissions Act – http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=109&session=2&vote=00259.

I can’t find anything on the Violent Radicalization and Home-grown Terrorism Prevention Act.

Thank you. S1959 has not been voted on yet so it makes sense that there is no voting record.

Has he spoken about the severity of these laws?

That I don’t know. I became so disheartened after the 2004 election that I just tuned out of politics for a while. I haven’t paid as much attention during this election cycle as I should have.

If I hear anything, I’ll be sure to pass it along.
