Here’s how you know you’re on the wrong side of the issue: Peter King is defending you.
U.S. Representative Peter King, a frequent Obama critic and Republican who sits on the permanent select committee on intelligence, said the president should be more aggressive in defending the surveillance programs that U.S. officials say have thwarted terrorist attacks, and more assertive with foreign partners.
“I find it troubling that the president has been so quiet on this. And again, I’m not saying he can control it, but there should be more of a presence including defending the NSA program,” King told CNN. “It just seems as if we’re adrift right now and I think that these countries are taking advantage of it.
“This is definitely a diplomatic hit at the president, at the U.S., but as Americans we have to support the president.”
You gotta admit, it’s pretty hilarious to hear Peter King say that.
