As pointed out at Daily Kos, Obama is all set to support the Terrible FISA bill, even if it offers retroactive immunity. Cowardly, but he knows it's a safe move.
The commenters there are up in arms, and rightly so, but still swear to vote for Obama. They're upset, won't give him any money or go out campaigning, but they'll still vote for him. I will too. And Obama knows this. He knows were aren't voting for McCain no matter how angry we are, and he knows we aren't going to stay home or vote for someone else, as that's as good as supporting McCain. He gets to look tough on terror and national security with the uninformed masses, even though it pisses off the left, because he knows the left is behind him regardless.
He doesn't need our respect, he doesn't really even need our money. He needs our vote, and he knows he has that.
