Wow, the GOP House is really in disarray.

I can’t wait to see all the right-wingers that post on here point out how the GOP controlled House not only isn’t focused on jobs, but just jeopardized our national security…

Is there any wonder why 9-11 happened on the republicans watch.

The new House leadership is much better at rhetoric than matters requiring voting.

They should throw out the entire unconstitutional patriot act. I hope all 26 Republicans that voted against it were Tea Party. Boehner thought he was going to slip this one through while nobody was looking. Now he has to take it back for debate and explain to us how unwarranted searches are good for America. This time they can’t hide their unconstitutional bills behind the smoke and dust of the Trade Center. They are going to have to debate it in full view of everybody.

Oh c'mon now, you don't really care about 9-11 or the Patriot Act do you? You just tossed out the nightmare of September 11th to try and score a point for your team right?

Thank goodness Obama and Bush and their love of big-government were both rejected in the outcome of this vote.

And don't forget that 9-11 occured after years of rogue and aggressive behavior by the US in other countries. I could be wrong, but I believe there were 4 different countries bombed in 1998 by a-president-that-wasn't-Bush, 3 of them Muslim. And then there is the first WTC bombing, which occured when a-president-that-wasn't-Bush presided, and then there were other attacks on Americans before that. I know. These are just facts.

Can't wait to hear Obama bemoan the loss of his Patriot act. It's set to expire.

Here is a fact that you conveniently left out… the worst terrorist attack on American soil happen on Bush’s (a republican) watch.

There is a class of ineptitude that few will ever know; but Bush will forever be infamous for.

Lousy attempt at disputing facts.

Your hatred and desperate need for an identity ("Hi! I'm Pat, and I am a Bush-hater") has made you thoroughly irrational.

The plot was in the works prior to his presidency- including the hijackers training which occured throughout 2000.

But by all means, ignore the previous president's whimsical bombings of Muslim countries and US policy in the Middle East in general.

Some of you just make me laugh. Still playing the argument of Republican versus Democrat.

When will some of you realize that the Patriot is not designed to protect the American People from a boogey man in cave but it is designed to protect the government from the American people.

This bill is unconstitutional and needs to be scrapped. Now what happened is that these Republicans did not get the 2/3rds vote. However, these provisions will be voted on again tomorrow and they only need a majority vote then. This unconstitutional piece of sh*t legislation will be passed and without the approval of the people.

Only the old guard Repubs might be in disarray. Many of the people voting Republican do not understand yet the politics of traitors. The progressive democrat voters will never understand that because the payout is to enticing. The idea is honorable. But when progressive policies are put into law without teeth, nations die. I choose freedom over security. Only because we spent trillions on security before 9/11. We knew who are enemies were and they still succeeded on a shoestring budget. Figure it for yourselves Americans. But someone will convince you otherwise. The architects of fear always seem to win.

As much as this bill needs to go away, Obama will not let it. When he originally took office a couple of years ago, one of the first things he after sealing all of his records was to sign an executive order extending all provisions till this vote. Without approval of the people, he just did it, thus carrying on Bush's bill.

And this bill is not even Bush's bill. It was created after the 93 WTC attack that was a staged event by the FBI (FOIA documents released by the FBI confirms they set up the bomber and cooked up the bomb). Clinton was not able to pass it in 93-94.

Your an idiot. How about you just shut the f*ck up. You know nothing of the history of this bill, you know nothing of what this bill is designed to do, and you know nothing of the signees of this bill.

Until you know the whole story about this bill, why dont you just stfu. The meaningless crap that comes out when you type is just that, meaningless crap and ignorant BS.
