Before you hang this totally on Obama, the bill passed the House 339-3. Where were the stalwart protectors of freedom in the House majority party when this slipped through in the middle of the night? This actually a tweaking of a Viet Nam era law signed into law by Richard Nixon. He got damn tired at looking at protesters and parked city buses around the White House, He threw hundreds in jail for merely exercising their First Amendment rights. It was wrong then and it is wrong now.
