Obama Hates Rushed Legislation

Flashback: November 22, 2004. Newly elected Senator Obama (D-Ill) complains about legislation being rushed through congress:

Obama: "When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea what's in them and nobody has read them...."

Randi Rhodes: "14 pounds, it was ... Yeah"

Obama: " "Yeah ... It gets rushed trough without any clear deliberations or debate then these kinds of things happen. And I think that this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean, you remember, there was no real debate about that. It was so quick after 9/11 that it was introduced that people felt very intimidated by the administration."

Good thing we don't do that anymore.
