By Doug Powers  •  May 27, 2011 09:17 AM

**Written by Doug Powers President Obama is over in France and wasn’t in Washington to sign the extension of the Patriot Act that was to expire at midnight, so it was signed with an “autopen.” What a great excuse to offer the inevitable criticism he’ll get, much of it from his own base: “But I […]
