The Patriot Act faces expiration tonight if the Senate does not vote to renew it. Harry Reid has opposed Rand Paul’s attempt to amend the bill or prevent it from passing as written. But in 2005, Reid bragged about the Democrat’s “killing” of the act. See below:

Yes, this sort of flip-flop politics is nothing unusual for Senate Democrats. But hypocrisy as obvious as this really makes you wonder: if even senators are willing to be so deceptive, then how can we trust backroom bureaucrats to responsibly use the powers given to them in the Patriot Act?
