Critics of the Obama administration’s naive and baffling decision to relinquish control of the Internet’s basic functions are led by former president Bill Clinton.
Bill Clinton argues that the U.S. has still done a pretty good job of keeping the Internet open and free.
Clinton said, “A lot of people … have been trying to take this authority from the U.S. for the sole purpose of cracking down on Internet freedom and limiting it and having governments protect their backsides instead of empowering their people.”
This is a midterm year. A host of Democratic senators are up for reelection, and many of them are fighting for their political lives.
Problem is, Mr. Obama has his ‘phone and a pen’ and could easily veto any bill and give away the Internet by executive order.
This president has shown that he does not need Congress to get what he wants.
Jimmy Carter, the second worst Democrat president since James Buchanan, gave away the Panama Canal.
Now Barack Obama, the worst Democrat president since James Buchanan, is planning to give away control of the Internet.
