Joel Gehrke: Huck: I'm Better than the Others

In a roundtable meeting this morning with journalists in Washington, D.C., Huckabee said that he would decide next year whether or not he will run for president, but he already knows he's unlikely to support any of those freshman senators. "If not me, I would be supportive of someone who has had executive experience and who has been a governor prior to somebody having only had legislative experience, which I think is fundamentally different in the manner in which one serves," Huckabee said after describing what it takes to be a commander-in-chief.

Usual Suspects: GOP Senate Scaremongers Claim Passage of 'USA Freedom Act' Will Strengthen ISIS

The GOP never misses an opportunity to scaremonger, and this time they're centering their authoritarian bona fides on the Senate version of the USA Freedom Act. The legislation is rather tame, in my opinion, compared to what is needed to rein in the NSA and other intelligence agencies in their ill-conceived quest to capture every byte of electronic information in the world.

Senators: Curbing NSA could help ISIS

Critics of a proposal to reform the National Security Agency say the rising threat of terrorism in the Middle East should give lawmakers pause as they consider harnessing the government's spy powers. The bill from Sen. Patrick Leahy would handicap American intelligence officials at a crucial moment, they say, and make it harder to track terrorists around the globe.
