Texas leaders had a hard time deciding who to thank. Of 14 legislatures, 4 thanked President Obama, 4 thanked former President Bush, 2 thanked both presidents, and 13 thanked the military. U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, thanked no one but the Patriot Act: "Despite yesterday’s victory, we cannot afford to leave our intelligence community without the resources it needs to dismantle terrorist organizations, identify threats from groups and individuals, and interrupt terrorist plots." Sounds like a freedom-hater to me.
