Joe Biden: vice hypocrite in chief

Watch Joe Biden criticize the Bush administration in 2006 for doing exactly what the Obama administration is doing now.

Here's a transcript.

Some choice excerpts:

I don't think it passes the [Constitutional] test, but it clearly doesn't pass the test of two existing statutes that say you can't do these kinds of things, forgetting the Fourth Amendment. 
It's a little bit like what would happen if the banks turned over all your checking records without your name but gave the checking account number and every single purchase you made and pattern of your behavior and then you were told, "Don't worry, that's not invasion of your privacy." 
I don't have to listen to your phone calls to know what you're doing. If I know every single phone call you made, I'm able to determine every single person you talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive.
I guess Republicans don't have a monopoly on hypocrisy.
