Absolutely not, are you kidding?! This reeks of incompetence and deception. "Uh, yeah, we need more time to think of some excuse to feed the American people as to why we should be allowed to continue to trample on their rights as citizens." If there was a legitimate reason to renew it, that reason would already be known and under consideration. Patriot Act supporters have simply been caught flat footed and weren't expecting to have to justify this breach of human rights.
