You cannot convince a Liberal that there is ANYTHING wrong unless a Republican did it. If Obama does the same exact thing, it is the best thing ever. It really is a sickness of the mind and will ultimately be the undoing of this country.

So... Everyone`s forgotten about the Patroit act? Which was completely worst then a "COURT ORDER" that gives the NSA a list of whom you called?

Patriot Act - Unwarranted wiretaps, Legal surveillance of "lone wolves," and unwarranted searches of any contacts.

NSA Surveillance Court Order - Collects your last called records and data

Maybe you guys should sending dick pics over your phones.

Gerry: And all the while the POTUS and his cabinet have been using secret e-mail accounts in violation of the law.

The president`s communications, by law, have to be known. The congress has the power of oversight over the president, via subpoena if need be. He wants oversight on all of us, but none over him. That`s pretty much the definition of a tyrant right there.

When Bush read your emails and you didn`t object, that lead to Obama taking your phone records without warrent. If nothing is done now then the next POTUS will do what? Remote turn your phone on and listen in your home? Drone strike you inside the US? If you think it`s impossible, well it was impossible to read our private emails 25 years ago, so there you are.

Agreed - I don`t understand why we are talking about Bush. Unless I am horribly mistaken, the law was introduced in 2009.

We can argue about Bush laying the framework, but doesn`t that carry the implication that Obama is a bigger douchebag than Bush, since Bush did not implement such a law even though he could have?

I know this is difficult to understand, but, this has been going on since before Obama took office. I`m not saying it`s right or wrong, I`m not blaming Bush or Obama, or applauding them. But let`s put it in perspective.

It`s a bit about trust me thinks. Would I trust Bush to use the law honestly? Perhaps. Would I trust Obama to do so? Not a chance.

Just because Bush was the first to rape our constitution doesn`t mean we should allow the gang raping to continue. Especially not with this elitist liberal snob that defiantly thumbs his nose to congress and the rest of us.

By the way, they are collecting METADATA. Not the contents of the call.

Metadata is simply " Number a called number b at xx:xx hours on xx/xx/xxxx

I know people hate political discussions. I`ve avoided it (at least to my recollection) on here, but I really want to make what I think will be my only political comment. I really hope that, with all the nonsense that has come to light that the Obama administration has been pulling, people who vote for him will pull the blinders off already. I voted for him the first time around, which I`m kind of embarrassed about, but I didn`t do so the second time, and I`m now a proud supporter of ABO - Anybody but Obama. I think he sucks at this job, and he scares me with a lot of the shiz he pulls. It doesn`t really matter who we vote for, though, because of the electoral college. We Americans have little to no say regarding who becomes president. I just hope a strong Republican candidate emerges in 2016. I`m from New Jersey and really wish Christie would run. Oh, and on a kind of related note, it pisses me off that Obama compares himself to Reagan. He`s probably rolling over in his grave.

no Mikeoxsbigg, NOTHING is not worth losing freedom. even though i am old and boring and benign, i don`t feel the government has any need whatsoever to monitor me in any way, shape, or form.

it was bad in the late 1960`s and early 1970`s when libraries were required to turn over information on people who borrowed Mao`s Little Red Book. apparently that was only the beginning of the erosion of our freedoms. or perhaps it was just one of the first public notifications.

i weep for my kid, step-kids, and grandchildren.

@ McGovern - you`re right, it is his fault. AND it`s Obama`s fault. O`s adminstration did this, but they could not have done this had not GW laid the ground work with his dastardly deeds. Corrosion doesn`t happen overnight, it`s a progression - it`s gradual. But there is always a start.

"Yes, IRS targeting of political groups is a fake scandal."

I didn`t say it wasn`t a scandal. However, there`s little thus far linking Obama personally to the IRS flap. Obama is more directly responsible for this, partially because he`s defending it so strongly.

Either way, I completely agree with Gerry. The Republicans are just as much to blame for this, yet now they`re going to freak out about how Obama is a dictator and they had nothing to do with giving the executive branch these kinds of powers.

@McGovern1981 - Actually, the Cheney/Rumsfeld administration is to blame for this. As Gerry1of1 & hydro99 said, the Patriot Act was signed into law by them.

hydro, no shiite sherlock.

Considering Obama is now the most powerful man in the world, and has been for almost 5 years, and has the power stop this, I think we should put the pressure in his direction. Save the rest for the history books.

FoolsPrussia. Yes, IRS targeting of political groups is a fake scandal.

I don`t think blaming Obama is necessarily the right way to deal with this. Yes, he is involved. The reason I say we can`t only blame Obama is simple. The problem is much larger. If we think having a different president would change things, we are fools. This started with Bush and would have continued regardless of who was elected. Having one person to blame things on is a easy way for the rest of our officials to do what they want, which is to gain power. We don`t need a new prez, we need a complete governmental makeover.

My work here is done...Captain Obvious, AWAY!

The president is acting within the power provided to him by the patriot act. If anyone thinks this started with Obama, you are so naive. This all started when the Patriot Act was put in place, which essentially gave the government free reign to spy on whoever they wanted whenever they wanted. This had a chance to be dropped in 2005, but once again congress voted to keep it in place. If you want to blame anyone, blame the terrorists of 9/11 followed by the congress that continually approves measures like this at any cost and with no regard to citizen privacy.

I guarantee you the gov`t has been collecting info on everyone ever since they realized they could easily do so as long as you have a cellphone and/or internet connection.

Most people don`t ever stop to think that they`re actually being tracked 24/7. Every time you swipe your ATM/Credit Card, use an E-ZPass, make a call, send a text, send an email, etc, etc, etc, that info goes through servers all over the world and can be collected anywhere.

For all who sat back while George Bush shat on the constitution... THIS is why you should have yelled then. Once you allow the gov`ment to spy on it`s people a little, they get hungry for more. And spy more, and track you more, and take your liberties and privacy away.

A little more each year.
Year after year.

Bush sucked. Obama has continued it.
The next one will be just as bad if not worse.

And Obama is defending it, saying it is necessary to prevent attacks. If thats not a fourth amendment violation I don`t know what is.

I can see wiretapping, but it needs to have a narrow scope not just anyone on Verizon. The government has been doing a lot of mass data collecting on Americans recently.
