Of course we didn't! We simply believed Obama was a far better choice than that old fuk and his idiotic sidekick.

Obama's so slick he's got smart guys like Wes bullshitted into believing he is against all the rotten things his own administration is doing.

It's not Obama. No. It's the Justice Department who f*#ked up ( AP phone tap ). Or it was Treasury ( IRS abuse of power ). Or the State Department ( Benghazi cover-up ). Or the Justice Department again ( "fast & furious" ).

Obama has nothing to do with any of it, and he'd fix it if only the Republicans would let him.

It is a bit odd that bush gets the personal blame for EVERY dept and debacle under his terms yet obama [sic] gets a free pass with many?

It's not odd at all. Have you watched seen how Bush gets a free pass from conservatives like on The Five on Fox? Hear anything about Benghazi lately?

Hypocrisy is not limited to liberals or conservatives. Many will always give their guy a free pass. Many will be disgusted with both Bush and Obama.

Really, they tapped phones? Are you sure? You might want to double check with some credible sources. Runaway bullshit storm from Chaz again! Your puppet masters are proud.

Ain't no tapping... just records of who called who.

Not sure how it is different than what came out in 2006 where it was revealed that the NSA had amassed a HUGE list of who was calling who... with NO apparent reason other than to "analyze calling patterns."

Maybe a repugnikunt can explain why there is so much apparent outrage in this case, but not in the case of the Snatch led NSA amassing the same information on ALL citizens?

no way of knowing if that is factually true or not, booky

but certainly most everyone would agree much much more transparent than the administration you voted for, twice

try harder, booky, keep looking under rocks....

This administration could nuke Nepal and publicly advocate sodomizing baby seals and the majority of the democrats on this site would continue to defend Obama... just like the repubs defended Bush while he VASTLY expanded the size of the government and the national debt, trashed our civil rights, started two wars, legitimized torture, etc, etc.

Seizing? Seizing... really? When they "secretly obtained" the records... you call that "seizing?"

Our gov't will scapegoat a few poor souls that were likely following instructions of someone with more power that will come out unscathed. Been happening for decades.

AG Eric Holder orders investigation into IRS

WASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder says he's ordered a Justice Department investigation into the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups for extra tax scrutiny.

maybe it will take some of the heat off of DOJ

Really the problem is the premise that the threat of terrorism justifies pretty much anything. Now that everyone is desensitized to water boarding and assassinations and all that some snooping into records doesn't seem that bad.

We reap what we sow.

rSin,

I agree with you 100% about GITMO

they are human beings being held for over ten years now

without being tried, convicted or released

their existence there is miserable

they want to die so bad they are trying to starve themselves to death

and our people shove feeding tubes down their throats every day to keep them alive

President Obama signed an Executive Order close GITMO over four years ago

and the Republicans blocked the closing by refusing to allow a simple majority vote in the Senate

it is horrible that America is treating those people that way, regardless of whether they were wrongly arrested or forcibly recruited by El Queda
