Last comment by Funkentelecky 1 year, 4 months ago.

The invasion of privacy act( patriots act) program was started under the Bush Administration....and From what I understand Obama said he would not use the program as it was written. He changed the law to make it necessary to get a warrant from the secret FISA courts after he was elected. He kept his word.

PN, you are correct that the Patriot Act was started by the Bush administration; however just like BHO convinced you that Dubya was irresponsible for 4T of National debt in 8 years , while 4 years later racking up 5T himself. The patriot act is on steroids under his guidance just like the national debt. Like JimmyMack said I really don’t care about them listening to me, but the AP wiretaps and the one against Frank Rosen has me worried.

PN, here is an example of how partisan BHO was during the Bush administration. Bush’s wiretapping was focused on terrorist activity like this:

This was months after a series of articles in the New York Times which brought the warrantless wiretaps to light. At the time, the Bush Administration had used the provisions for data mining of calls made to countries such as Pakistan and Yemen.

When it comes to national security, Mr. Obama is completing Dubya's fourth term. There has been little - if any - REAL difference in how this country has pursued its "homeland security" under Obama vs. Dubya. And now we're seeing what happens when you have a national media scorned and they latch on to the supposed "privacy violations" that they ripped Bush for but have ignored the Obama policies - until now.

The fact of the matter is that Obama - despite his campaign rhetoric and "promises" - has continued the Bush Doctrine of homeland security. He did it because it was BEST for this country. Charles Krauthammer is correct:

All the liberals who now support surveillance need to apologize to Bush

I think it is healthy for the nation for the media to have been scorned.

I think in time to come the liberals just might have a number of reasons to apologize for a lot of things brought about through their efforts.

Not quite just yet, boys. As long as there are extreme Aryan Conservatives such as Tot around, we Liberals ain't apologizin' for nuttin.

I cannot wait to see what the Conservatives in Congress do when they get the immigration bill that sailed thru the Senate.

Personally: I see one more of those long cherished social-conservative values being abandoned by Conservatives in an ugly display of political opportunism.

Some House Republicans are threatening to remove Boehner as Speaker if he orchestrates passage of the current bill without a majority of Republicans voting for it. The impasse must be broken. The Tea Party can't expect to get everything they want - compromise must prevail. But HONOR must also prevail. The "pledge" to secure the borders can't just be a sham in order to get votes. The must be REAL border security along with the "path to citizenship" the majority seems to want. OTHERWISE - the only way to "solve the immigration problem" would be to kick all illegals out and try to stop them/any new ones from coming in. IMPOSSIBLE. A compromise needs to be found NOW.

Awwww....all y'all bloggers are most valuable to me....

Funkentelecky commented on Tuesday, Jun 18, 2013 at 20:18 PM

Some things just can't be compromised, such as closing the border first. The immigration bill that sailed thru the Senate doesn't address stopping the leak. I agree that kicking the illegals out is stupid; however the compromise to that is closing the border 1st. The Senate bill is another 4 digit monstrosity like Obamacare that has been rushed thru with no transparency, and we not gonna pass it 1st this time without seeing what's in it(Nancy Pelosi) with our check and balance House of Representatives, representing.
