Iteresting...the Patriot Act passed the House 386 to 66 and passed the Senate 98 to 1. It was to last five years but was renewed in 2005 and made permanent. It is good to see Americans wake up finally after being spied on all of these years and gladly going along.

Oh come on stop the lying bullspit, poopiehead, OBAMA had to RENEW the most controversial aspects of the Patriot Act because they have ALWAYS been temporary.

On May 26, 2011, President Barack Obama signed the PATRIOT Sunsets Extension Act of 2011, a four-year extension of three key provisions in the USA PATRIOT Act: roving wiretaps, searches of business records (the "library records provision"), and conducting surveillance of "lone wolves" — individuals suspected of terrorist-related activities not linked to terrorist groups.

"PRISM was born late in George W. Bush's administration, but its bloodline can be traced to the frenzied aftermath of 9/11.

It used to be that, when the federal government wanted to read a foreigner's Yahoo or Microsoft emails, it needed a judge's approval. After the attacks, Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to get to skip that oversight and read U.S.-based email accounts in real time.

When the New York Times revealed the existence of that program, the Bush administration appealed to Congress, saying court approval was too arduous.

There were too many emails to monitor. Getting warrants for each one took too long."

Why the outrage it was authorized under the Patriot Act. I also believe only one Senator from both parties voted against it.

This sort of reminds me of the outrage from the far right during the Valerie Plame scandal :)

Clueless, I’m sure you’re proud Barry Benghazi shut down that illegal Bush warrantless domestic spying program, right? Oh, you mean in FIVE YEARS of the Obama Presidency that illegal program, like Guantanamo and the Afghanistan war, is still going strong? Well, maybe Obama will get around to fixing those problems and keeping those promises sometime this term. And maybe you Obamazombies will learn how to babble something other than “but BUSH!” excuses for Barry Obush’s illegal, incompetent bumbling. But I doubt it.

mmm mmm mmm, more Kool Aid please

Clueless, the EVIL GENIUS George W. was SOOOOOOO SMART he created a program that had to be renewed every four years and then HYPNOTIZED the poor widdle half-white guy so that some time in the DISTANT FUTURE, he would just be brain dead and AUTOMATICALLY SIGN the extensions with a ROBOTIC PEN.

Why next, we will here that OBAMA did NOT KNOW ANYTHING about the signing, why the EVIL BUSH hacked into the White House computer and operated the Robo Pen from Crawford, TX.

Obama was a VICTIM, poor little kid.

Man, that Bush was some kind of Evil Genius!

Cluelass "Been doing it since 2002, but hey, THANKS FOR BLAMING THE BLACK GUY!!"

Idiot it was renewed ONCE by W. and Once by Obama.

Did Obama have a gun to his head when he did that? No, in fact the lazyass bast&&rd was in France.

It was SOOOOOO important he had a RoboPen sign it.

Grow some bawlz and MAN UP ! Take responsibily. Your Race Card is VOID, it has been overused too much.

Valerie Plame? This NSA spying has Nothing in common with the Plame outing. And gee, when are the haters going to stop accusing freedom loving Americans of being racist? What the*****is wrong with you people? You dirt bags keep the flames of racism burning every time you flagrantly spew your hatred and empty accusations! You should be ashamed of yourself to even for one second equate the outrage of American citizens who despise being spied on by our government(who are actually supposed to Americans)with a dislike for black people. How shallow can one be? I can't believe that the web-master of this rag won't remove crap like this from this forum! My political views as well as the views of many others on here are not motivated by the race card! This has NOTHING to do with race. Stick to the subject of the news article. This is about NSA spying on American Citizens, it's not about race relations.This issue is too important to be clouded with a race discussion.

The webmasters of this forum need to leave the race baiting babble of liberal loons exactly as it’s posted as clear examples of loony liberal thought and the lows to which liberals will stoop to advance their “progressive” agenda.

You keep posting your amusing whines about “BLAMING THE BLACK GUY!!”, GETACLUE. Society needs to know just how you “progressives” think. LOL

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden a "traitor" in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" Tuesday.

"He's a traitor," he said. "The president outlined last week that these were important national security programs to help keep Americans safe and give us tools to fight the terrorist threat that we face."

"The disclosure of this information puts Americans at risk. It shows our adversaries what our capabilities are. And it's a giant violation of the law," he said.

No worries. Our Choomer in Chief, being a "Constitutional scholar," will sort it out.

Like he sorted out his fatal Benghazi debacle and cover-up scandal, his fatal Fast and Furious debacle and failure to investigate scandal, his New Black Panther voter intimidation failure to prosecute scandal, his secret IRS targeting and illegal abuse of American citizens scandal,...

Let's review: Clinton knew nothing about Benghazi threat. Holder knew nothing about phone taps. Shulman knew nothing about targeting conservative groups, and now Clapper knows nothing about NSA data collection.

The first rule of leadership is "Everything is Your Fault"

"A month before Bob Novak published Valerie Plame’s name and disclosed that she worked at the CIA in a department that monitored weapons of mass destruction, the gossipy Richard Armitage at the State Department already knew all about her.

When asked how he knew about Plame, Armitage said he knew because Joe Wilson was "calling everybody" and telling them. And by "everybody" Mr. Armitage certainly meant reporters.

With that in mind it is an easy step to suppose that it was Mr. Joseph C. Wilson IV himself who first "outed" his wife as a CIA officer."

"In a Gallup tracking poll released Tuesday, former-President George W. Bush currently stands with a favorability rating of 49%, compared to 46% who see the 43rd president unfavorably. Meanwhile, another Gallup poll shows President Obama with only a 47% approval rating, with 44% disapproving.

If you think about it, this makes perfect sense.

After all, Obama fooled everyone when he ran as the anti-Bush in 2008. Everyone thought Obama meant he would be less hawkish than his predecessor. But as we have seen, Obama apparently has no problem killing American citizens via remote control with drones or greatly expanding upon Bush's surveillance state.

This, even though Obama told us he had pretty much won the War on Terror.

BBBWHAHAHAHAAAH!

well, history shows the bottom 40% of the bottom %50 tax payers pay no taxes at all. You think the amnesty crowd will be in the upper 10%. Sure. So, they will be getting earned income refund check from the git go. Can you ever have too many people ? Imagine having a twenty man capacity life boat in the flooded streets during katrina. You have 8 clowns with bullhorns standing in the bow shouting " Anybody who feels they might like to get in this boat, welcome aboard "
