    Obama will most certainly be doing neither of those two.

    But he could use the power of the IRS to harass his political opponents, and the power of the NSA to harass same, and dither in his roll as CIC while Americans were under fire, and liberals would still find a way to kiss his ass.

    Well, a liberal being honest could probably say they elected a guy who at least did a few more things they liked than the other guy that was a legitimate option would've done.

    Well, the primaries a different discussion than the main. And I'd suggest Hillary gave the impression that she'd have been MORE like this in terms of national security than Obama did, so not sure they would've been more happy with her.

    If the government isn't doing anything wrong they don't have anything to worry about.

    I agree. Though I preferred Hillary, there's no doubt that she is more militaristic, and would have been more supportive of these sorts of national security programs

    Enquiring minds want to know. LOL!


    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday called NSA leaker Edward Snowden a “traitor” and said his actions are a “giant violation of the law.”
    “He’s a traitor,” Boehner said on “Good Morning America.” “The president outlined last week that these are important national security programs to help keep Americans safe and give us tools to help fight the terrorist threat we face. The disclosure of this information puts Americans at risk.”


    Boehner said Congress was fully briefed on the programs and that lawyers were always present to “protect the privacy of Americans.”

    Re: John Boehner calls Edward Snowden a "traitor."

    Really Boehner? Treason is punishable by the death penalty and the word traitor shouldn't be used lightly. If he thinks that whistle blowers pointing out what they believe to be unconstitutional criminality, violations of rights or just abject failures by people in government like himself should be put to death, then **** Boehner! (lol at **** boner)

    If dissent is the highest form of patriotism then whistle blowers, in a government whose sole existence is for the defense of our rights and every member of it swears an oath to defend it, should be applauded as heroes. Provided that their actions do not jeopardize the lives of any covert operatives/operations.

    I hope every single person in government or employed by it will whistle blow every single abuse, waste and scandal; to the chagrin of anyone terrified by the notion.

    Bhoner is abusing his position to slander a citizen. Snowden has a right to due process like anyone else, and I dont think the person who would eventually be his judge should be convicting him of a crime.

    Section. 3.

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

    The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
