    The Obama administration has been blatantly dishonest about so many things that this doesn't seem as surprising as all these things pile up. This one is no longer just a national security issue, and it's no longer just an embarrassment to President Obama who appears powerless with his pronouncements that no one is listening too - this is now an embarrassment for the American people that voted for Obama.
    Don't know if I can agree with everything you stated; there are still millions and millions of Obama apologists out there.

    How many think its OK to spy on Americans with Obama as president?

    How many think its OK to kill civilians with Obama's drone program?

    How many think its OK for the US government to sell weapons to drug dealers and have firearms cross an international border illegally (Fast & Furious) as long as the government does it?

    There is still plenty of support from the Obamabots.

    The record is stuck on the CIA charter that says the CIA is to help USA Corporations overseas. You probably think they are there to help you, eh? I very simply identified how that statement relates to the current NSA eavesdropping. Take a lesson.

    There is no such charter.

    I actually don't blame Obama, or Bush. I blame the American people for letting this happen, for letting their emotions get the better of them while their government usurped more and more power from them. The U.S. government is out of control and needs to be stopped. I wish the People would get off their fat lazy asses and do something about it.

    DP is a miniscule sample representing a microcosm of the American society. Here's a better picture. Even 45 or 46% of the American public who think Obama is doing a good job shows millions and millions of people still support his policies.

    I wonder what the results would be if they were asked specifically what they think of the spying operation?

    No written charter.

    Or maybe it's written, but in private hands?

    Who knows, but what he says is right in general terms. The CIA and Wall Street are kinda like blood brothers.

    I cannot disagree a word!

    But the other side of the coin is that, just as Ike warned of in 1961, there are bad guys at work in the halls of government, and it ain't the first time it's happened amongst humans.

    The people have become complacent and we do have the government we deserve, but there has been a steady effort to achieve what we have today.
