    The VP would be elevated. The USA was not left presidentless after the Lincoln or Kennedy assinations or after Nixon resigned.

    So if Prez Doofus were to be impeached, Biden would become President. That's about the best insurance Doofus could have.

    It seems that just like a lot of politicians he said what ever he had to get elected and then backs out of what he promised to do..
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    You've outdone yourself, j-mac.
    You people were ready to impeach Bush over this issue and compared him to Hitler and a fascist government. So naturually we're concerned when your hypocracy comes shining through like a solar flare.

It is not a good thing to know that our last 2 presidents support Soviet policies, and taking actions that suppress freedom, rather than enhance it.

    Obama should resign his presidency over this, and if the American people have any cahonas at all, they should unelect each and every Democrat and Republican that supported Bush in this, and who are supporting Obama now, either directly, or by their unamerican inaction.

    This is disgusting. Citizens should not be afraid of their government. The government should be afraid of its citizens.
    I call bull****, it was never proven that he was spying on Americans.

    It was proven that the NSA has gathered and stored every email written by every American. Is that spying?

    I don't see this as a broken promise by Obama. At the time he made allegations, he was not privy to the intelligence that the then White House had. Now that he has a more complete picture as to what this lawsuit would divulge, he has changed his position. I don't have a problem with a changed position when the person is provided more detailed intelligence.

    That started long before Bush was elected, where have you been?

    I have a problem with someone frothing at the mouth when he doesn't know what he's talking about during a campaign.

    That's a valid complaint.
