    That could be true, especially when you have a President who seems to only enforce laws he likes and a Congress that doesn't seem to seriously care.

    What's not to get: diminishing NSA's ability would be stupid. Since he's not stupid, that's not something that he would do. We've seen that, as you've pointed out, because he hasn't done it.
    So, you agree with the NSA's domestic spying operations?

    All of our presidents engage in selective enforcement. Besides, I don't think the NSA cares about the president either.

    You mean metadata collection? Absolutely. I'm not an idiot, an ideologue, or inexperienced in how the intelligence community operates.

    Because he condones the surveillance, or the NSA knows that Obama is the most impotent president in American history.

    Again, of course he condones it. He's not stupid.
