Yes quite ironic that the very act to destroy of right to speech and privacy would of all things be known as the "patriot act"...thanks to Cheney/Bush as RR stated....its a well known fact that George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany...can you all see where this is going?

The debate over Prescott Bush's behavior has been bubbling under the surface for some time. There has been a steady internet chatter about the "Bush/Nazi" connection, much of it inaccurate and unfair. But the new documents, many of which were only declassified last year, show that even after America had entered the war and when there was already significant information about the Nazis' plans and policies, he worked for and profited from companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler's rise to power. It has also been suggested that the money he made from these dealings helped to establish the Bush family fortune and set up its political dynasty

Often times people from many different parties, liberal, progressive, democrat, RINO, republican, conservative, liberterian, to name a few agree onthe right or wrong of an idea. This is one of those times. It will be a great day when the people from diverse party affiliation come together to support or DEFEAT ideas that are good or bad for the country.

I don't listen to fox news. But I'm smart enough to know who the party is that is and has been in power for several years. I also know who the current pres. is and what he has been up to since the day he became a community upriser! I was just up town, saw a lot of Minnisota license plates, perfect example, the liberal loving state, so progressive that they are dead broke and need to come to right wing N.D. to make a living, I LOVE IT !!!!!

It always amazes me that the righties all DON'T listen to Fox news, Rush, Shawn, Glenn, Bill and all the rest. Your pants must be full, animal, because your denials don't hold water. No guts to admit the truth, but you regurgitate the garbage they spew. Get a life.

"Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past are certain to miss the future." John F. Kennedy

Looks like we have a lot of leftovers from the Bush Cheney that cannot get past them and into the future. They will spend their whole life living in regrets and die from feeling so sorry for themselves.. Pathetic isn't it?

(rugbyreader, wilygarr, varicose) are just a few. They refuse to look at what Obama is doing but rather keep trying to blame everything on Bush.

Whatever will they do in 2017 when their is no Obama in office? Guess that will be Bushes fault too..

Obama: Phone, Internet data collection Obama, speaking publicly for the first time about his administration's mass collection of phone and Internet data, said Friday that the programs have made a difference in tracking terrorists and are not tantamount to "Big Brother."

Oh but hold on little o said we've won the war on terrorism. We have them on the run...but however I'm reading your emails and listening to your phone calls...you stupid people I've got you fooled...It's ME ME ME I I I...hold on folks It's my fault It's Bush's fault...

I know that each President isn't prefect. But dang I really find it hard to believe that you people can not see that this President did cross over the line and infringed on our rights...but you still defend him...WHY????????

Centerfield Anyone with just half a brain knows how to research a comment.. Guess Its asking too much of the left to find where the comments come from isn't it..

So you dispute the fact I have 120 channels? Come on over I will flip thru them for you..

Who is in charge? Hillary? Holder? Michelle? Just who is the Commander and Chief of the USA. It sure ain't Obama he doesn't know whats going on.

And you need me to back this up with facts too? Just what is it you need facts on centerfield???

Yes Varicose I do have ideas on all you requested..

"Have any ideas on the economy? Like jobs, tax reform, middle class benefits that have alluded most of us?"

Its called a leader.. You leftasses voted Obama back in. He didn't find you a job in 4 years so you decided to ride the unemployment check for another 4 years.. ooops the checks ran out and now your blaming Bush I suspect..

ANY good POTUS would have turned this around by now. Look at history,.This is the longest period of high unemployment ever.. Who is the leader? We don't have one. We got this dunce sitting in the WH or hanging out on the golf course.. has done absolutely nothing but cause more heartbreak for the people. 2014 You all need insurance.. Good Luck with that.. All low income will quit and jump on medicaid and welfare because they will otherwise have to pay out their entire check for insurance..

Too bad the stupid fool in the White House isn't smart enough to comprehend the*****he is crating for the

The former constitutional law professor -- who rose to prominence in part by attacking what he called the government's post-Sept. 11 encroachment on civil liberties -- has undergone a philosophical evolution, arriving at what he now considers the right balance between national security prerogatives and personal privacy.

"I came in with a healthy skepticism about these programs," Obama said in San Jose on Friday. "My team evaluated them. We scrubbed them thoroughly. We actually expanded some of the oversight, increased some of safeguards. But my assessment and my team's assessment was that they help us prevent terrorist attacks."

"On net," the president added, "it was worth us doing."

????My Team????? Who runs the country? Who is "his team" that does all his thinking? Is he not capable of making a decision himself?

His team? Valerie Jarrett? Michelle? Hillary? Did he mean to say his harem?
