    bush derangement syndrome: the need to brush aside anything Obama and blame GW Bush. Reasons for this politically debilitating need? Liberalism.

    It’s not Bush derangement syndrome. Obama is guilty of the NSA spying and his CIA director Brennan did lie to Congress, but the torture WAS under Bush, the NSA spying program started under Bush, the War on Terror was under Bush, and the Bush administration did lie to Congress on a regular basis.

    Obama has his issues, but the majority of the issues are due to continuing Bush policies. That doesn’t excuse Obama, but it does mean we shouldn’t be pretending they started with Obama.

    Bush relied on a under funded Intelligence community thanks to Clinton. 9/11 was planned under Clinton and executed under Bush. several other non-US intelligence agency backed up the US assessment. And there has been torture used under every administration but you only here about when Republicans are involved. By the way Congressman Obama voted for the NSA spying program and as President he expanded reach.
    Please do not let the truth get in the way.

    How about we trace all our problems back to G. Washington.

    “… the NSA spying program started under Bush,”

    This is a common misperception. In my opinion it started with the “Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act” of 1968. On signing this act Lyndon Johnson said “But the Congress, in my judgement, has taken an unwise and potentially dangerous step by sanctioning eavesdropping and wiretapping by Federal, State, and local law officials in an almost unlimited variety of situations.”

    The real biggy was actually signed by Jimmy Carter in 1978, the “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act”. Upon signing Jimmy Carter stated “It will assure FBI field agents and others involved in intelligence collection that their acts are authorized by statute and, if a U.S. person’s communications are concerned, by a court order.” A court was established by this act to issue warrants. Through 2012, 33,942 cases were approved with only 11 disapproved. It seems this court was no more than a rubber stamp for whatever agency requested a court order. There were a couple of acts between the FISA and the Patriot Act expanding FISA capabilities.

    The next big one is, of course, the Patriot Act. This one amended and expanded the FISA authorizations for spying on U.S. citizens. Then comes the government’s, invention of the “National Security Letter”. From 2005 through 2012 there were 143,364 of these issued involving 53,593 U.S. citizens. President Obama has extended the Patriot Act’s life twice.

    There are a great many things within these laws and court decisions on them that puts George Orwell’s concept of spying on the populace in the minor leagues.

    @tiredofit but the torture WAS under Bush, "

    Yet those who were “tortured” are still alive. If you were tortured under a radical Muslim, you would wish and receive death. Obama Used information gained from this to “get” bin la din. And it is the informant, the doctor who helped us, well he is being tortured in a jail cell for his involvement in helping the USA.
    Plus Obama apologizing yet again, for no real reason, just out of the blue, The USA is bad, only emboldens those who wish us harm.

    Obama has his issues, but the majority of the issues are due to continuing Bush policies."
    The only thing Obama “continued” was when he took credit for the surge in the war and our troops being on the ground creating a relativity stable middle East. Obama then pulled out, bugged out, kept his political policy no boots on the ground. Unlike GW he could not and did not want to negotiate, Easy to cut and run. That is not GW, that all Obama. But now Obama who is the biggest carrier of GW derangement, Blames GW for the frame work left that Obama could not execute, He blames GW for “faulty intelligence” That ISIS would come to power. So Obama is now blaming GW for the “war” he has to get back into.

    And is it not sad that Obama is treating the military with more discontent then Clinton. Obama is also cutting budget to boots on the ground intelligences! Why just the other day Obama blamed lack of intelegence that ISIS would come to power. Makes you worry about what is out there, when the last time we had this much clueness in the White house we got hit.

    Knew about the act under Carter, but not the one under Johnson, thank you for letting us know that one. I enjoyed, in a nervous fingerbiting king of way, you whole comment with one minor disagreement, the gov’t has the power to exceed Mr. Orwell’s concept in 1984, and perhaps even Animal Farm, but I don’t believe we’ve reached the point where they take the same actions Big Brother….yet.
    Thank you for your continued contributions to the debates.
    Respectfully,
