This is nothing new…
“The Verizon guy. Thanks Verizon guy for setting up a network for O to spy on us all.”No, he set it up for W. O merely took over where W left off. Nothing has changed. Why is it a scandal now, and not when it was originally authorized?
Very good question.
Phone records not wire taps, oh yeah, facts don’t matter to Ramirez.
Ms. Ima, until you can admit the role that Bush, et.al took in using the system of acquiring Metadata (mostly simple tracking of numbers and call directions, locations, only looking at actual communications when a warrant request is approved by a court) there is no point in trying to blame Obama.
Had Obama said to us, "I’m tossing the NSA system of tracking phone, email traffic and such to find potential terrorists, you and the other Baggers would have exploded in rage and called him a sympathizer with the terrorists. The GOP almost to a person supported the Patriot act and the results about which you are bleating today—just a bit hypocritical, I’d say.
Oh, yeah, I forgot. Since the IRS Service Manager, a self identified conservative Republican admitted that he was responsible for the decision to look specifically at groups with “tea party” and “patriot” in their names, and we now know that Obama and the administration had nothing to do with it—when do you and Ramirez apologize to Obama and Co.?
Oh, I know: When hell freezes over.
