GaussianInteger, I don't disagree that spying has been going on as long as it's been possible. But, would you not agree that this guy has carried it way further and carried the Patriot Act to whole new levels, and damaged us more for it?
I never thought I would say this, but Hillary may be an improvement over this guy. At least we didn't suffer all the foreign and domestic problems we have with him. He has divided this country like none before him. I know, I know, the division is the fault of all the opponents he's created.
I can see your point, GaussianInteger, but this guy takes the cake. He hides more about his life, education, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the Not so Affordable Healthcare Act, than anyone can keep up with. Opponents couldn't create this much phony crap if they wanted to. Everything about him you look at has missing pieces and more questions that he won't and/or can't be answered.
Only the down-in-the-tank-for-him people could stand with him on these subjects. Anyone with half a brain has to be asking questions, whether they admit it or not.
I think his legacy, in time, will prove him to be the most dangerous and corrupt president we've ever known, and will have done more damage to the US and our dealings abroad (spying and such) than any before him.
Got it GaussianInteger. I used to claim to be Republican, left them. Now consider myself conservative, but try to be open minded. What I am saying is at 51 years old, I can't recall anyone coming close to being as smug, arrogant, etc, as this guy is. He's either orchestrating everything in his administration, which he should be doing, or he's the most incompetent person to ever hold that office. He hides everything and knows nothing about it when it's found. Hmmm... Maybe at night, not last night.
I'm even allowing him a little slack in the campaign arena. But, this is way past that.
What a cop out, Gussy. No one does it like this administration. Hell, even Richard Nixon is kind of getting exonerated during this fiasco.
PT, you more astute than I knew. (borzwah)
PT, they all know he lied, they just have too much "compassion" to admit it, so they're happy lying along with him.
I could believe he misspoke when he said there are 57 states in the US. I think what we're dealing with here is a mispromise. I've given up on the HOPE, and had enough of the CHANGE.
I wouldn't be so convinced he lied if it weren't for so much other smoke and fire around these other subjects...In Obama’s campaign, he promised to “eliminate entirely” income tax for seniors making less than $50,000. On an interview on The Today Show Obama claimed he won the Michigan & Illinois Primaries. My father served in World War II. Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk. We got back Every Dime we Used to Rescue the Banks with Interest. I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. The only involvement I had with Acorn was doing some stuff with the justice department. No more Illegal Wire Tapping of American Citizens. The Promise to Walk the Picket Line if Workers are Denied the Right to Bargain. Lower health care premiums by $2,500. And the one that's going to bite him in the butt the worst... Those were just demonstrations in Benghazi.
