60 million calls MONITORED? Really? Who did the listening? Over what time frame. While I understand the anger over the NSA (and to a degree, I agree with that anger), but the headline is inflaming the discussion, not advancing it.

The current administration has already released a statement stating that the president knew nothing about this.

It is amazing how little our president knows!

And once again, an agency which reports directly to the President claims that Obama knew nothing about any of this. And the press quietly accepts that...

Everyone will be listening to everyone else soon. Technology is just getting started.

Whether barack knew or didn't know doesn't change much.

He should have known and he should have stopped it.

Either way barack, you're president. Act like a president.

Oops...my bad...

Turns out we have proof now that the President did know about it, approved it, and the White House was just lying.

I guess the President does know more about things than I thought.

It was just an attempt to initiate some CYA in case we overlooked the fact that he really did know about it and approved it.

This is what over half of us voted for. We have heard the story so often that we are becoming numb to it.

But...hey...We can all console ourselves with the oft repeated mantra - "...Not as bad as Bush!"

Everyone feel better now?

Obama didn't know about this spying, he didn't know about Benghazi, he didn't know about fast and furious, he didn't know about the IRS abuses of power, he didn't know about the Obamacare fiasco, he didn't know the stimulus package would not work. I wonder if Obama knows he is President! The truth is folks, Obama is lying to us, again and the media and the Democratic party swears to it to protect him from any form of accountability!

Obama did know of Travon Martin.

This is thanks to the patriot act and like minded fear mongering after 9/11. Now we're the peeping Tom's of the world. Nice.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Samson01,
Amazing how little he knows in some ways, but not surprising in sooooooo many ways. And you are surprised that he lies??

Redshirt07,
So you are saying BO should have stopped it, but did not?

bungalow,
typical, cannot defend, so you attack - enjoy the dark side.

tell me, do you condone BO's continued spying of our allies?

do you condone his response to Europe, which they deemed unsatisfactory to the point they are considering sanctions?

If you properly interpreted my prior post, you would see that I have no problem with it - they do it to us and have forever - it's all part of international relations (unfortunately). But your initial response is to attack anyone who has anything negative to say about your hero.

And this is a political???? headline? really?? If the headline read, "Obama shot his wife on national TV" (which, of course, he would NEVER do - just using this as an extreme example so don't block it, DN) YOU would claim it is a "political" headline.
