Back in 2007, Barack Hugo Obama thought spying on terrorists in the United States was a bad thing. I know, it seems like I must be kidding, but I’m not.
They guy who instead approved of using the NSA to spy on every single American (with particular attention to political opponents and Conservatives) once criticized George Bush for spying on actual terrorists operating here in America. What a big hypocrite President Obama is.
We remember this…
Obama Flips on Nailing Phone Companies for Helping Bush “Spy” on Americans!6/20/8 – NelsonGuirado.com’s Politics & Culture: “(10/24/07) Obama Spokesman Bill Burton: “To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.”…Barack Obama Now Supports A Bill Reauthorizing Electronic Surveillance That Grants Immunity To Telecommunications Companies. Obama: “Under this compromise legislation, an important tool in the fight against terrorism will continue. It does, however, grant retroactive immunity, and I will work in the Senate to remove this provision so that we can seek full accountability for past offenses. So I support the compromise, but do so with a firm pledge that as President, I will carefully monitor the program, review the report by the Inspectors General, and work with the Congress to take any additional steps I deem necessary to protect the lives and the liberty of the American people.”
Any additional steps HE deems necessary? I suppose he meant he would use the IRS and the NSA to spy on every human being in the nation and to decline any Tea Party request to form a group that might oppose him in any way. Any Inspectors General who got in his way were simply fired.
My how things have fundamentally changed in this nation. Change nobody believes in.
