So the other day on Facebook an acquaintance was saying how funny it is that conservative pundits are not happy with the NSA scandal after they supported the legislation during the Bush years. What a buncha hypocrites, hahaha.
Well, I’ll tell ya what i think is funny. Obama takes the “war crimes” and
“abuses” of the Bush era, expands them exponentially, and now they are just fine. Now that is funny. BHO expands the drone war to kill civilians, bomb countries that are our allies and kill Americans without due process of law. No problem.
From an article by Rick Jensen vis-a-vis the NSA program:
During the Bush administration, the program was publicly described as tracking foreigners associated in some way with terrorist organizations as well as domestic communications with such foreign threats. We were led to believe there was meaningful oversight of the program.
Now, Americans have learned that Obama’s NSA is gathering all phone calls, emails, credit card usage, Skype and online video of every American without such oversight. (http://www.rightwingnews.com/column-2/democrats-ok-with-obama-spying-on-you-not-bush/)
Then, after the President announces he won the War on Terror by assassinating Bin Laden he still spies on Americans on a massive scale. And now it turns out that not only does he know that I call Papa Murphy’s weekly he also knows what I order (see http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57589495-38/nsa-admits-listening-to-u.s-phone-calls-without-warrants/). We don’t need no steeenking warrants, hahahaha.
In the privacy of his office Nixon says he would like to use the IRS to audit his ememies. His IRS Director says no. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/05/26/irs-chief-defied-nixon/2360951/, The current President announces on the campaign trail that he is going to punish his enemies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riVzMzX4hiE. Then the Most Transparent Administration Evah! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXWTdTnhebs says they committed no crime and takes the Fifth! Oh the irony.
OK, this stuff isn’t as funny as “We have to vote for it to find out what is in it”…but ya gotta laugh to keep from crying.
Nixon and Bush were amateurs…audacity…or vindication? I gotta go…
