Bush’s NSA Director: Obama Has Been More Transparent On Surveillance Than We Were

The man who served as the director of the National Security Agency under former President George W. Bush said Wednesday that President Barack Obama has been more transparent about top secret surveillance programs than his predecessor.

Gen. Michael Hayden, former NSA director, praised Obama for resuming those programs.

"We should just take a sense of satisfaction that what we were doing, once candidate Obama became President Obama, he saw that these were of great value and frankly, were being very carefully done," Hayden told CNN. "National security looks a little different from the Oval Office than it does from a hotel room in Iowa."

Hayden applauded Obama for making the details of the NSA's data collection available to members of Congress.

"Frankly, the Obama administration was more transparent about this effort than we were in the Bush administration," Hayden said. "I mean, they made this meta data collection activity available to all the members of Congress. Not just all the members of the intelligence committees."

Sean Hannity sure has changed his tune.

The rambunctious Fox News host on Monday lashed into the Obama administration over the revelations of widespread Internet and phone surveillance by the National Security Agency, warning that "anarchy and tyranny will follow."

But back in 2006, when a similar NSA spying scandal was unearthed during President George W. Bush's administration, Hannity wasn't so concerned. He came out as a staunch defender of the NSA then, saying it was "staggering to me we are even debating the use of these techniques in this country even at this time."

Media Matters put together a mashup of Hannity's comments, comparing his position then and now. Watch the whole video above.

Tea Party Groups Suing The IRS Never Suffered Any Harm

The most high profile of the cases is the one brought by uber-rightist legal publicity hound Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice. He has assembled 25 Tea Party groups into an action seeking both administrative and financial relief. The problem is that he is suing under a provision that addresses cases where applicants were seeking tax-exempt status for donations (501c3), but whose applications were denied or delayed. However, 23 of the 25 plaintiffs were not seeking tax-exempt status at all. They were merely applying for non-profit status (501c4). Therefore, the delays (there were no denials) would not have harmed the organizations fundraising ability because they were never structured to give donors a tax break.

That is a significant discovery because these hoaxters have been whining for weeks that their efforts to raise money were hampered by the IRS actions. As it turns out, there was nothing stopping them raising funds other than the fact that most Americans were repulsed by their extremist, right-wing agenda.

In addition, the complaints of the Teabaggers reveal that the IRS had good cause to subject them to extra scrutiny. They openly admit their belief that the IRS actions contributed to the electoral losses of Mitt Romney and other Republicans who may have won if these groups were not hamstrung by bureaucracy. But not only was there nothing preventing them from engaging in their work, their admissions show that they were, in fact, political operatives and not entitled to preferential tax treatment.

So once again, reality has encroached on the designs of the Tea Party to position themselves as “social welfare” organizations with no political motives. From the start they were deeply entangled with the Republican Party and their mission was always to advance GOP candidates and policies. And now we see that they are abusing the legal system for undeserved relief and for, of course, publicity. Expect these cases to be dismissed in short order, after which the Teabaggers will bellow some nonsense about the liberal courts denying them justice.

You righties think that if you lie about something long enuff, it will eventually come true. The truth is, none of it's even a conversation in the minority communities. We knew by the redneck vow made in the beginning to make Obama a 1 term president. We knew by the birther attempts. We knew by the challenge of his legal status, the unlawful attempt to search & seize his property, documents of school records, applications for college ect... We knew, when all else fails, you all would show your true colors (red in the neck area), you all would resort to scandalous tactics. It won't work either! There's not a single political aspect you could point to & say " it hasn't improved under Obama," because it's a lie. But you keep lying for comfort, see where that got you in Nov! It only makes the truth more blatant when revealed!
Unemployment has never been higher among blacks.

There is a bipartisan group of blacks making their voices heard against Obama's immigration bill. They claim all the studies show that immigrants take jobs away from blacks.

Looks like not all blacks agree with you.
