No, I saw the exact same crap under Bush, you don't see it because your nose is firmly planted in the GOP's posterior.
Clinton had Bush beat hands down in auditing groups and individuals.

But we've never seen anything like what we're seeing now.

In a major crisis the parties will come together for the good of the US. Without this we have deadlock.
Similar to the situation in 1940.
I've never seen more crossing of political lines over the NSA and PRISM programs since...well, since I don't know when.

It's very good for the country - especially with the blurring of lines over Obamacare too these days.

Shooting The Messenger is sometimes a tactical necessity for Liberals. Truth, once let loose, is a dangerous thing.

Yes you idiot, it says "declare" and "war", not authorize spending or the "use of military force".
In the 1976 bill? It states that the Congress must explicitly state "We declare war"? No, it doesn't.

You are just being silly and cranky now.

After 4 hours of hearing you talk absolute non sequitor, inane, innocuous Claptrap, they'd place a garbage bag over your head and set you in the corner until Garbage Day.

Someone needs to take this to the SCOTUS - IF the SCOTUS has any balls to tackle it.

War Powers is irrelevant to the discussion thus further illustrating your complete idiocy.
You don't have to keep doing it, we get it.
It was relevant to the post I was responding to.

You're being a grumpy old fool stomping around insisting it has to be YOUR way without offering anything to back up your claim.

You have SQUAT and you know it, but you idiotically think calling names is the answer to your dilemma.

Maybe you can fool your buds or make them cower with this behavior. However, in the real world acting obtuse doesn't work.

You are responding to a belligerent old fool whose ego is so attached to being right that he doesn't care how dense, idiotic or childish he looks. He will stomp his feet all the way calling others names.

Since the Church already expressly forbids homosexuality I think you must mean that they need to do the same with pedophiles.
Still defending the rapers of children?
Wow.
No one knows what church really means or
how it gives us comfort.
Church has nothing to do with evil.
Homosexuals and pedophiles are people that
enjoy being mean. They like to hurt someone else.
They know it is wrong.
It is self abuse.

Because the government is becoming so "expansive", to quote Axelrod, that anyone can spy on anyone for nefarious reasons that has nothing to do with foreigners and everything to do with domestic political enemies.
If the IRS had gone after liberals and liberal organizations en masse under the Bush administration and asking for the names and addresses of their associates, you'd be s--tting a brick if you knew PRISM under Bush was also collecting personal internet data.
Your selective memory acting up again?

When the IRS targeted liberals
Under George W. Bush, it went after the NAACP, Greenpeace and even a liberal church

Bull, things will always be "worse than ever before" as long as there's a Democrat in the White House.

Y'all are just so painfully obvious that I quickly lose interest. When you hold your party's feet to the same fire you'll earn a little credibility.
