How does blaming Obama for NSA spying policies forced upon us by the George W Bush and Dick Cheney Administration and a complicit Congress to go along with it in the name of national security going to change anything? I have to point out that three Democrats, Rush Holt , Mark Udall , and Ron Wyden, with President Obama's cooperation and support, are attempting to create spying reform legislation ,but facing stiff opposition from Republican leaders.

and the gov continues to tear down the US's tech sector. When that is gone, what good is all this spying going to do when no one uses services inside the USA besides americans?

All of you whom agree that the NSA spying is a good thing, please remember that when our tech industry is only a shadow of its former self.
