And the plot thickens.

Isn't that what brought Nixon down?

That's a given. It's more of a confirmation rather than a revelation as far as I am concerned. This is what professional politicians do. This is what professional politics and government bureaucracies perpetuate. It breads contempt. It's all about maintaining their status quo.

When it comes right down to it many of these government types are nothing but power hungry Napoleon complexed punks there for power. And what to many wind up doing with power-they abuse it.

Except there is NO proof Obama has broken ANY laws. Only in the fantasies of right-wingers, who despise the credible facts and truth.

Nixon was brought down because he was part of a conspiracy to commit a crime. Obama has broken NO laws.

Read the article, this is from the days when Bush was president, though it has been continued by the current administration...
In the last paragraph "NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden also claimed that as an analyst, he could wiretap the phones of anyone, including judges or the president of the United States if he had access to the right information." That is what ought to be scary. If junior employees, contractors etc. can wiretap on their own the potential for abuse goes up exponentially. The problem may not be the President but the 'Security Organization' in part or as a whole. For example, look at the anger shown in Topix comments, what if some or all of them could spy on those they dislike.

That's right. Obama can't be part of any conspiracy.

He has NO CLUE about what's going on as Commander in Chief.

No one tells him anything. <LOL>

If obama was Prime Minister of the U.K. his government would have terminated by a vote of no confidence by now.Of course in the U.S. a President is given four year terms-unless he is impeached.

Read the article. The NSA under Bush was after Obama when he was a Congressman.

That's what I thought, no one bothered to read the article. Talk about some biased posters, you guys take the cake!

It's all about ethics and Snowden doesn't have any. Any employee of a major carrier can do the same thing but they don't because they are not paranoid,

There is more, and more proof every day as these people step forward to tell some more of Obama;s secrets. He could had had 4 more years of people covering his tracks, but he decided to spy on reporters. That is what they consider over the line. Now they will dig up all his secrets, and put them out one by one. So funny.

<quoted text>Perhaps Obama was breaking as many laws then as he is now. There were plenty of reasons why. Bill Ayers for one. Tony Rezco for two. Reverend Wright for three. Bush's administration did it for national security. And they were justified to do so. 100% justified. Obama Bin Lyin hung around with VERY creepy people.
ObamaLamaDingDong uses the NSA for political gain and to blackmail people.. Don't you read the papers, dummy?
Haven't seem any proof yet. That is required unless you forgot about it. If he has broken the law the Republicans would impeach. Don't see them doing that.

You can't prove anything to a liberal. They know it all, except they are wrong. No one has to prove anything t a Democrat, or anyone else.
