So the President is okay on spying on Americans, but not "allied" leaders. No you know where you stand as Americans.

He is so clueless. Obama is a fcuking joke to Germans, heck majority of Europeans think Obama is a fcuking clown. We have more respect for Bush than Obama will ever have.

What's the big deal?

Teabaggers supported and defended the practice, until Obama became president.

His problem is, How do I maintain this "Power enhancing practice" without making other countries too mad at me. Since I already have the American people, who cares about them?

That's because teabaggers are brain dead and only hear what they want to.

Rannity laid it all out.

Teabaggers, naturally thought his "opinion" was the truth.

December 17, 2005

In acknowledging the message was true, President Bush took aim at the messenger Saturday, saying that a newspaper jeopardized national security by revealing that he authorized wiretaps on U.S. citizens after September 11.

After The New York Times reported, and CNN confirmed, a claim that Bush gave the National Security Agency license to eavesdrop on Americans communicating with people overseas, the president said that his actions were permissible, but that leaking the revelation to the media was illegal.

During an unusual live, on-camera version of his weekly radio address, Bush said such authorization is "fully consistent" with his "constitutional responsibilities and authorities."

Teabaggers thought they only spied on us and supported and defended that?

Par for the course when it comes the gullibility of a teabagger.

Every Topix political discussion attracts the same "personalities" whose only agenda is to denigrate President Obama by using the same redundant rhetoric repeated by Faux Views along with personal attacks and class insults. They have nothing new to say and make little effort to discuss the actual topic.

Recently, however, there has been an epidemic of new personalities with no obvious point of view or agenda other than to make noise and disrupt discussion by babbling unintelligible gibberish. Typically posing as pseudo-Asian according to "location" and affected language patterns for extended runs of posts, the same person adds to the mix equally unintelligible and pointless gibberish by posting as other personalities with other locations.

While it may do no good to to try to argue with the insulting President haters, at least it is excruciatingly clear where they stand. However, posting long runs of gibberish adds nothing to discussions and is totally pointless. At best, it reflects fragmented thinking or at worst, someone motivation only to disrupt any effort at meaningful discussion.

Every Topix progressive tells others who view things different then they do that they are this and that and there is no relationship most of the time. I, for example am still waiting for less taxes more freedom and less interference in world affairs as the original tea party people spouted. Still waiting for that. The progressive dems and the rino or neo con repubs of course do not believe in those things as the laws past keeps proving their true convictions. So we see how false the tea party is as each election they spout, wait until the next one as the nation keeps moving to total tyranny.

Obama would rather spy on Americans and then use the IRS to stomp on his oponents free speech.

The NSA has been "spying on our allies" since it was established post-WWII.

Only dumbasses believe we won't continue. It's in our national interests to know WTF is going on in the world.

But hey, tell her anything...

All you bastards that throw the homo card KNOW deep in your bowels that you're only putting on a show to convince the rest of us that you're macho dudes.

When you're really on your knees for the Clerk @ the liquor store, or for homie on the corner with your next rock, or just the guy that runs the Best Buy, so you can watch gay porn with him in the back room, under his desk.
