  •  I love this passage: (3+ / 0-)
    What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a U.S. person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls, and the NSA cannot target your emails … and have not. They cannot and have not, by law and by rule, and unless they — and usually it wouldn’t be “they,” it’d be the FBI — go to a court, and obtain a warrant, and seek probable cause, the same way it’s always been, the same way when we were growing up and we were watching movies, you want to go set up a wiretap, you got to go to a judge, show probable cause….
    The President is definitely unlike Bush in so many ways, especially in terms of his grasp of the issues.

    Thanks for this post FiredUpInCA, nobody can slap back at those who spend their days accusing this President of doing wrong as effectively as this President.

    I can guarantee you that if this was diary purporting to show where the President had broken the law, there would be a frenzy of activity, and hundreds of recommends, but, as it is...Obama stating his case and doing it effectively....

    Shhh, let's read and just move on....
