    and, basically, the entire discussion about transparency.

    You seem to think it had something to do with covert intelligence operations.

    I'm sorry you're so bitter and ignorant.

    Oh, and you couldn't name a single President who ran a more, or even equally, transparent administration. None of you could.

      So your with Trump on full transparency of Obama's birth records?  wait that does not fit the picture?  maybe the post is not about transparency?

        It is a hit piece aimed directly at the president. lets stick to the issues.  and please mature from the childish name calling.

        Here's a thought: when you respond to what I write, respond to what I write.

        Oh, and calling me "assholish" and then complaining about name-calling isn't exactly Einstein, either.

        •  I ment to post to Angryallens comment (2+ / 0-)

          on the assholeish comment. and was still in that vein of thought when I commented back this morning. freaking getting lost in the threads.   I think we both have a problem with this diary and its lack of respect toward the president.
           I am fully anti spying, but I can do it while still respecting and crediting this president for much of the positive issues he has moved forward. I also found angry allens comment on how the president serves him individually quite distasteful and that is what I find assholeish.

          •  That occurred to me afterwards. (1+ / 0-)

            As I thought about it, I realized that your comment wasn't just unresponsive to me, but was making almost identical points to my own.

            That Donald Trump point was spot-on.

            I agree that these revelations have opened up some important conversations (the structure of the FISA court, for instance); I just wish we were having them, instead of people declaring their undying loyalty to their latest poster child and restarting old flame wars nobody cares about.
