    ummm, i thought Obama couldn't do stuff like this:

    Meanwhile, Obama's on the verge of getting immigration reform and fillibuster reform through.

    cuz we've all been told time and time and time and time again that he can't do that - that's Congress. of course, we only hear that when it's on an issue that's important to a lot of the actual left and only when it's something that Obama doesn't want to seem to do, so he and his defenders want to take any blame off of him.

    we've even heard that this very week regarding the spying on all Americans that his NSA has been doing. "it was Congress's fault! he was just using the tools they gave him! leave Obama alone!"

    you can't have it both ways.

    and:

    Sorry, but these are far more important to me right now.
    who gives a crap at what YOU personally want right now. just because YOU think those issues are the most important issues does not make it so. it just makes you a man with an opinion, and well, you know what they say about opinions....

    so you didn't like the PATRIOT Act  when it was originally passed, but since it did pass then, it was a done deal and wasn't worthy of protesting anymore? not even on its renewal? or how about the FISA vote?  fcol, with friends like you... geez... wouldn't want to share a foxhole with ya...

    you should change your user name; you're certainly doing the character injustice. Orwell would be ashamed. you sir are not even close to Winston Smith.

    now you - you go run along and be a good German now while the rest of us digest the smoking gun, what the proof of it means, and what possible options we have to fight against this blatant disregard of our Constitutionally guaranteed rights....

    The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those that speak it. ~George Orwell

      If Greenwald broke the story, we're like Beck fans.  The story itself doesn't matter because Leftbaggerz!  

      Makes perfect sense if all you do is appeals to authority.  Honestly, these folks would have flunked debate class.  It's not worth your time.  

      Bad things aren't bad! And anyway, there's mitigation!

      •  the story is there is no story (0+ / 0-)

        I hate to break it to the Greenwald Cult, but there's no there there.  

        It's all been known for years.  

        But don't let that stop the purity trolling.

          You've now hit all of the words on my apologist bingo card.  Thanks.  You can now go back to the Spew and high five all your buddies who hate the left more than they hate Limbaugh.

          •  Again I ask... (0+ / 0-)

            What new piece of information did you learn about the NSA that we didn't know when the story broke in 2007?

            But get hysterical if you'd like.  It's about as logical as Issa on Benghazi.  

            •  Read the documents (0+ / 0-)

              At the very least, James Clapper has committed perjury within the last week.  It's not up to me to read the documents to you, even if greenwald has lefty cooties.  Sometimes you need to ignore the messenger to consume the message.  If you choose not you, we are arguing without the same knowledge.

          why didn't you leak it with supporting evidence? All we had were he said she said now we have hard evidence that has made not only the agencies involved but the president admit they have been spying on American citizens. There is the sand stick your head back in it if you want but don't attempt to dissuade those that actually give a fuck.

          There are no sacred cows.
