Yahoo: Why does Obama talk like Rand Paul but govern like Dick Cheney?

If all had gone according to plan, Americans would have learned in 25 years that President Barack Obama — once a liberal constitutional law professor — authorized a top-secret National Security Agency program to monitor the logs of their phone calls.

The court order allowing the government to inspect all Verizon phone records was slated to be declassified on April 12, 2038, when today’s political leaders had passed from the stage and were beyond political accountability. Until then, American citizens were supposed to have no way of knowing that the NSA knew when they were good (phoning Grandma for six minutes on her birthday) and when they were bad (arranging an adulterous rendezvous with a 19-minute call to an ex-girlfriend from the office).

Instead, in a major rebuke to Obama’s reputation as a purported defender of civil liberties, the Guardian, the British newspaper, published a top-secret court order Wednesday night that requires Verizon to provide the NSA with access to all of its phone logs. In one of the more chilling passages in the four-page document, Verizon is not allowed “to disclose to any other person that the FBI or NSA has sought or obtained tangible things under this Order.”
This was the ultimate expression of the doctrine of don’t ask, don’t tell.

As Someone Here Once Explained...

A Constitutional lawyer is someone who has figured how to get around the spirit and intent of the Constitution.

Same goes for a Constitutional judge.

Its so sad, how easily Americans can be fooled...

The only way it makes sense is to understand that the entire nation has had its education stolen from them in State schools.

Fortunately the free market is quickly replacing state schools, and an educated population may be in our grasp.

Only sad if your on the inside looking out

If your on the outside looking in, very exciting time of change.

Sad that so many are on the inside looking out which is making them sad.

CIA Has Been Running The Country For 12 Years

That's the reason. Neither Bush/Cheney, not Barack Obama, have any say in what gets survielled. They, and congress, are even given talking points on what can and cannot be discussed about our internal spying apparatus. The attitude of the NSA and FBI leaders is that they will be in charge for their entire lives. Politicians come and go (and they go sooner if they don't play along)!

12 years?

Think about it, Bush Sr was CIA director and the VP to Reagan with two assassination attempts, then president, then his Arkansas helper and friend, Bill Clinton then his son and now a full blow lifelong operative. I could probably trace the connections right back to Kennedy but I'll only deal with the obvious ones. Just this short list takes us back to 1984, and ain't that just so fitting?

Why? Because Barry is a good propagandist ...

... deception is Tool #1.

Because they are all the same thing.

A bunch of self enriching puppets who will say and do anything as long as their greeds are fulfilled.

Birds of a feather flock togeather.
