    well actually he is worse than bush....since he exceeded the limits set by bush....

    NYT: NSA intercepts exceed limits set by Congress - The New York Times- msnbc.com

    WASHINGTON - The National Security Agency intercepted private e-mail messages and phone calls of Americans in recent months on a scale that went beyond the broad legal limits established by Congress last year, government officials said in recent interviews.

    Yes, the Bush power grab was a legitimate concern by those paying attention.

    What Obama is doing is simply expanding that power grab - and so the concern is justifiable in its escalation.

    I wonder what period of time covers "recent months?" From the article it sounds like back to last July.

    Good journalism...:confused:

    i believe the article is talking about the bush administration, however, the fact that they do not mention the bush administration shows that both administrations are involved. this is evidenced by:

    he renewed but mouths about "safeguards"....yeah right, this from obama who promised not to vote for FISA....obama is worse than bush....i predict one termer
