    If Obama is a civil liberty disaster, it is because he had excellent guides and teachers. The Patriot Act was most egregious in its unmitigated attempt to curtail American citizens. And I do believe it was Bush and Cheney who used communication giants like AT&T to spy on American citizens without benefit of first obtaining a subpoena to do so - talk about circumventing the law which is always an attack on America's civil liberties.

    The real attack on our civil liberties continue because of arrogant politicians who are unwilling or unable to accept their share of the responsibility and those who blindly support them. Obama may have in too many incidences followed the lead set by Bush and Company with regard to policies aimed at further stripping Americans of their civil rights, but he most certainly did not spearhead it. If you must place blame, which the majority of conservative Americans are driven to do, start at the beginning, not in the middle.

    Signing the extension of the Patriot Act was a real low point.
