Does the rationale of the feds using secret cyber data mining for national security's sake take precedence over an individual's privacy rights?

  1. Yes
  2. No

As Bob said, most likely every administration does things that we don't know about but it doesn't make it right. I was very concerned about the loss of privacy rights under President Bush and how can anyone think it's just fine after six scandals. Come on...if you think it's ok for Obama to do this to his political enemies, do you want to risk the next President?

President Obama was not in the Senate when the Patriot Act was first passed in 2001, he did not take office till 2005 and voted for its reauthorization in 2006.

I was listening to a replay of a rant Obama went on back when Bush was pushing the Patriot Act. I believe he stated that "there is no excuse" for such action. I suppose we just blame this current issue on Bush since he started it, right? While we're at it, we should also blame Bush for the current state of warfare in the middle east, the current issue of Fast & Furious, and so on, because the Obama administration is apparently nothing more than an extension of the Bush administration. Hope and Change? Forward?

The leadership of the Obama administration isn't unraveling.....its unraveled. Game Over.

"Topic: data mining and privacy invasion. All my posts: data mining and privacy invasion.

What's the problem?"

Your kidding right? Just yesterday, the question was about taxing online poker and you used it as an occasion to go on an anti Obama rant about guns. You regularly hijack topics so you can feel good about yourself. Not calling you racist, just a one trick pony (and a tiring one)

Nice job Phoenix. How soon (or conveniently) they forget.

"The New York Times" Yes how soon they forget when his dad was VP who knows what they did. All presidents do things that we don't know of tell later. And the next president will do the same.

The New York Times, Dec. 16, 2005, "15 months after the Sep. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the U.S. to search for evidence of terrorist activity without court warrants". The Bush Administrations warrantless wiretap program, doesn't that ring a bell, it was big news at the time, or did you suddenly develope amnesia?

Who are you trying to be, Matt Drudge? If we want to read conservative links we'd go to his site instead of having you go off topic on all these polls with your hatred of everything Obama. We get it. You don't like him.

This is a huge invasion of privacy and needs to be stopped immediately. Having said that, I'm sure those who are just as outraged felt the same way about this program when it was started under President Bush, correct?

What' happening is an over reach. I'm all for the federal government doing their constitutional job to protect us but it's gone in the wrong direction, and way beyond it's intended scope...
