This means only Obozo's enemies will be spied on. The longer he's in office the better Nazi Germany sounds.

Where are the usual liberal blowhards on this subject?

Where they always are, when the issues of Barry's deficits, debt, spying and corruption come up.

Nearly all political discourse (and network media right/left) is really just high political theater meant to make us think that these crooks we elect really care. His primary goal was to create an image that he cared and was going to fix this. He has been in charge of it for six years (as he was the IRS), appointed the Directors and personally used the service to eavesdrop on White House reporters phone conversations to see what they were saying about him. He apologized for that so don't deny that it happened. He used the IRS to harass the idiots in the Tea Party because they disagree. They have no political power and will function in the next election to insure that Hillary is the new President. But the NSA/IRS scandal is so much worse than Watergate but the obedient US press just clammed up about that for fear it would catch on and remove him from office. Nothing has changed with Obama's speech and he really doesn't say anything is going to change. Bullies know who to bully.

CAP is an influential liberal policy writing and advocacy organization, complete with its own media outlet. Not only has CAP received more than $7.3 million from George Soros, it also has a membership program for corporations to be part of the discussion. Recently, CAP partnered with NBC Special anchor (and former wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger) Maria Shriver on a report which NBC News promoted without qualification.

CAP was part of coalition of liberal groups in March of 2012 who targeted the pro-free market American Legislative Exchange Council for having corporate donors and promoting policy initiatives not in line with liberal goals. This attack resulted in several of ALEC's corporate members pulling out. A similar attack was launched by some of the same groups against the State Policy .

Crony Capitalism at it finest!

Obama talks a good story like he is really going to "look into this". And then appoints a left wing Geroge Soros Crony to do the looking!

"Obama Picks Soros Crony to Lead NSA Probe

January 17, 2014 - 3:21 PM ________________________________________ When President Obama needs help, he can always turn to one of the Soros inner circle. In a speech on Jan. 17, Obama announced that his new Presidential Counsel John Podesta will lead a "comprehensive review of Big Data and privacy," following the NSA privacy scandal that has dogged his administration.

What he didn't mention was that Podesta is the founder of the liberal Center for American Progress. CAP has gotten $7.3 million from liberal billionaire George Soros since 2000 and was one of the keystone liberal think tanks founded after the Democrats lost the 2004 election. Podesta was to have focused on the health care law and climate change issues, according to a Dec. 9, New York Times article. "
