Agrees with Obama on NSA

I find it appalling that 94 members of my party — the GOP — have seen fit to oppose what is perhaps the only sensible policy the Obama administration has ever espoused — the continuation of the National Security Agency’s efforts to keep our nation protected from terrorism. Given that Obama’s usual modus operandi is to support, implement and even dictate policies that weaken the country, I can only wonder what has triggered this deviation from his usual misguided and harmful courses of action.

Yes, some of the NSA’s methods are alarming — and under this administration, one has ample cause for concern as to what is being collected and to what ends it’s being employed — but I’d gladly surrender some of my privacy in exchange for stronger security against fundamentalist wackos who prefer perceived martyrdom to life!

He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither. ... Benjamin Franklin

The fact that you used the words "Obama" and "sensible" in the same sentence show that you truly have no concept of what sensibility is nor Obama's complete lack of it.
