My .02: It sucks that this is happening been happening, more to the point, in one form or another for quite some time. But objectively speaking, I can sort of accept the national security argument.

I look at the difference btwn the abuse of power, and the abuse of people. The clandestine nature of the program tilts toward the former. But until and if ever the latter becomes evident, I can live with. I can dislike it and I do but there are worse things. And in that context, I really prefer that Congress get behind the POTUS and start putting as much effort into jobs, education, equal rights, and the economy as has gone into Scandalmania.

'Nuff sed.
