He complained about President Bush, saying taking away our liberties and that he would not do it, but yet he is wiretapping more people, he is doing more things that he said he would not do. And I was just wondering, I know you criticize Bush for it, but I just wondered, I'd like to hear how you can defend President Obama for doing more than what President Bush did, by taking our liberties away.” - Boonsboro “Here's food for thought.
