Congressional Dems feeling Heat

These asswipes all kissed Obamas ass and now they see the results....He is a liar and an unprincipled POS and with luck all the Durbins of the world will get beat in the midterms.


President Barack Obama’s chief defense of his administration’s wide-ranging data-gathering programs Friday: Congress authorized them, with “every member” well aware of the details.

Not so, say many members of Congress — Democrats and Republicans alike.

Typically, members of Congress “don’t receive this kind of briefing,” Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told POLITICO Friday. They wouldn’t have known about the programs unless they were on an intelligence committee, attended special sessions last held in 2011 or specifically asked to be briefed – something they would only know to do if they were clued in by an colleague who was already aware.

Durbin said he learned about the two programs himself only after requesting a briefing under “classified circumstances” after being urged to do so by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).

Congressional leadership and intelligence committees had access to information about the programs, he said — but the “average member” of Congress likely wouldn’t have been aware of the breadth of the telephone and Internet surveillance.

There’s no public record of who has attended any of these sessions — and even the Obama administration couldn’t confirm the president’s claim that “every member of Congress” had been briefed.

The White House declined to comment for this story.

And Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) told POLITICO that the classified intelligence briefing sessions he’s attended haven’t disclosed details on the two data-gathering programs as were unveiled this week.

Schock, in Congress since 2009, said he had “no idea” about the phone data gathering, or any briefings for House members to discuss it, until news reports this week.

Like other members who said they learned of the data-gathering efforts when they were revealed in the Guardian and the Washington Post, Schock said the administration classified briefings he’s attended have revealed very little information.

“I can assure you the phone number tracking of non-criminal, non-terrorist suspects was not discussed,” he said. “Most members have stopped going to their classified briefings because they rarely tell us anything we don’t already know in the news. It really has become a charade.”

He'll end up getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars like that other lying POS Bill Clinton.

If the MSM let Obama survive Benghazi don't expect what has been brought to light since make them turn on him to the point he gets impeached or resigns.
This x 10.

Obama can lawfully and secretly detain American citizens without trial?

Obama can use drones for surveillance on American citizens?

Obama shits on the 4th amendment and is trying to shit on the 2nd amendment?

Obama spearheads the passing a HC bill nobody wanted but passed it via loopholes in Congress and backroom deals, earmarks etc, telling everyone it's not a tax and then argues in Supreme Court that it is a tax so that the damn bill itself isn't ruled unconstitutional?



Honest question......how can you liberals feel good about voting for this guy? Republicans aren't much better, GWB, Romney, or McCain for example. All Globalist puppets, ran, bought and paid for by the corporations that lobby our govt, on both sides of the isle. One's Coke, the other is Pepsi.
How do you think he won his senate seat? In similar fashion. This is to be expected.

Par for the course with a wannabe dictator.

Maher may reached his nadir this past Friday. He expressly stated he was OK with the executive spying on his every move FOR NOW because it's Obama and he trusts him, and just hopes they clean everything up for once and forever so they can shutter it all and bomb the cave door shut at the end of term.
