White House Accuses People Who Want To Stop Illegal Secret Spying Of Not Being “Open”

After being caught illegally spying on everyone for the last five years, Obama complains that people who want to stop him are not being open.

The White House took the rare step of releasing a statement opposing an amendment to a House bill Tuesday night, taking aim at a measure that would shut down significant parts of the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities.

In the statement, White House spokesman Jay Carney accused Republican lawmakers of trying to “hastily dismantle one of our Intelligence Community’s counterterrorism tools” and said the “blunt approach is not the product of an informed, open or deliberative process.”

The House is preparing to vote on an amendment, written by Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., that would cut off funds to the NSA if it collects data on individuals who are not under investigation — a move that would effectively shut down the sweeping Internet and phone data collection programs that have been revealed in news reports.

    Obama is desperate to populate the DNC database at NSA. Data mining will get them 10-15% extra votes every election, as they can target their advertising much more accurately.

    It has nothing to do with security.

    That show the degree that Carney is still afflicted with Cranialanalinsertitis. He really needs that Cranialanalectomy, soon.

    Heh. Amash is MY congressman. He’s a great guy. I remember his first meet and greet here when he was running for the first time. When it came time for the audience to ask him questions, what do you suppose was the first subject? “How do you feel about global warming?” “The science isn’t settled yet!” I couldn’t believe my ears. I was not alone. He’s had our money and support ever since.
