It’s a compare and contrast of candidate Obama in 2008, criticizing Pres. Bush for civil liberties incursions, and now President Obama over the weekend defending the NSA data-mining program that collects American citizens’ phone records and the internet usage/ e-mail from websites like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Hotmail and others. Listen as President Obama adamantly defends what he once condemned President Bush for doing.
