"This is a limited program designed to prevent attacks on the United States of America, and I repeat limited," Bush said before flying back to Washington...

"If someone from al-Queada is calling you, we'd like to know why."

"The NSA program is one that listens to a few numbers called from the outside of the United States of known al Qaeda or affiliated people," he said.

That's a fine objective and on Bush's watch I would not anticipate any fear of that going astray for political reasons. A President Hillary would be another story.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he supports a Senate investigation into who leaked classified information on the spying program. But he said the issue of whether the president skirted the law when he embarked on the program is more important than who leaked the information.

So, according to Chucky, an obvious crime jeopardizing national security isn't as important as trying to pin something (anything) on the President.

I agree with your worry about a Pres. Hillary. We need to make sure there isn't one.

Chucky has shown his true colors to the state hardest hit by 9-11. It's up to his opponents to take advantage of his own words.

LOL, I agree 100%, Dubya should hold a Press Conference and start out with this...

For all you ankle biters who think you're gonna bring down my Presidency with this non-story, here is where I stand on this issue... If someone from al-Queada is calling you, we'd like to know why.

"I hope the White House won't hide behind saying, 'Oh, executive privilege, we can't discuss this,'." Schumer said on "Fox News Sunday." "That's the wrong attitude."

Yeah, that was only the RIGHT attitude for the Clinton's as well as shredding key documents when they appear again.

Should make a deal with the Democrats in Congress. We will, in the Intelligence Subcommittee, investigate what Bush did if you investigate what Clinton did. Fair's fair?

So the picture the MSM paints of NSA spooks sitting in a unmarked van listening to your call to Aunt Edna is not what is really happening.

I would imagine that these calls are intercepted even before they get to the USA.

She's doing well - chemo's hard on her, but you know what a fighter she is. I have no doubt she'll get through this with flying colors!

Xena, my mom just got through with the whole shebang 3 months ago. She had a pretty rough time (chemo and radiation) but the good news is that 3 months out, her hair is back, her fatigue is gone, and she says she feels almost as good as new (still has a nap in the afternoon.)

The thing that may be of interest to you is that we went through all this stuff 10 years ago with my dad (who is still cancer free), and the advances they have made both in effectiveness and patient comfort are unbelievable.

So be of good cheer, this thing CAN be beat, and your mom WILL do fine.

Thanks for the kind words! Mom's feeling beat-up because ordinarily she's not a sick-type person - she tends not to go to the doctor for anything less than pneumonia - and the chemo is just wearing her out. We're hoping the radiation won't be as hard on her.

But like I said, she's tough - she scares punks (including me) - and I have no doubt she'll be fine come this time next year.
