Rev. Al Sharpton said Monday that President Barack Obama is not to blame for the National Security Agency's secret surveillance program—former President George W. Bush is, because laws allowing it were enacted under his administration.

“These are laws put into effect under President Bush. There are plenty of Democrats who are upset about this too. I do not agree with the Patriot Act, but you can’t blame President Obama for it,” Sharpton said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation.”

In 2009, however, Obama extended three provisions of the Patriot Act—allowing roving wiretaps, which would allow monitoring of an individual instead of a specific number; seizure of financial, medical, library and other records of suspected terrorists; and monitoring someone suspected of engaging in terrorism who may not be linked to a specific terrorist group, the Washington Times reported on Sept. 16, 2009. …

Obama’s supporters don’t blame him for anything nefarious. But they sure give him credit for everyone else’s successes!

The hunt for Bin Laden began under Bush. BO changed nothing in that hunt when he became president. Yet he wants credit for finding Bin Laden.

These liberal asses want it both ways.

Did Obama try to overturn the Patriot Act? Maybe I missed it. Obama did not reverse it or even try to reverse it via Congress ... so Obama himself ... personally ... is to blame for it.

Well he didn’t even try to stop it so he is personally responsible ... period. He stated in 2007 that he would stop it. He got in office and found out he was wrong (best case) or liked the spin-off benefit of being able to spy on his enemies (likely). Who knows? Either way buck stops with Richard Milhous Obama.

This is like the involved child of a crime family saying they are not responsible for their escalated criminal actions because these are the ‘circumstances’ they inherited.

Leftist blacks (black racists) see themselves and all others of the tribe as victims of whitey and not responsible for anything they do or don’t do in life. So even the first Black president is a mindless victim of whitey (Booosh)! How embarrassing.

Sharpton, you booger eating moron...

Yes, the Patriot Act was signed into law by GW Bush.

However if Barky didn’t like it, he had control of the house, senate, and the presidency. It could have been repealed BEFORE it expired...

But here’s the kicker... Barky not only extended it, but he expanded it.

SHARPTON, YOU IDIOTIC POS, BARKY SIGNED IT BACK INTO LAW!!!!

So Barky IS responsible for the “New, Improved Patriot Act!”
