Skip to comments.Sharpton: You Canít Blame Obama for Secret Surveillance
Posted on 06/11/2013 3:50:25 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Rev. Al Sharpton said Monday that President Barack Obama is not to blame for the National Security Agency's secret surveillance programformer 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 cant blame President Obama for it, Sharpton said on MSNBCs PoliticsNation.
In 2009, however, Obama extended three provisions of the Patriot Actallowing 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!
Exactly... for liberals Obama is the president who is everything and nothing all at the same time.
YES WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!
Naturally. All the other America-hating communists rush to his aid.
They’ve GOT to keep an eye on those white devil teabaggers, for sure.
Sharpton: The poster boy for the 95% of the demographic group that voted for Obama.
Well yes Rev Race Pimp we can blame Obama..
Blame we much!
Hey, al! I can if I want to. And I want to. So there.
They don’t get any dumber than “Rev” Al. He can barely talk.
Rev Race Pimp: Tawana Brawley
What can you “Blame”him for?Not flushing the toilet(or not putting the seat down”????????????????
Sharpton: You Cant Blame Obama for Secret Surveillance, it’ all you white devils setting up the black man.
All the Statists out there who want to hang Snowden.....you have a friend in Black Ku Klux Klan Racist Al Sharpton.....ain’t that sweet.
Al gotta another honky he want to lynch
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.
BENGHAZI, IRS, BLACK PANTHERS, VOTING FRAUD, FAST AND FURIOUS, ELIGIBILITY, he did all that shit, but no way did he have anything to do with the SECRET SURVEILLANCE.
Is Bush still president? Sharpon speaks as if he is!
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.
Yes We Can.
More bullsh*t from The Rev, who actually believes that king hussein walks on water.
Thanks Olog-hai. What’s his FR nick?
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.
Ima sick of this crap from this carp mouth
Even IF “Bush did it” obama has had 5 years to stop it
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!”
Hey AL,how about the IRS? Obama also extended the National State of Emergency in the “Continuation of Government” policy implemented by Bush,which allows him to declare Martial law,use the American Military against American civilians,done 3days after 9/11/2001 .
obama’s eligibility issue began under President George W. Bush./s
