As the nation that developed the Internet, the world expects us to ensure that the digital revolution works as a tool for individual empowerment rather than government control. Having faced down the totalitarian dangers of fascism and communism, the world expects us to stand up for the principle that every person has the right to think and write and form relationships freely – because individual freedom is the wellspring of human progress.

Those values make us who we are. And because of the strength of our own democracy, we should not shy away from high expectations. For more than two centuries, our Constitution has weathered every type of change because we have been willing to defend it, and because we have been willing to question the actions that have been taken in its defense. Today is no different. Together, let us chart a way forward that secures the life of our nation, while preserving the liberties that make our nation worth fighting for. Thank you.

-----

When has he ever defended the Constitution? He ignores it ritually.

As usual, lies are his core.. the agenda is paramount.

The Founding Fathers never anticipated enemies so treacherous that their every breath is a lie and an assault of our inalienable rights.

“Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.”

If I want to know anything about Obama, I wouldn’t take a staged speech as a way to learn very much.

What obama really said in his 45 minute speech; We spied on most of the world, its leaders and all of the people of the United States, we got caught, so let me be perfectly clear, I’m going to hire two more democrats, one at NSA and one at the WH to provide me more cover and appoint Podesta to do an in depth study to cover my ass.

It really doesn't matter what the actual content of the speech is. I'd be willing to bet serious money that a full semantic analysis of the speech would indicate an actual content of zero.

The purpose of the speech is to allow the press and democrats (but I repeat myself) to deflect any new or old revelation about government spying. They'll just poiint to this speech, and say "he fixed it all, it's old news". Of course, that will be a lie, but that won't matter.
