    First black President and the Republicans slap him in face continually. A first anything and you would expect sum goodwill.....Why should any black want to vote republican, be republican when their first isn't even acknowledged and treated as unAmerican. Even Bill Clinton got more goodwill, I believe because he's the same color and they have to show sum reverence to that. But to Obama, they can go full throttle hatred and put America at the brink of collapse because he's a black man.

    As long as government has probable cause and have to get permission from judge to look into numbers, it should be fine. But no one wants the government to easily just be spying on your privacy without reasonable suspension. But we all should agree that Terrorists should have no rights and all necessary action should be taken to bring them down. We have to understand that the government, FBI needs to have secrets to keep Americans safe and # 1 in the world....and if not everyone will know our plans and try to overtake us. Now, all Terrorists will know to not communicate on phones or supposedly private sites. The leaker needs to be bought to justice! He bought up a needed converstation but in the wrong way.
