    Default do you trust the goverment

    with the irs scandal the Benghazi fiasco, the war against the press and now we find out leon penetta was the leaker for the movie 0 dark thirty that made Obama look good just before the election and i'm sure I have missed some I just wondered how many of you Obama supporters still think he is trust worthy. I think he is twice as bad as carter mostly because he has been there twice as long

    Didn't vote for him, but didn't trust any of 'em 4yrs. ago, and dang sure don't trust a single person in the administration now.
    It's a disgrace.

    That would be - those who voted for him or the pot smokers , many more than 4. But they won't defend the indefensible cause most of them don't know enough weasel words.

    The latest from the NY Times
    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is secretly carrying out a domestic surveillance program under which it is collecting business communications records involving Americans under a hotly debated section of the Patriot Act, according to a highly classified court order disclosed on Wednesday night.

    The order, signed by Judge Roger Vinson of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in April, directs aVerizon Communications subsidiary, Verizon Business Network Services, to turn over “on an ongoing daily basis” to the National Security Agency all call logs “between the United States and abroad” or “wholly within the United States, including local telephone calls.”
    The order does not apply to the content of the communications.

    It would appear that the fears for the possible over-reach given by the Patriot Act are coming to fruition.

    I suppose this is just one more thing that Obama is finding out about through the media rather than his own staff?

    This latest revelation about the govt and Verizon should have its own topic. Just coming out now so more will be revealed. The govt isn't building that big database complex in Utah for nothing.

    In answer to the title question: No, I do not. But I do not trust any of our elected government from any party. They are all bought and sold in the market place without even the slightest pretense of serving the country.
