Three clues the Obama Administration is lying

What are three clues the White House is lying? 1) The President’s lips are moving, 2) Jay Carney is engaging the press, and 3) the Administration’s minions are typing white papers.

As it regards the unlimited Obama surveillance state from the Administration’s just-released white paper on the issue:

The government [better, “The Administration’”], however, said it believes Congress intended a broad concept of relevance when it passed Section 215 of the Patriot Act in 2001 and later amended it. That law authorizes the government to collect “any tangible things” when there are “reasonable grounds to believe that the tangible things sought are relevant to an authorized investigation” to obtain foreign intelligence information or to protect against international terrorism.

Some lawmakers have said that when they passed the law they did not think that they were authorizing the bulk collection of virtually all Americans’ phone records. How could that, they said, be relevant to an authorized investigation?

Of course, if “the government” was serious about what Congress intended… it could ask the Congress (they’re the ones referenced above – the “some lawmakers” – who said this was not their intent).

As it is, the things now condoned by the Administration were condemned by Candidate Obama. Or as the saying goes, “Where I stand depends on where I sit.” And sitting on the throne of extra-legal totalitarianism is where Mr. Obama rests (when he’s not vacationing).

This Administration makes Kennedy’s look zipped-up, Nixon’s look ethical, Carter’s look competent, and Clinton’s look prudent. Mr. Obama’s goal with the American public seems to be to anesthetize us to lies, distortions, and misrepresentations rather than taking a principled position regarding the very Constitution he and his sycophants so often claims he’s an expert on.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
