The fact that Obama renewed the Patriot Act is yet another example of the vast difference between Senator Oh Blah Blah and President Oh Blah Blah. Wasn't the Patriot Act a fascist plot by George W. Bush to listen in on the conversations of any and all Americans? Weren't we told that 9/11 was nothing but a nefarious pretext for taking away our freedoms? (Think Emperor Palpatine at the end of Star Wars episode three.) If the superb Obama renewed it, either Bush was something other than Hitler, or Obama, like Bush, is another Hitler.
