Oh! Wait! I remember! Obama supposedly had *no idea* what the NSA was doing and is therefore totally innocent of making us a rogue nation bent on trying to control everything with spy technology, drone murders, and Machiavellian cynicism. He is relieved of the guilt of being a corrupt authoritarian by being–so we are told–an incompetent ninny whose subordinates don’t inform him lest he know too much and lose plausible deniability.
I pledge allegiance to the God King of the Surveillance State of Amerika, and to Obama for which it stands, one people loyal to the State, against God and the Church, with slavery and injustice for all.
