58. Accountable for what?

Any evidence of law-breaking (past or present)? You want to have a debate about surveillance and curtailing some of these data collection operations, fine. You want to have Congress alter or abolish some of them, fine. But what do you expect Dems to do in terms of "holding him accountable"? Appoint a special prosecutor? Hold impeachment hearings? What? AFAIK he's not been accused of nor implicated in any law-breaking. The NSA programs are LEGAL. Loathsome as they may be to some of us.

These problems didn't even start under President Obama, so why is he being dumped on over this? That's what I don't get. This was passed by Congress and signed into law under Bush/Cheney as I recall back in 2006-2007.
