90. You make important points in your post that most of us who keep posting

about Snowden, NSA newest revelations feel ourselves. I, too thought Alexander and Clappers announcements meant that Obama, behind the scenes made it plain that there was no other option for them. They could keep their retirement and perks and go work in private sector if they want...but he wanted them out. He seems to dislike controversy so much that he will always give a person an out and hope they take it.

I think he was unaware of how vastly corrupt everything has become and how little power he had to deal with it or he didn't feel that using power wouldn't just make things worse for the country and himself.

If anything I blame our Dem Party Insiders and Operatives and the Corporations that Fund them for letting this get out of hand for Decades. Both Repugs and Dems worked together to allow this corruption to get out of hand. They were happy to take the money, let the lobbyists write the bills and vote accordingly. Most of the Senate and House Members who came from poor backgrounds who had to work their way up and know something about real life people (remembering the NEW DEAL & FDR) are gone and a new breed (the DLC /NeoLiberals)have taken over with their Globalization Dreams and Wall Street/Banking worship.

But, I disagree that we should sit around and feel sorry for Obama and encourage his doing nothing about the situatation he has found. We must keep pressuring him to try to try to clean this all up or we are done for as a country going forward. The people have had enough and it's going to be some very bad years for this country with unrest and battles with our ever increasing Military/Police/Surveillance state if he doesn't at least try to roll back to before Bush II.

He owes it to all those who worked hard out in the streets to get him elected and to the future of the youth for which he was such a huge inspiration.
