Recently the Obama Administration followed the Bush Administration's lead regarding wiretapping without a warrant.
"The decision by the three-judge appeals panel is a setback for the new Obama administration as it adopts some of the same positions on national security and secrecy as the Bush administration."
If you were a Bush supporter then what do you think of this? Does it make you like him more or less? Or, if you are/were an Obama supporter, what do you think about him adopting Bush's policies?

I don't have a problem with wiretapping in and of itself, I have a problem with allowing the govt to do it w/o a warrant. The FISA laws were put in place for a reason.

It makes me think that he is smart enough to hold onto the policies that will help to keep our country safe (or safer than without these policies). I am not surprised though. I think before he took office he was stating that he would be returning much of the executive powers to the legislative branch, until of course he got his first briefing with Bush. Ever since he hasn't smiled quite as much and has held onto those powers that he said he would be returning. Funny how the safety of a nation can be a weight on your shoulders.
In short, I didn't support him but his decision to keep these powers doesn't bother me.

It only reinforces the belief that I have that Obama stole from Previous Presidents what was monumental or what worked for them. He stole from Lincoln, Carter, and Dubya, and Clinton. I have yet to see much of anything that is Obamafied or original. Most of his recent speeches have been almost word for word Carter's or Bush's. He has been accused of Plagiarisms in the past right?
