Would you buy a used Hummer from this man?

And you can take that any way you like.

"A good buddy is someone who goes out and
gets two blowjobs and
comes back and gives you one."

Here's what Holden has to say:
Wow. Just wow. Knowing what we already know today about Chimpy's extra-consitutional snooping, that it was widespread (18,000 wiretapping subjects!), involved all varieties of phone calls (foreign to domestic, domestic to foreign, and perhaps domestic to domestic), and was only discussed with a few members of Congress (and at least one of them objected in writing) it's stunning to see the Chimp in Chief lie like this.

With that, I'll be glad to answer a couple of questions. Toby. Or, Deb. You are Deb, right?

Q Yes, sir. Mr. President, were you aware of any resistance to the launching of the NSA program at high levels of your administration, and if so, how did that influence your decision to approve it?

THE PRESIDENT: First of all, the NSA program is an important program in protecting America. We're at war, and as Commander-in-Chief, I've got to use the resources at my disposal, within the law, to protect the American people. And that's what we're doing.

The NSA program is one that listens to a few numbers, called from the outside of the United States and of known al Qaeda or affiliate people. In other words, the enemy is calling somebody and we want to know who they're calling and why. And that seems to make sense to me, as the Commander-in-Chief, if my job is to protect the American people.
