Kevin Spacey: Actor says Americans don’t appreciate Obama’s greatnessHollywoodactorKevin Spacey— whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness.“President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.”
Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. on Wednesday declassified three documents that showed there have been “a number of technical compliance problems” with the government’s phone-snooping program, as the Obama administration fights to preserve what it says is a critical tool in the war on terror.The documents lay out the administration’s legal backing of the National Security Agency snooping program, and give some broad details of the operation. One of the documents is a secret court order authorizing the NSA program.In addition to the court order, the other documents are heavily redacted 2009 and 2011 reports to members of the congressional intelligence committees about the use of the programs, where the intelligence community acknowledges “a number of technical compliance problems” occurred in 2009.
But no need to be concerned
“However, neither DOJ, NSA nor the FISA court has found any intentional or bad-faith violations,” the 2011 document asserts. The following three lines in the document were blacked out.

What If Obama Can’t Lead?Two New York Timesreporters recently posited for President Obama this grim scenario: Low growth, high unemployment, and growing income inequality become “the new normal" in the nation he leads. “Do you worry," the journalistsasked him,"that that could end up being your legacy simply because of the obstruction … and the gridlock that doesn’t seem to end?"Obama’s reply was telling. “I think if I’m arguing for entirely different policies and Congress ends up pursuing policies that I think don’t make sense and we get a bad result," he said, “it’s hard to argue that’d be my legacy."Actually, it’s hard to argue that itwouldn’tbe his legacy. History judges U.S. presidents based upon what they did and did not accomplish. The obstinacy of their rivals and the severity of their circumstances is little mitigation. Great presidents overcome great hurdles.
The good news is that Obama and his WHOLE WH staff, his wife the kids and their staffs will all be .. ON ROYAL PROCESSIONAL VACATION on the Vineyard.
Barack Obama ,..worse than Carter and on the way to James Buchanan.
