If we weren't suspicious of President Obama before the revelation that the IRS was helping with his re-election campaign, we certainly were afterward. And the information leaked by Edward Snowden about the NSA telephone meta-data sweeps heightened those suspicions.
The President's hand picked panel issued a report the other day which attempted to placate those fears. But even they warned of possible abuse. See President Obama's Own Experts Recommend End to NSA Phone Data Spying:
But its report warned, "We cannot discount the risk, in light of the lessons of our own history, that at some point in the future, high-level government officials will decide that this massive database of extraordinarily sensitive private information is there for the plucking."
Duh, as the kids say. And if there are any "high-level government officials" for whom consequences outweigh any moral inhibitions they are Obama and the crowd surrounding him.
