The NSA was collecting data LONG before Obama came into office. Long before Bush came into office. And there's a large difference between actively spying on someone and collecting enormous chunks of metadata to hold in some archive. Most of that data will never be gone through.
Again, we give corporations and marketing professionals more data willingly than the NSA could ever collect on us.
You're right. Our data is disseminated vastly more than our DNA.
Okay, you're right there. It can be more than simple metadata. However, most of it by sheer bulk is fairly meaningless.

I remember debate season....my liberal roommate kept bashing Romney for "smirking" (which I didn't really notice), but praised Biden for smirking, laughing, etc. in his debate, thinking he was some sort of badass hero for doing it....like what?

I don't understand why any Congressman would vote for any funding of that disaster.
The FBI spied on Congress The CIA spied on Congress. So what did you expect from the NSA? Personally, I believe that those who protect national security need to know what Pelosi's plans are.
Don't forget Boxer, whatever Kennedy's are still around, Feinstein and several other well know communists in Congress.
