The NDAA situation is an absolute disaster with inevitably dire consequences on the horizon, but one must understand that the office of President has been re-designed to be spineless for generations now, so it's not squarely Obama's fault. He's just a figurehead, a spokesman for an agenda much larger than him and one that he has no real authority to control, like has been the situation for all Presidents for generations now. This was going to happen no matter who was President.
The Patriot Act was a beta test, and now the NDAA is an advertisement for the release of the final game. It's about to get VERY ugly.
