He knows not what he does.
. @BarackObama to @Pontifex: Forgive me father for I have spied. #NSA

Get it? The president should ask the Pope for forgiveness for the NSA because, clearly, history began in January of 2009. Literally no one else in the world spied or employed a national security apparatus before President Obama did. It’s not as if minimization was codified under this president and he certainly didn’t propose privatizing the collection of metadata this week.
Rand Paul will never be president.
A libertarian will never be president.
