Is Anyone Really Surprised?

To the Editor:

President Obama and members of his administration have repeatedly and frequently sought to undermine the Constitution, circumvent the rule of law and neglect or abuse the power and responsibilities entrusted to them by the American people. When such actions are revealed and they are confronted about these behaviors, they tend to respond with answers like "I don't know," "I don't remember" or "What difference does it make?"

Is anyone really surprised that agencies under Mr. Obama's control would target and harass people who oppose or threaten his attempts to place a stranglehold on our liberties while advancing his progressive/socialist agenda? Does anyone really think that agencies of the federal government would dare to carry out this assault on freedom if they did not believe that they had his approval?

It's time to wake up and smell the coffee people, this is America.
