Imagine the Outrage if Bush Was President

We have the Obama administration advocating the police having the power to track you by putting GPS devises on your car; by warrentless cellphone tracking; and for killing US citizens by Executive Branch fiat.

There's nothing but silence from the MSM. There would be a drumbeat of outrage if Bush, not Obama, was the President.

Thanks to CNET, SlashDot, Slate and other organizations for publishing this information. I'm not saying that the MSM doesn't cover this, only that there isn't a "public outcry" against Executive Branch infringement of basic individual liberties. Compared to the Patriot Act, which extended existing law (except for money transfers) this greatly expands the police power of the state.
