From a BuzzFlash Reader:
Notice what President Bush said in 2004 about wiretaps during a speech discussing the Patriot Act. This was from the White House Press Archive:

Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so. It's important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution."
