I don't think revealing the breadth of the Fed's spying on its own citizens was treason, even though it was obviously in violation of the signed oath he took to keep these secrets secret. Now revealing the details about the U.S.'s program of spying on China, that is questionable.

As far as Obama, I can't really fault anyone voting for him (unless it was based on his race alone, which is nuts), since Romney was an unlikeable elitist. I voted for Romney myself, but it was painful. I considered voting for Obama, couldn't bring myself to do it, then settled on abstaining altogether. It wasn't until my wife guilted me into it (all that crap about civic duty and the like) that I ended up going and voting for the schmuck. In the end I was almost glad he didn't win. With the bad choices American's are faced with time and time again at election time, I find it hard to blame anyone for their choice, even if it voting for extremist loons like Pat Buchanan, Rand Paul, or Ralph Nader. We are in a desparate situation as a voting populace and have been for quite some time now. Unless things change drastically I won't be voting in any more presidential elections. I'm through being a part of this hopelessly broken system.

Wonder if, and when, change will come.
I'm certainly not holding my breath. Every 4 years we get a cycle of annoyance, at best.
