Obama on NSA surveillance: Can't have 100% security and 100% privacy

Pres. Obama: This is supposedly "the home of the brave." We do not demand 100% security. This is also "the land of the free." We do demand that our sworn presidents uphold their oaths of office - to support and defend he Constitution - 100%. You have betrayed your oath many times since January, 2009.

The 4th amendment to the Constitution of the US does not give 100% privacy. It permits the government to search and to seize wherever and whenever there is reason to believe a crime has been committed and evidence thereof lies in the OTHERWISE privacy of a person. All the government must do is satisfy a judge that such a belief is reasonable, and all may be examined and taken into evidence.
Barack Obama was a lecturer on the Constitution at the U of Chicago. Must I, a layperson, explain that to him. The 4th amendment is not 100% privacy. Private are his grades in college, that he has sealed.
