Bill Maher took a stab at NSA spying during his July 11 episode of HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher." He pointed fingers at liberals who refuse to criticize surveillance under President Obama's administration. During the segment he said, "If this was happening under Bush, liberals would be apoplectic. I’m sorry, but liberals are just sometimes useless Obama hacks without a shred of intellectual honesty.”

Congresswoman Donna Edwards agreed, and said that she thought the NSA "greatly overreached," noting that Congress hasn't set any boundaries. "I don't agree with the administration's policy on the NSA," she said. Author Ron Suskind added that during Bush's administration, no one proved the NSA's spying took place. "The one thing's Snowden has done is prove the goods to make the case that this is real," he said. What the whole clip above, via Mediaite.
