Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011

 The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases.

Never in history has one agency of the U.S. government had the capacity, as well as the legal authority, to collect and store so much electronic information. Leaked NSA documents show the agency sucking up data from approximately 150 collection sites on six continents. The agency estimates that 1.6 percent of all data on the Internet flows through its systems on a given day -- an amount of information about 50 percent larger than what Google processes in the same period. 

NSA Illegally Gorged on U.S. Phone Records for Three Years
Beside, only 125 analysts can touch that database. :)
Of course, not accounting Israel, GB etc. etc. :) 
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: President candidate needs to give something NSA in return for his second mandate ? Let me remind you, Putin too got a lot of president mandates thanks to favors to his former employer KGB.
