NYT reported Senate Democrats on Monday blocked an immediate vote on a call by one of their own to censure President Bush for his eavesdropping program. They acted after Republicans said they were eager to pass judgment on a proposal that they portrayed as baseless and disruptive to the antiterror effort.
At least they were halfway intelligent. A roll call vote would have been very useful for the 2006 and 2008 elections..... Though polls on surveillance are mixed, Republicans say the public generally backs the idea of eavesdropping on people suspected of being in contact with terror suspects.... Mr. Feingold said he viewed his censure resolution as a reasonable way to hold the president accountable.... "This is certainly more serious than anything President Clinton was accused of doing,"
Well having oral sex with an intern in the Oval Office might be legal, rapeing another woman is not, nor is telling lies while under oath.said Mr. Feingold, who added that the grass-roots response to his proposal was strong after he announced his intention on Sunday.
Certainly the rabid left side of the blogosphere was happy, but they are the ones that are pressing all of the Dems to stay so far on the left that they dont stand a chance of taking over the House, the Senate, or the White House."It is reminiscent of what President Nixon was not only accused of doing,
Not exactly. Nixon participated in the coverup of a breakin to the Democratic Headquarters Office in the Watergate Hotel; that is not the same as listening to international phone calls involving a group of Islamofascists that killed 3,000 people on 9/11but was basically removed from office for doing."
