Well looks like Russ Feingold, Democratic Senator from Wisconsin is reading up on his Analog Giant. Just last weak I was calling out the limp wristed Dems. Low and behold we have the ONLY person who read the entire Patriot Act asking the US Senate to censure President George W Bush over a wiretapping scheme approved by Bush soon after the 9/11 attacks.
Feingold alleges Mr Bush violated the constitution when he ordered wiretapping without warrants but the White House denies the law was broken.
"The president violated the law, ignored the Constitution and the other two branches of government and disregarded the rights and freedoms upon which our country was founded," Feingold stated.It should come as no surprise that the gun shy Dems that lack the conviction and determination to challenge this administration have beat quick retreat on the call to censure Bush. Senate Democrats on yesterday blocked an immediate vote on Feingold's call to censure President Bush for his eavesdropping.
Their sense of complacency is sickening.
Press release on the good Senator's website.
