Feingold Left Hanging in the Wind by Fellow Dems
On Monday Senator Russ Feingold introduced a Resolution to Censure President Bush for breaking the law by ordering warrant-less wiretaps on American citizens on American soil. According to this morning's WAPO the Democratic Caucus is leaving Russ out there spinning in the wind.
I am often accused of "my party, right or wrong" sentiment, and mostly I can live with that. But today I'm just livid. Why am I a Democrat? Because Democrats respect the law and value honesty. So how hard is it to stand up to a President who, by his own televised admission, has broken the law
, and lies whenever his lips move?
Apparently too hard for the members of the Democratic Caucus. No wonder people keep asking what do the Democrats stand for? Harry Reid says he wants to wait on this. Were is the moral certainty? Feingold is right, Bush is wrong and that's not going to change with the passage of time. When even Sandra Day O'Conner warns that we are on a slippery slope to dictatorship do we have the time to wait?
Anybody else out there just furious or am I just being a wingnut?
