Senator Feingold, You Kick Ass

Currently, I am thinking about raising Feingold's personal esteem up to that of Conyers. Way to go Feingold. You and the ball are still completely in bounds. You can be sure that the republicrats who are trying to tell you to back down are going to have their butts handed to them the next time they are up for re-election.

It's time to confront the Bush administration for its various illegalities and immoralities. Seize the Day! Thank you Sen. Feingold (WI).

Here are some of your comments (
Mr. President, when the President of the United States breaks the law, he must be held accountable. That is why today I am introducing a resolution to censure President George W. Bush.

The President authorized an illegal program to spy on American citizens on American soil, and then misled Congress and the public about the existence and legality of that program. It is up to this body to reaffirm the rule of law by condemning the President’s actions.

All of us in this body took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and bear true allegiance to the same. Fulfilling that oath requires us to speak clearly and forcefully when the President violates the law. This resolution allows us to send a clear message that the President’s conduct was wrong.

And we must do that. The President’s actions demand a formal judgment from Congress.
The Constitution looks to the Congress to right the balance of power. The American people look to us to take action, to speak out, with one clear voice, against wrongdoing by the President of the United States. In our system of government, no one, not even the President, is above the law.

Amen! Now that's Strength!
