Feingold introduced censure legislation Monday in the Senate but not a single Democrat has embraced it. Several have said they want to see the results of a Senate Intelligence Committee investigation before supporting any punitive legislation.
Republicans dismissed the proposal Tuesday as being more about Feingold's 2008 presidential aspirations than Bush's actions. On and off the Senate floor, they have dared Democrats to vote for the resolution.
"I'm amazed at Democrats...cowering with the president's numbers so low," Feingold said.
Its always great when the Democrats shoot themselves in the foot after gaining ground on the GOP. Last week, after the ports deal, they tried to come off as stronger on national security than the president, well Russ Feingold has single-handedly squashed that reality. I must give credit to the rest of the Dems in the Senate for not following this stupidity, however they havent done much to shut Feingold up. This helps the GOP at a time when we need it, so from me and the rest of Republicans in America, thanks Russ Feingold.
