"Democrats Run and Hide"

Those are the words of the admirable Russ Feingold, who recently called for a censure of the president because of the domestic spying program. Feingold isnt happy because his fellow Democrats in the Senate have pretty much distanced themselves from this ridiculous notion. The most amusing part about this is that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist actually called for a vote on the censure bill, but the Democrats blocked it. Now why on earth would they block their own bill?
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.

I really do appreciate your… loyalty. It is admirable.

BUT… there are different ways to interpret events than the way you have looked at them. Seriously, do you really discount so many American’s opinions? The dems did that for a long time now and have gotten hammered for an equally long time. There is room to criticize your party. You will never lend a true helping had to improve things until you criticize your own beliefs.

Did it ever occur to you that Feingold might be the only democrat with a spine? He absolutely knew what the results of his actions would be before he took them. He knew he would get no real support and still stuck himself out there. Politicians in congress that are actually willing to take a stand on something should be commended.

The reason the rest of the dems stopped the bill is the same reason they lost the last two elections; the people don’t trust them because they act like politicians.

That's enough for now...
