Sen. Russ Feingold, a potential presidential candidate, told CNN's "American Morning" the surveillance program is illegal and he will fight again the "intimidation campaign" that the Bush Administration has launched to defend it.
Feingold, a member of the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence committees, said a censure would "send a clear signal" that Bush's actions were "wrong."
Here is how the White House responded to this nonsense:
"I think it does raise the question, how do you fight and win the war on terrorism?" McClellan said. "And if Democrats want to argue that we shouldnt be listening to al Qaeda communication, its their right and we welcome the debate. We are a nation at war."
Exactly. Besides perhaps having a few screws loose, Feingold is only doing this for publicity. The man wants to run for president but he will never gain mainstream support, and this wont help. Im just glad the Democrats are back to these kinds of antics, because after last weeks ports fiasco, Republicans need to look good again.
