Democrats busted again

Russ Fiengold, D-Wisconsin, introduced a censure resolution in the Senate today. The Republicans immediately moved to bring it to a vote and the Democrat leadership declined.
"This is a political stunt, a political stunt that is addressed at attacking the president of the United States of America when we're at war," Mr. Frist said. "The president is leading us with a program that is lawful, that is constitutional, that is vital to the safety and security of the American people."

Democrats quickly rejected voting on the censure resolution, accusing Mr. Frist of trying to ram it through before senators would have time to consider it.

"I don't introduce a censure resolution lightly," Mr. Feingold said later. "I'm shocked that the majority leader would show such disregard for such a serious matter by trying to hold a vote ten minutes after it was introduced."
As if we haven't all been looking at this issue for a month. As if debate on the Senate floor is going to change anyone's vote. As if this isn't a failed political stunt. The program is clearly legal and rational and supported by a significant majority of Americans. His resolution is clearly a political stunt that is going to go down in flames.

The Republicans of today can always count on the Democratic whacko lefties to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. I don't say this with pleasure. Our government would be much better if we had a real choice instead of a bad choice and a very clearly worse one.
