WASHINGTON (AP) -- A liberal Democrat and potential White House contender is proposing censuring President Bush for authorizing domestic eavesdropping, saying the White House misled Americans about its legality.
"The president has broken the law and, in some way, he must be held accountable," Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., told The Associated Press in an interview.
A censure resolution, which simply would scold the president, has been used just once in U.S. history - against Andrew Jackson in 1834.
No impeachment? Ok - let's get these sons of bitches on record. Either the Republicans are willing to uphold the Constitution, or they should be forced go on record saying that they won't. Publicly.
Ohhhh...what's that I hear? The sound of pathetic whining in the distance? What could it be?
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., called the proposal "a crazy political move" that would weaken the U.S. during wartime.
Ah. Yeah, okay. You pathetic bastard.
