GOD, I would like to see the Democrats DO something besides bluster.

During a press conference this afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) announced that the White House had still not responded to the committee's subpoena for documents relating to the legal basis for the warrantless surveillance program. "Time is up," Leahy said, "we've waited long enough." He went on to say, however, that he remained open to cooperating with the White House for the production of the documents: "I prefer cooperation to contempt." But if the administration has still not responded to the subpoena by September when Congress returns from recess, he said that he would pursue contempt proceedings in the committee "if that's what it takes."

And how many times do these people have to jerk your chain before you realize that YOU'RE BEING MADE A DAMNED FOOL OF?

"You'd PREFER cooperation"? Well, you're NOT GOING TO GET IT. What, Leahy - do they have to call you on the phone and actually tell you to go fuck yourself?

Oh, my bad - they actually DID tell you to go fuck yourself. IN THOSE WORDS.

And you're STILL waiting for cooperation?

It STILL wasn't enough for you to figure it out?

What the hell ARE you - an abused wife or something?


How did I get stuck in a party of such spineless cowards?

I couldn't agree more. While the democrats generally have truth on their side they fail to know how to use it. Its terribly discouraging. I have become more and more of a third party supporter. Of course, if an election were truly close, I would vote democrat, but at this point, with very little democratic leadership, I have dedicated to use my vote for a third party.

As I said, I couldn't agree more with your assessment. Well said.
