More Democratic Cowardice, Courtesy of Dick Durbin.
The mysterious groveling at the feet of Preznit Flight Suit Fantasy continued as the latest spineless Democrat urged caution in the wake of last week's failed censure motion. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin (D - Fairy) thinks it is still "too early" to censure the Preznit. Why? Who the hell knows. Yahoo News AP wire excerpt:
WASHINGTON - A top Senate Democrat said Sunday that President Bush should be held responsible if he violated the law in authorizing the domestic spy program. But Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said it is too early to tell if either censure or impeachment of Bush would be appropriate.
"I can't rule anything out until the investigation is complete. I don't want to prejudge it," said Durbin, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat. "But if this president or any president violates the law, he has to be held accountable."
Hey Dick! How many more crimes does this madman have to commit before you wake the fuck up? The SOB has ADMITTED that he broke the law in this case, and that he intends to KEEP ON BREAKING THE LAW. What more evidence do you need to see before you act?
Durbin's colleague, Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., last week introduced censure legislation, saying Bush violated the law in not fully informing Congress or getting approval from a secretive court to conduct the eavesdropping program.
Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Durbin said he so far has not heard a valid legal justification for the spy program that was put in place after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. But he said considering the stronger sanction of impeachment was not a "valuable discussion at this point."
Well then what WOULD be a valuable discussion Dick? If, as almost everyone seems to agree, the spying program is illegal, then it follows that this is EXACTLY the discussion we should be having.
"It's valuable that Senator Feingold is moving us forward to finally be a catalyst to have the kind of hearings and the kind of deliberations as to what lies behind this warrantless wiretap situation," said Durbin, calling the overall inquiries so far by the Republican-controlled Senate inadequate.
"We have a responsibility to ask the hard questions, to find out what the nature of the program is and whether the president violated the law," Durbin said.
Hey Dick, enough with the phony "tough" talk. Back the words up with action. You and your colleagues may be the only thing that can stop this petty little tyrant of a president from becoming the dictator he wishes to be. Do your goddamned jobs, because it is way past the time for you and your colleagues to prove that you are earning your bloated paychecks.
