We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

The word is starting to float around that Senator Russ Feingold, D-WI, plans to introduce a resolution to censure President Bush over the illegal wiretapping issues. He made the announcement yesterday on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos, saying simply:
"The president has broken the law, and, in some way, he must be held accountable."
Naturally, Bill Frist wasn't happy, saying it would weaken the country in a time of war.
A censure resolution, which simply would scold the president, has been used just once -- against Andrew Jackson in 1834 over a dispute about banking.
Bill Frist naturally doesn't mention the corruption surrounding the Republican controlled Congress right now. He doesn't seem to think his own indiscretions nor those of people like Senator Conrad Burns or Congressmen Tom Delay or Bob Ney will likely weaken our government. No... this adminstration and the yes men congressmen need to be fought every step of the way.
The administration managed to keep from being investigated for the moment, although some in Congress are interested in checking into articles of impeachment. The problem though is I think it's going to be difficult to make it stick. Under the current scheme of things, Bush is safe. If by some chance, Dems can win control of BOTH houses, then he may be in trouble. If that doesn't happen this year, then it will be fairly smooth sailing for Bush.
