The Senate actually managed to vote to temporarily give President Bush expanded authority to eavesdrop on suspected foreign terrorists without court warrants. What a concept and why was it so hard to give our side what they need to protect the nation? I'm still trying to understand why the majority of elected officials want this nation to be vulnerable to attack.
Of course, one expects the angry babbling from the usual suspects like Russ "The Fool" Feingold, who expressed concern because this was the idea of the executive branch and didn't come from the confederacy of cowards, the Senate itself. And then, there was comrade Caroline Fredrickson of the ACLU saying, "We're hugely disappointed with the Democrats.'' The ACLU's real disappointment is that America has not acquiesced to their socialist agenda.
Now, it remains to see if Nancy P. and the House will support the Senate bill or put partisan politics over patriotism and leave the nation unprotected. What say you Nancy?
