Bush censure sought over spying
QUOTE
A prominent Democrat has asked the US Senate to censure President George W Bush over a wiretapping scheme approved by him soon after the 9/11 attacks.

The unusual request was tabled by Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin.

Mr Feingold alleges Mr Bush violated the constitution when he ordered wiretapping without warrants but the White House denies the law was broken.

Sen Feingold was interrupted many times by the Senate before he could even deliver his censure. It really pissed me off that Arlen Specter was participating in that, as well.

How silly of you, Aaron. It was Arca.

I think Dock needs to come out of hibernation and beat Arca back into submission.

A bunch of fascist Republicans try to shout down criticism before it's even spoken? I think Arca has it exactly right.

Sorry folks, no fireworks show tonight.

He said censure was a milder form to avoid outright impeachment. I say go for the impeachment. If the leader of the country doesn't follow the rules, why should anyone else. Hold him up as an example and punish him properly for his wrongdoings.

Carter and Clinton did the same, so good luck with the censure.
