Russ Feingold Wants To Reprimand Everybody

From an approving Associated Press:

Feingold Proposes Bush Censure

2007-07-23

WASHINGTON – Liberal Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold said Sunday he wants Congress to censure President Bush for his management of the Iraq war and his “assault” against the Constitution…

Feingold, a prominent war critic, said he soon plans to offer two censure resolutions – measures that would amount to a formal condemnation of the Republican president.

The first would seek to reprimand Bush for, as Feingold described it, getting the nation into war without adequate military preparation and for issuing misleading public statements. The resolution also would cite Vice President Dick Cheney and perhaps other administration officials.

The second measure would seek to censure Bush for what the Democrat called a continuous assault against the rule of law through such efforts as the warrantless surveillance program against suspected terrorists, Feingold said. It would also ask for a reprimand of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and maybe others.

“This is an opportunity for people to say, let’s at least reflect on the record that something terrible has happened here,” said Feingold, D-Wis. “This administration has weakened America in a way that is frightful.” …

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Feingold’s proposals showed the nation’s frustration. But Reid said he would not go along with them and said the Senate needs to focus on finishing spending bills on defense and homeland security.

We have a lot of work to do,” Reid said. “The president already has the mark of the American people – he’s the worst president we ever had. I don’t think we need a censure resolution in the Senate to prove that.” …

Feingold spoke on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Reid appeared on “Face the Nation” on CBS, while McConnell was on “Late Edition” on CNN.

And enjoy the vocal stylings of Harry “Pinky” Reid:

“The president already has the mark of the American people – he’s the worst president we ever had. I don’t think we need a censure resolution in the Senate to prove that.”

“Has the mark of the American people”? What kind of language is that?

Is Mr. Reid now speaking in tongues?

(Traitorous ones of course.)
