Russ Feingold nails it

May his tribe increase:

What I'm interested in is my colleagues acknowledging that we as a Congress have to stand up to a president who acts as if the Bill of Rights and the Constitution were repealed on September 11. We didn't enact martial law on September 11. We still have a constitutional form of government, and if the Congress of the United States does not stand up for that authority at this point, it will be an historic failure of our system of government.

    Senator Feingold is very articulate in the above quote. I certainly am in favor of this acknowledgment by Congress. What concerns me is reading that the bill he wants to introduce is for censure only. This is the equivalent of a slap on the wrist. There seem to be very few in Congress who see what is happening and speak out against it.
