Tell the Sentate: Get some Ovaries, Censure Bush!

by Rosa Poder! Thursday, Mar. 30, 2006 at 10:33 AM

Amazingly, over 15 Senate Democrats voted to censure Clinton for a blow job, but now can't muster the indignation to tell Bush he was wrong for boldly defying U.S. law and ILLEGALLY spying on Americans! Right now there are only three sponsors of Russ Feingold's bill to censure Bush and it is set to be introduced on the Senate floor this Friday. Tell the cowering Senators: "GET some OVARIES or we will GET YOU OUT!!"

There is a shakeup in the White House with the resignation of Chief of Staff Andrew Card. Let's keep Washington shaking with your phone calls this week calling for the censure of George Bush.

Here is the next step in giving Bush his "pink slip." On March 13, 2006, Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) introduced a resolution to censure George W. Bush for illegally wiretapping U.S. citizens.

We already have a legal surveillance program with built-in oversight. It's called Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). It was created to protect U.S. citizens from being spied upon. FISA provides extensive flexibility for monitoring suspicious persons. It is the law of the land. Bush violated that law (and lied about it). He must be held accountable.

This is precisely what Senator Feingold is doing. But so far, only Senators Boxer (D-CA) and Harkin (D-IA) have cosponsored his censure resolution. Where are the rest? Even Feingold is baffled by what he calls the "cowering Democrats". We need to help this one Senator who has the strength and courage to do the right thing.

Call your Senators and demand they join with Senator Feingold.


Hold Bush Accountable!
