Yesterday, Sunday March 12, Senator Russ Feingold D,WI, was on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos. While on the air, Russ talked about how he was going to move for a Resolution of Censure of George W. Bush for the domestic eavesdropping that he ordered the NSA to do. FEINGOLD WANTS BUSH CENSURED, was the title of the post I had put up about this yesterday.

Russ wants anyone who feels that Bush should be censured to sign his resolution for censure.

*REMEMBER* this is just a starting point...but very well could be the lead-off to IMPEACHMENT. And OH what a happy day that will be.

Below you will find the email I received from Russ via the Progressive Patriots Fund which contains a link to the resolution.

I ask you, as a fellow concerned patriot, to visit the site and sign the resolution. Russ is working for us. Not for Bush, not for the government, and not for himself, for us.

This week, I will introduce a resolution in the Senate to censure the President. The reasons for censure are clear: the President authorized a program that illegally wiretaps American citizens, on American soil, without a court order; he also actively mislead the public and Congress on the existence and legality of the program.

Congress can no longer stand by and allow such disregard of the Constitution, the rule of law, and two branches of government to continue. Censure is an appropriate first step in demanding accountability from a President who disregards the rights and freedoms on which our country was founded.

Every American wants to fight terrorism and fight those who wish to do our country harm. We all stand together in that fight. Every American wants the government to be able to wiretap terrorists, and we can under current law! However, this President, or any President for that matter, cannot decide which laws they will obey or cherry-pick which articles of the Constitution they will uphold - and this President continues to do just that. He must be held accountable.

I will continue to push my colleagues to stand up to a President who plays fast and loose with the facts, our freedoms, and our nation's trust. Please sign my resolution to help send the message that we can't afford to let the President be cavalier with our rights.

Here's a little something extra from Buzz Flash to go along with this:

Soledad O'Brien. Idiot. "Feingold brilliantly called her on her ignorance, telling her the RNC intimidated her, because that's the only way someone would think there is a serious debate about the legality of the [Bush's NSA Spying] program." Contact your Senator and ask them to sign on to Feingold's censure resolution. 3/14

Done. I heard a little earlier Boxer may. I don't hold out much hope for Feinstein.

I have the stupid proof post for this:

Are We Clear On The Censure Thing?
The difference between then and now is that none of us was ever going to have President Clinton's penis in our mouths without our knowlege and consent.

got it?

just gut it and use it, tell everybody to call even if it is beyond the vote time-our Senators NEED TO KNOW and we are slower organizing than they are at pushing.

Thanks for signing.
Yeh, I don't hold out much hope for any of them.

They all do need to be told that we want them to get this done.

Thanks for the link.
