Democrats continue their ball-lessness

Ooooh, gee! Check out how the Democrats -- who hold power in both houses of Congress, mind you -- are striking out at George Bush's handling of Iraq now: They want to censure him!!

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.

But Feingold's own party leader in the Senate showed little interest in the idea. An attempt in 2006 by Feingold to censure Bush over the warrantless spying program attracted only three co-sponsors.

Oops. Looks like I was right about "striking out," eh? Amazing then, that Feingold's proposal actually gets headlines at MSNBC. No, not really.

Meanwhile, the Democrats continue their ball-less ways, whining, yammering and crying that Bush "is the worst president ever," he's "destroying the Constitution," etc., when at any time they can pull the plug on the funding for the Iraq War.

The Dems are attempting to live up to their 2006 election mandate while the GOP does everything in their power to obstruct, including Presidential vetoes and preventing cloture votes. Let us therefore not hear that this Congress was "do nothing". The reality is that other than oversight, the Dem Congress in reality has no legislative power. Even cutting off funding would require a 60 vote super-majority in the Senate. Let's see where we are with the Cheney/Bush Iraq War in the Sept-Oct time frame with regard to GOP support of Cheney/Bush.
