When will the Dems learn?

The lapdogs are at it again.

By a vote of 12 to 3 (including 4 Democrats), General (I don't know the text of the 4th amendment) Michael Hayden was "overwhelmingly" approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

In a stirring display of a lack of spine, Feinstein, Rockefeller, Levin, and Mikulski, voted for Hayden I believe in an attempt to not look "obstructionist". With a president at 29%, an attorney general endorsing prosecution of the media, a congress at less than 20%, I have only one question. WHEN is a BETTER time to be viewed as obstructionist. This man (Hayden) is on RECORD misquoting the 4th amendment, and HE is going to be in charge of the largest intelligence agency in the country? MY GOD, is anyone EVER going to wake up and smell the coffee?

Is it obstructionist to stop the current administration from driving the country off a cliff?

At least Feingold, Baye, and Ron Wyden had some balls. I am sure the panicky DLC will have a "chat" with those guys and admonish them to not "make waves". To restate a quotation that is often misstated (and so will be by me), "All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing". That is the message we need to send to the current crop of roll over and play dead Democrats.

It truly shows (to me at least) that these elected representatives care much more about themselves than the country they are supposed to serve. Time for a groundswell folks, we need to keep the names of all of the Democrats that are rolling over and get them OUT of Congress. It may put us in the minority again, but to me it is far better to actually have an opposition party that to control the congress.
