Subject: Sold Out by Our Own
This is for me, the darkest day politically since
the "election" of 2000.
Members of our own Democratic Party voted to
give Bush his telecoms immunity.
Rethugs have been celebrating all morning, why
they even claim they got more than they wanted!
Meanwhile. the double-dealing Democrats try to
spin this as some sort of bi-partisanship".
Don't believe it, it is not,, but it is a case
of folding, capitulation, caving-in, all those things Dems
do so well - and so often. (Glenn Greenwald
at www.salon.com is always up to date on the latest).
I spent alot of time online fighting this issue.
There was one brief period when Dems did stand
strong and we thought this could be one issue
- one thing - where we win, and where Bush
doesn't get his way.
I now believe Dems always planned on capitulating
I agree - why negotiate for a year and then cave
Why not cave in at the start and save the time?
I don't know what their reasons are but they have
certainly proven contempt for
their constituents, for the 4th amendment, and
the rule of law. They have stood up and lied.
Gee, who does that remind me of?
Plenty of bloggers were begging Obama to step
up and say/do something but he has (of this writing)
stayed silent, (except for a previous statement
saying he was against giving retroactive immunity).
There is no white knight. There is only the people
I really don't know where to go from here. I feel
like I don't have a party.
The actions of this Democratic party certainly
don't represent my best interests.
They represent the interests of George W Bush.
That is abominable!
What an eye-opener.....I am sickened.
