U.S. Senator Russ Feingold is for NSA wire-tapping.... at the same time he is against it when GWB does it....
Just what the no-ideas, obstructionist Democrats need in the upcoming 2006 and 2008 elections: wishy-washy, have-it-all-ways candidates who borrow from the John Kerry playbook and try to hoodoo voters into thinking they are actually for something or against something, when they are actually both at the same time---depending on who their audience is.
And just what does that say about us, when they assume that all of us out here are so rock stupid as to mindlessly swallow their smoke and mirrors duplicity---hook, line and sinker."

"Feingold for Wiretapping, but Just Not When the President Does It"
John Kerry, the 2004 Presidential nominee and ultimate flip-flopper must have started a trend. In fact, it's not a trend, it's the single-most used strategy of the Democratic Party. And now potential 2008 Presidential candidate Russ Feingold is testing it out....
The lone Democrat that is calling for censure of President Bush for his domestic wiretapping program said he supports wiretapping terrorists.... Feingold said, "If you were on the phone with an al-Qaida person, I support your being wiretapped, all the time, for a long time."
Except when the President doesn't get his permission slip signed from Congress. ''We cannot allow the president of the United States to break the law,'' he said. ''Censure is a quick way to solve the problem. Pass a resolution. It's over."
....since when do we start punishing people for doing things we agree with?"
