Feingold Calls for Censure of Bush

Russ Feingold has called for censure of George Bush for the NSA warrantless wiretaps:

In an exclusive interview on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold called on the Senate to publicly admonish President Bush for approving domestic wiretaps on American citizens without first seeking a legally required court order.

“This conduct is right in the strike zone of the concept of high crimes and misdemeanors,” said Feingold, D-Wis., a three-term senator and potential presidential contender.

He said President Bush had, “openly and almost thumbing his nose at the American people,” continued the NSA domestic wiretap program.

This naturally received considerable support in the liberal blogosphere. I can’t help but wonder if John Kerry had said this if some of the same bloggers would be attacking him for not calling for all out impeachment.

Bill Frist, who kept his Presidential hopes just barely alive while McCain’s front runner status received a serious blow, has defended Bush.
