Feingold On Censure Full Discussion

Feingold to Introduce Censure Resolution against Bush

Senator Russ Feingold plans to introduce a censure motion against Bush for misleading the US public into war, he told Meet the Press on Sunday.

Feingold makes the good points that the president has been involved in things that look like criminality; that the votes aren’t there to impeach him; but that at the very least his enormities should not be allowed to pass without some statement from the legislature. Feingold suggests that such a censure vote might even attract support from some Republicans. Since the Republicans have stopped so much as mentioning Bush when they want to convince the public of something, Feingold is likely right about this point. It could be a way for some of them to distance themselves from Bush before the next election.
