Bush's Democrats

Aren't we happy to have a congress controlled by the Democratic Party? It's great they way they are standing up to George Bush, getting our soldiers out of Iraq, and restoring our civil liberties.

In our dreams!

Here's the Washington Post on the way the Democrats rolled over and gave Bush the authority to wire tap US citizens without a warrant:

"The Democratic-led Congress, more concerned with protecting its political
backside than with safeguarding the privacy of American citizens, left town
early yesterday after caving in to administration demands that it allow warrantless surveillance of the phone calls and e-mails of American citizens, with scant judicial
supervision and no reporting to Congress about how many communications are being intercepted. To call this legislation ill-considered is to give it too much
credit: It was scarcely considered at all. Instead, it was strong-armed through
both chambers by an administration that seized the opportunity to write its warrantless wiretapping program into law—or, more precisely, to write it out from under any real legal restrictions."

The Democrats: pretty useless, I'd say.
