Here's a snippet:
It's nice to know he's finally growing a little backbone.
I believe this Administration has consistently acted in unacceptable ways and know that Americans feel the same way. ThePresident broke the law by authorizing a secret domestic wiretapping program and he has reserved the right to ignore laws in the future by issuing controversial statements when signing Congressional legislation. Members of Congress should use our constitutional powers of checks and balances to examine the activities of the Executive and hold the President accountable for his actions.
Many people have criticized Senator Feingold's censure resolution as a partisan tactic. They say that the Senate needs time to further investigate, and that calling forcensure now is an attempt to score some political points. I do not agree. A censure resolution that expresses strong disapproval with the President's actions will send astrong message to the President that he is not above the law. That is why I support the censure resolution.
UPDATE: Note to readers: by saying I'm glad he's finally growing a little backbone, I am not referring to his Vietnam War record. That is neither here nor there: this is a discussion of his political backbone and, for the past 3-4 years, he's lacked one on votes that were of the most importance, such as the resolution authorizing this President to invade Iraq. Perhaps I should not blame Kerry for his political mistakes and instead the political insiders who advised him, but he's the one who chose to hire them and bow down to the Democratic Party.
