Listen to Feingold??

I have to admit, I actually do "listen to Feingold" and pray for the day when he's out of office. Heaven help us if the people in this country actually decide to give up and elect him as president.
President Bush and his Republican allies intend to make an election issue of their support for the Military Commissions Act, a measure that is all but certain to be overturned by the Supreme Court. Though there is no question that the act violates basic constitutional protections, the president and White House political czar Karl Rove hope to use the fact that most Democrats opposed the legislation to try to portray the GOP as tough on terror while the opposition is weak.
Why do these leftist loons insist that those pigs have "constitutional rights"? They are NOT American citizens, they do NOT have the same rights as we do...get it?
"The legislation signed by the president today violates basic principles and values of our constitutional system of government. It allows the government to seize individuals on American soil and detain them indefinitely with no opportunity to challenge their detention in court. And the new law would permit an individual to be convicted on the basis of coerced testimony and even allow someone convicted under these rules to be put to death," said Feingold.
No Russ, it allows the government to nab the bad guys who want to cut off your head! Why do you have such a problem with this? sigh...
"The checks and balances of our system of government and the fundamental fairness of the American people and legal system are among our greatest strengths in the fight against terrorism. I am deeply disappointed that Congress enacted this law. We will look back on this day as a stain on our nation's history."
Oddly enough, there's a difference between us and them. We actually are a lot nicer to them, than they are to us, or is this another one of those thing MR. Feingold has failed to notice. At least we're allowing the bad guys a trial. Remind me MR. Feingold, how did that trial of Nick Burg come out? This isn't a 20 something breaking and entering with the intent to steal your DVD player and stereo. This is a murderous pig who won't be happy until you are dead, he is, or both.
