Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wisc., weekend perform on Meet the Press was weak partisan and pathetic and he really needs a new Schick. Every time I look around he’s talking about censuring the President as if we don’t know that what this tactic really amounts to is Democrats once again showing disdain for anything that they don’t like.

At the White House, spokesman Trey Bohn said, "We realize that Senator Feingold does not care much for the president's policies."
Bohn said Bush wants to work with Feingold and other Democrats on such matters as supporting U.S. troops, improving energy choices and securing health care and tax cuts for families. "Perhaps after calls for censure and more investigations, Congress may turn to such things," Bohn said.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Feingold's proposals showed the nation's frustration. But Reid said he would not go along with them and said the Senate needs to focus on finishing spending bills on defense and homeland security.
How much is it going to take to show Senator Feingold and Democrats like him that America is not interested in your little private political war with the President? This Congress has the lowest approval rating in history and instead of sucking it up and doing the peoples business Feingold insist on the politics of personal destruction once again!
Gee Russ can’t you give it a break? The America people are look for some positive cooperative governing. You, your Party and your colleague’s tactics have run the course with these negative attacks “all the time” strategy and the American people are tired of it!
Senator Reid is wrong that Senator’s Feingold’s proposal for censuring President Bush shows the nation’s frustration, Democrats do not speak for the American people. 85% of the American people disapprove of the Democrat controlled Congress!
However in a once in a life time occurrence Senator Reid is right about one thing and that is not going along with you Senator Feingold because as he rightly stated the Senate needs to focus on finishing spending bills on defense and homeland security.
Senator Feingold who we need to censure are partisan politicians who forget that other American politicians are not the enemy. Who we need to censure are partisans who attempt to sabotage our government especially at a time of war. That Senator Feingold is bordering on treason.
And that sounds a lot like you! You are the one who is in need of censure Senator Feingold or maybe your constituents back home in Wisconsin will do us the tremendous favor of recalling you or better yet electing someone in your place who knows the difference between partisan politics and governing a nation!
