Several democrats, in an attempt to sound serious, are trying to move censure (and eventually impeachment) of Bush through congress.
They spend three weeks trying to sound serious about national security by bashing the UAE port deal. Now that the deal is nearly dead, the dems have moved back to the wiretapping.
Here's the quick scenario: we have captured bad guys on the battlefield. We have their cell phones and computers. We look through all of the intel and find several phone numbers. We set our "snooping" electronics to wave the red flags when phone calls from those numbers come in. The president wants our intelligence agencies to listen in. The dems don't.
And they think Americans think the way they do...
