It’s not every day that I agree with something Bob Barr says, but today’s one of them:
Bob Barr quoted on firedoglake: “A critical component of White House Scandal Defense 101 is rallying the partisan base. This keeps approval ratings in territory where the wheels don’t start falling off. The way to achieve this goal is you go negative and you don’t let up. If you’re always attacking your accusers, the debate becomes one of Democrat vs. Republican, rather than right vs. wrong. Anyone who questions the legality of the decision to wiretap thousands of Americans unlawfully is attacked, as either an enabler of terrorists or a bitter partisan trying to distract a president at war.”
Now that Bush has admitted to an impeachable offense, and showed no remorse, it’s up to the congress to either go home and let the dictator rule, or kick the bum out of office.
