Ah, Compromise

June 20th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Democratic leadership wants you to believe the bill that’s about to pass is a compromise.  Which is funny, because here’s what Republicans are saying about it:

Republican leaders described this narrow court review on the immunity question as a mere “formality.”

“The lawsuits will be dismissed,” Representative Roy Blunt of Missouri, the No. 2 Republican in the House, predicted with confidence. [….]

“I think the White House got a better deal than they even they had hoped to get,” said Senator Christopher Bond, the Missouri Republican who led the negotiations.

Incidentally, why is the Associated Press suddenly following the lead of conservative blogs and putting “warrantless wiretapping” in scare quotes? Are we going to start seeing references to gay “marriage”?

    There are some interesting deadlines in this article but I don�t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix should you werent too busy looking for attention.
