Holy Sh!t Poll Numbers

Concurrent with the recent vote by the House to approve a bill giving Bush his revised FISA law, that basically lets him spy on anyone to track terrorists, FOX News (yeah, how reliable are they?) today released the results of a new poll (.pdf) conducted June 17-18. Check this out:

Look closer, now. It says that Republicans approve of the Democratically controlled Congress more than Democrats do.

This is sickening, and points to another reason why Obama is so needed as President. Still, we haven't heard from him on the FISA issue yet.

Greewald is pretty steamed about this issue. And why not? Basically Bush got caught breaking the law three years ago, and has been arguing ever since that he should be able to break any law or all laws, so long as it's done in defense of the nation.

Uh, yeah right!

The presidential oath of office centers on a pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not "the nation." The implication is that by standing up for the Constitution, the President in fact defends the nation. Bush is not only failing to defend the Constitution -- our Constitution -- he is committing felonious acts in the process. And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lets lie the 35 Articles of Impeachment introduced by Dennis Kucinich weeks ago. No wonder the Republicans like Congress more than the Democrats do!
