Feingold Speaks Truth to Power, and Stewart
Posted on Mar 23, 2006
The Wisconsin senator whips Jon Stewart’s audience into a frenzy with his insistence on holding Bush accountable for his spying program.
Stewart wants to know how Feingold restrained himself from poking House Majority Leader John Boehner in the eye after Boehner suggested that Feingold cared more about terrorists than he did the American people.
Crooks and Liars:
Jon Stewart had on Russ Feingold tonight and let’s just say that he rocked. He rocked because he spoke truth to power. He made his case simply and to the point.
Feingold: I was taught that the congress makes the laws and the president is supposed to sign them and enforce them. He’s not supposed to make them up.—-How many times are we going to let George Bush and Dick Cheney say you guys don’t support the troops, you’re not patriotic and let them push us around?
Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) says of the Bush administration, “They don’t even care that we have a system of laws.”
