B/C 04 pin, but he kept agreeing with positive head nods when Turley was speaking so I gathered it must be a Bush Cheated pin. :)

22. What is product of these hearings?
A report? A press release? A house resolution offered by participants? A full page ad in NYT?

How can the important testimony today become durable and widespread, heard by more than those who watch cspan?

Since NSA spying has wide interest in both parties, will we see more reporting and discussion than we did for Conyers' other hearings?

otherwise every progressive blog should post Turley's
words in large and bold type..President Bush committed
a crime.

Send the transcripts around to your political lists.

84. Me too, but that guy just made a very important point about the
lawsuit thing. Georgie can keep this thing tied up for years.

88. But does this necessitate a revolution from the American People?
This is the option that is left to us.
This is the promise in the Declaration of Independence

103. Sometimes you just need to do what is right.
And what is right is not necessarily predictable or safe. ANd who says a revolution need be violent?

90. at the other hearings, they were not allowed subpoena power
Edited on Fri Jan-20-06 11:44 AM by FLDem5
so it was basically a "things are great" fest (example - the hearing on sunsetting some sections of the Patriot Act)

No dissenting opinions were heard.

102. Hersh: As a citizen, I've heard today that the president has broken
the law, he's admitted breaking the law, and he has not upheld the Constitution of the US.

It's time for us to act.

It's time for us to hold the president and his entire administration accountable for their actions. (paraphrased)



YES.

107. Schiff's recommendations...
hope that administration would cease and desist
from illegal eavesdropping.

second, use the opportunity to use the conference
committee report on the Patriot Act that it wasn't authoring
the President to use eavesdropping outside the
FISA court.

Yeah, those are safe suggestions. :eyes:
