Dodd vows to filabuster the FISA bill with immunity. Reid ignoring him!

"Further muddling matters, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), a dark-horse presidential candidate, announced his intention to place a "hold" on any FISA update containing immunity. Reid is apparently ignoring his request, but Dodd has vowed to filibuster the bill and says he will work to block immunity any way he can."

1. So now they're reduced to fillibustering the leadership of their own party?
This is some truly sick shit.

HANDY Pasteboard:

I whole-heartedly support filibustering any attempt to grant
retroactive immunity to criminals, including to George W. Bush's
telecommunications co-conspirators in illegal spying on Americans.

Thank you very much for protecting our rights under the Constitution.

6. Thank you for the contact page.
I just fired off a note of support and thanks. It makes me feel really good to send these types of notes considering the many many I have sent that do not make one feel very good at all.

15. That is what happens

11. I pray he does it and states every bit of truth of the reality of the act
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:59 PM by higher class
against our rights of privacy and the acts against the Constitution. I hope he effects the legacy of Reid stating the truth of the harm done to us, the betrayal of our country, and undoubtedly, the profits that will be exchanged among a few. All power and energy to Dodd. May his words flow.

Every day, certain Dems who got us to work so hard for them turn around on us and prove Ralph Nader right. And their acts that aid and abet Cheney and PNAC are coming at us at an accelerated speed. What assumptions we made. What fools we were.

12. What I want to know is,
why hasn't every democratic presidential candidate followed his lead in vowing fillibuster? He can try to talk Dodd out of it, or just ignore him, he can't do that with everyone. Shine the light. Yes, some of them sent a stern letter, good. But how about walking the talk. What better opportunity to show the voters you're serious about holding people accountable?

16. Sounds like it's time to send Dodd more money - hubby did this a while back when Dodd started
speaking out forcefully against this bill.

You go, Chris!!
