My Democratic friends would be doing the nation a great service if they spent half as much time getting legislation passed that will benefit the country as they do in attacking Karl Rove. When you're out of ideas and lack vision, you are left with nothing but personal attacks and negativity. We have enough to do in the Senate in minding our own business than to be sticking our noses into someone else's business. Everyone needs to cool the rhetoric, focus on the business of the people, and allow the investigation to run its course.That's awfully nice, Mister Senator. Can I show you something, sir? It's the Constitution of the United States of America. Now, I know it doesn't say it explicitly, so you'll have to read into it a bit. But it was written to create a system of checks and balances. For example, the body in which you serve, the United States Senate, has the power to impeach the President. Also, the Congress (that's the House and Senate combined, now) has the power to declare war. Thus, you, Sen. Coleman, are responsible for a little bit of our national security and for overseeing the actions of the executive branch. Would you mind acting like it, please? We have a senior advisor to the President of the United States leaking the names of undercover agents, and that's just not okay. In fact, it's a violation of federal law. So Norm, could you please run along with your friends, keep your mouth closed, and let the big kids deal with this? Thanks, buddy.
Well, we were a little late, and we've already been had, but I guess we're starting to get it. Maybe we'll have completely wised up by Nov. 7th, 2006.
The proportion of respondents who said they believe the war in Iraq has made the United States less safe from terrorism jumped to 54 percent in the latest poll. That is a dramatic increase from 39 percent in the poll conducted June 29-30, a week before the London attacks.
Of the 489 people asked that specific question, 40 percent believed the Iraq war had made the United States safer -- down from 44 percent in the previous poll.
The other 517 poll respondents were asked whether the Iraq war had made the world safer. Forty percent said it had, and 52 percent said it made the world less safe.
