Biden to Join Dodd in Filibuster
That’s what the man says:
San Francisco: Will you join Sen. Chris Dodd’s hold and proposed filibuster on any FISA bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecoms? Thanks for joining us for this chat today, Sen. Biden, and thanks for the leadership you provide the Democratic Party and America.
Sen. Joe Biden: Yes.
That was easy. See? None of the qualifications, doublespeak, “we don’t know what’s going to come out of committee” obfuscations necessary. Either you support immunity for telecoms who engaged in criminal activity, or you don’t. It’s kind of an either-or thing.
I think it should be noted that what Dodd displayed here was leadership. L-E-A-D-E-R-S-H-I-P. Something we like to see from our leaders, and something that anyone thinking about being one of our leaders should consider.
