National Security vs Democrats Funded by Trial Lawyers

The Democrats (and Republicans) took a recess from their toils with out passing a FISA measure that would have passed in the house and already had passed in the Senate. The measure would have provided immunity for telecom companies who provide vital information to our intelligence community when they monitor terrorist activities around the world. Ed Morrissey at Captain's Quarters has the embarrassing answer (via Robert Novak) to why this important legislation has not become law:

Robert Novak pulls together the politics of the Democratic refusal to call the Senate's bipartisan FISA reform bill to the House floor last week. Instead of taking a vote that Blue Dog Democrats has assured her would pass on that bill, Pelosi tried embarrassing the White House by voting for a 21-day extension to the current reform bill -- and that failed, with some Blue Dogs opposing it along with the Republicans, as well as some hard-Left Representatives that oppose FISA reform outright..........

What else has Nancy Pelosi and her band of far left wing nutbags have in store for our national security? President Bush and the White House have called Pelosi on the carpet with this partisan plan that could put our nation’s security in jeopardy. When the reason for the motives behind the Democratic Party's agenda, it's best to just "follow the money".

Bush 41 endorses John McCain-----biased liberal media ask typical dumb questions.

George H.W. Bush stood shoulder to shoulder with John McCain on Monday, offering an endorsement to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Mathematically, statistically, symbolically and politically, McCain is just inches from winning the nomination, and the former president’s endorsement offers a signal that the Republican powerhouse family is coalescing around the candidate. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has already endorsed McCain for president.

“I did not come here to tell any other candidate what to do, a very wise man once said influence is something you always have until you actually try to exert it,” Bush said from the Houston Hobby Airport in Texas, where he was joined by his wife, Barbara.

“Now is the right time for me to help John in his effort to start building the broad base coalition it will take for our conservative values to carry the White House this fall. His character was forged in the crucible of war. His commitment to America is beyond any doubt, but most importantly he has the right values and experience to guide our nation forward at this historic moment,” said the former president...........Link

Directly following McCain's comments he open question up to the reporters. Dumb and divisive, but McCain handled them well.
