12 Democratic Senators voted for what has come to be labeled "The Detainee Bill" because they are cowards. They were too afraid of seeming weak to do the right thing. Perhaps they do not realize that what they did was to insure they go down in history as just that, cowards who put fear for their own personal political careers ahead of the Constitution each and every one of them swore to uphold. We have come to expect this kind of treason from republicans for different reasons, but these democrats have openly admitted it was out of fear of seeming soft on terror. These 12 individuals are just that...soft on terror, especially the kind that is openly legislated from the floor of our own United States Senate.

I for one am sick of hearing how they just can't do anything to stop this and their how hands are tied. Your whimpering can not drown out the fact that it is your own cowardice that binds you and that is what you will be remembered for.
