Watching the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Feingold's censure resolution, I am struck, ONCE AGAIN, by the abysmal lack of integrity of the Republicans in Congress.
They have made their stand, behind the most criminal, deceitful and incompetent President in the history of the United States of America -- and they will not be moved. Not by facts, not by arguments, not by the very Constitution they swore to uphold and defend.
In this execrable display of mindless partisanship, the Republicans in Congress neither uphold nor defend that Constitution. It is patently clear that the Republicans hold partisanship above all else -- above truth, above country, above the Constitution.
They are traitors. They are GUILTY OF TREASON AGAINST THEIR COUNTRY.
Let's see what "treason" is, shall we?
1: Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
2: A betrayal of trust or confidence.
3: a crime that undermines the offender's government [syn: high treason, lese majesty]
4: disloyalty by virtue of subversive behavior [syn: subversiveness, traitorousness]
5: an act of deliberate betrayal [syn: treachery, betrayal, perfidy]
The despicable, defiant and partisan way in which Congressional Republicans persist in defending, rationalising and putatively justifying the ILLEGAL ACTIONS of the President of the United States qualifies them under virtually every definition of the word "TREASON."
In persistently insisting that the President committed no crime, when it is a prima facie FACT that he did, the Republicans are now COMPLICIT in the President's crime, which did, indeed, undermine the government, by virtue of the fact that the CONSTITUTION Is our government.
They have displayed DISLOYALTY to that Constitution, to the government, by their willingness to place partisan defense of a crime above upholding and defending that Constitution. This is SUBVERSIVE, specifically of the Constitution itself.
They have committed and ARE PRESENTLY COMMITTING an act of betrayal against their country by their defiance of the Constitution.
