Feingold Setting Himself for 2008 Presidential Bid



Senator Russ Feingold from Wisconsin, the only Senator to vote against the Patriot Act when it was first introduced, is about to make a bold political move by submitting a resolution censuring President Bush. The wingnuts have tried to make Bush's illegal domestic spying program seem legal, but the American public isn't buying it. Thankfully, Senator Feingold has taken the initiative to make Bush accountable for the illegal spying.

What? Someone is holding Bush accountable? I could hear the right's boo's already! While such a resolution will simply scold Dubya, it has greater implications. The most visible one is Feingold's positioning himself for a 2008 Presidential race. I'm liking this guy more everyday. He's got some balls, something that has not been seen in the Democratic Party very much!

In light of this, it would be great if we could have a presidential straw poll. To do this, I'll need everyone to post a comment with politicians they think should run. I already know Hilary Clinton, Feingold, Clark, Daschle, and Gore are possibilities, but please include anyone else you would like to see take a shot. Once we gather enough names, we'll conduct a straw poll. Good Day!

hell yeah. i'd vote for him. i still remember thinking this guy was a smart dude way back when he voted against the Patroit Act. i read some big long thing he wrote in opposition back then, he seemed to be smart as fuck and way ahead of his time back then. great to see how right he was then and to see that others can see what he saw then, now.
i'd support him.


MESHUGGAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feingold is a very progressive politician. I'm interested in what else his platform would entail. Coming from the Democratic party, he'd have a hell of a case to plead to earn my support, but I'm listening...

Gore = Lifetime politician. He was born into politics, and like Kinky says, "Politics is the only thing in life where the more experience you have, the worse you get at it." He couldn't even carry his own state, and that oughtta tell you something.

Hillary: I desperately hope not. Same old ideas, same old party, nothing new.

My picks:

Newt Gingrich. No-bullshit, down-to-earth and common sense are cornerstones of the character that is Newt. I'm pretty sure his illegitimate kids and extramarital affairs will doom a run at the White House, unfortunately.

Colin Powell. I doubt he'll run, but he's good at everything he does. The poor guy has done enough service to America for several lifetimes anyway. I wish him a peaceful retirement.

Sean Hannity: For pure entertainment only, how funny would it be to watch him get smoked in the primaries? Just to see him in a debate mediated by somebody other than a producer would be worth the nomination.

Yes, I'm starting to appreciate Mr. Feingold more and more. I would prefer him over the other Democrats listed at this point.

On another note, I was able to sign the petition this weekend to get Kinky on the ballot for Governor down here in Texas.

Kinky almost got in trouble this weekend by drinking a beer in a moving vehicle. He was the Grand Marshall in the Dallas St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, when someone ran up the the convertable that he was riding in the back of and they handed him a can of Guinness.

He drank it! That violates the state's open container policy. fortunatly, the Dallas police did nothing, but the media sure beat the heck out of it.

I love this dude more and more all the time.

Kinky for Governor!

BlackLabelAxe said...

A candidate for governor drinking a beer while being followed by the media at a big party = being relevant to voters.

There's probably no evidence in existence of any of the 100 US Senators EVER having drank a beer. Well, maybe Teddy Kennedy, but I didn't mean to make that point...

If Kinky's cool enough to raise a pint 'o the great Irish beer, he's alright by me!

I'll be in the great city of Charleston, South Carolina for St. Patrick's Day. I'll have more than one Guinness, I can promise y'all that.

The only problem with Guinness is that it's so good you keep drinking them without realizing how many you've had. Before you know it, you're fighting cops and pissing on sidewalks.

You should start a poll of all the Dems that are reering up. Just for fun.

Unfortunately...

Feinbold might just have too much testicular fortitude for his own good.

Time and time again, we see that both parties nominate the most "establishment' candidate of the roost. Gore over Bradley, Bush over Mccain, Kerry over Dean.

The special interests and corporations that control both parties don't like reformers and mavericks.

Watch for the Swiftboating of Feingold if he starts looking like a real threat.

lets just the people of america dont vote another republican again

B.L. Sabob: now "completely heterosexual" said...

American Politics is surely dead.

I can't believe the fucking cowardice of the democrats for not coming out to support this censure. Fucking pussies make me physically ill.

The American political system issurely, if no permanently broken when we have Criminals running the right side of the aisle and Cunts rning the left.

Excuse me while I go throw up

I GOT IT

hey bignewsday,i got a poll idea. who should be the next president of the united states, and it should have a couple blabbermouth users in it AND can i be in the poll?

BigNewsDay said...

Maybe we can hold some typ of Primary to nominate someone for the Blabbermouth Party Presidential Candidate. That may get interesting.

If I did that then I can hold mock primaries for ALL parties, then conclude with an election based on those winners.

Let me think about that one for a while.

Clinton, a paid agent of the crown prince of Dubai, once did not bomb bin Laden because the Dubai sheikhs’ private jet was at his compound, and he did not want to risk the furor that would come from them getting killed.

A booster of the controversial UAE port deal, Clinton is a paid senior adviser to a company known as Yucaipa, which recently set up a relationship with a group called the Yucaipa investment group called DIGL. DIGL Inc. is in charge of managing the investments of the crown prince of Dubai throughout the world. Bill Clinton is paid by Yucaipa a percentage of the profits it makes, and Yucaiupa said its profits have exceeded 40 percent in recent years.

No one is asking if Clinton is committing federal felonies in doing so because he is failing to register as a foreign agent under the 1933 Foreign Agent Registration Act.

If you advise a foreign government, get paid and lobby for legislation to the U.S. government--even though that government includes his wife–Clinton must register, and failure to do so is a crime.

When is the Grand Jury going to be convened?

Cool, the old Republican art of Blame-shifting. "When one of us get attacked, we are going to change the subject and find some completely irrelevent wrong-doing on your side."

al bundy said...

will we have to nominate one person?

BigNewsDay said...

Yes Mr. Bundy. We would first need to generate a list nominees by advertising the poll on blabbermouth, then take the top five or six nominees and put them into a poll.

al bundy said...

and ill like to add.
anybody runs for president. lets NOT make promises. it should be based on who the people like.

BigNewsDay said...

I don't know about that Mr. Bundy. That would end up being another popularity contest, which I've already done a couple of. I think you need to come up with at least one idea that would improve our country.
