1000+ Kos commenters respond to Feingold's statement -- on Daily Kos -- that he doesn't support the impeachment movement.
I fully respect the anger and frustration many Americans feel with this Administration. I share much of it. But on balance, I think Congress’s time is much better spent ending the war in Iraq, conducting the oversight that was absent for the last six years, and advancing progressive legislation.Feingold, updating after the comments pour in:
Many of you also wrote that if I recognize that the President and Vice President may have committed impeachable offenses, than it is our responsibility to impeach. As I pointed out, it is the role of the House to impeach, and it is the role of the Senate to try impeachments. But the Constitution left it up to the judgment of members of Congress whether or not moving forward with impeachment is best for the country.He's surely right about that. That is the reason I opposed the impeachment of President Clinton.
