Feingold Opposes Impeachment on DailyKos, Gets Ass Handed to Him

Russ Feingold posted on DailyKos:

I believe that the President and Vice President may well have committed impeachable offenses.  But with so many important issues facing this country and so much work to be done, I am concerned about the great deal of time multiple impeachment trials would take away from the Congress working on the problems of the country.

Translation: My getting re-elected is much more important than my loyalty to defend The Constitution.

I certainly do believe in holding this Administration accountable and upholding the Constitution and the rule of law.  That’s why last year I called for the President to be censured for his authorization of the illegal wiretapping program.

Translation: I’m all for theatrics. Just don’t ask me to actually get something done.

From the comments:

When you say …” …But with so many important issues facing this country and so much work to be done …  my answer is:   There is no more important issue facing this country.  None.
