An odd coalition in the House has killed an attempt to extend the temporary FISA bill for 21 more days while the conference works out the differences between the House and Senate versions.
The temporary bill expires on Friday.
Congress has approved a very generous bill to extend FISA. Bush said today that lives would be lost if the bill expires and he will veto any bill that doesn't include Telecom Immunity (the Senate bill).
Why in the hell don't the Congressional Democrats grow some balls and calls his bluff?
If FISA is as critical as he claims (It's not ) how could he veto the bill? He holds NO cards in this negotiation.
Bush has Nixon's approval rating. Let him veto the extension and be done with it. It's a terrible bill anyway.
What are Reid and Pelosi so damn afraid of?
