  •  Called Rahm Emanuel...again. (7+ / 0-)

    Called his Washington office yesterday but just contacted his Chicago office, which is close to my home, this am after reading his statement on the FISA legislation.

    Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel issued the following statement after negotiators reached an agreement on FISA legislation. The House is scheduled to take up this legislation on Friday. Emanuel’s statement is below:

    "The FISA legislation we will consider gives our intelligence community the tools it needs and the public the civil liberty protections it deserves. In addition, it rejects calls for automatic immunity for private sector companies. While this bill isn’t perfect, the perfect should never be the enemy of the good. I applaud the Democrats and Republicans who reached this compromise and produced legislation that deserves support from both sides of the aisle."

    Told the nice elderly lady that Emanuel should be ashamed.  That I would be giving my hard earned dollars and volunteering for any Democrat who would like to challenge him in future elections.  His immigrant bashing was bad enough and while I don't expect to agree with my legislators on every issue, this was a deal breaker.

    that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope. - Barack Obama
