Boehner Statement on Democrat Censure Resolution |
 WASHINGTON, D.C. House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement in regards to news reports about a censure resolution being introduced in the Senate against President Bush:

"This maneuver is political grandstanding of the very worst kind. Senator Feingold has exposed the soft underbelly of the Democrats’ positions on national security issues. Many Democrats took glee in trying to kill the USA PATRIOT Act, and now they’re trying to tear down the President over a Terrorist Surveillance Program that makes Americans safer.

"While Republicans are working to support our troops and win the War on Terror, Democrats are once again showing the American people what the Democrat party is all about: their message of retreat and defeat on national security speaks volumes at a time we need to be supporting the men and women in our Armed Forces."
