Rightly Dismissive

In today's news conference, President Bush was rightly dismissive of a question about the threats to censure or impeach him.

His response was perfect; indeed, the Democrats have not come forward and called for an end to the surveillance program. How can that be if they believe it's unconstitutional or illegal? How is it that Bush should be charged with a censurable or impeachable offense by instituting the program (and believing in good faith in its legality) -- but all the Democrats who were briefed on the program, but who now express grave doubts about its legality all along should be held blameless? What are those Democrats going to say -- that they were "just following orders"?
