  •  Wiretapping (4.00)
    This is a pretty good release, but I really wish the Dems had the spine to take the wiretapping issue head on (he nakes only brief mention of what is clearly an impeachable offense).  

    It's not about spying, it's about breaking the law, repeatedly and unapologetically.  It's about an out-of-control executive branch that is seizing all powers of government, in clear violation of the Constitution, at the expense of Congress, the judiciary, and the rights of American citizens.

    If they can do this, what else can they do?  What's next?  The Dept. of Justice's paper on the issue doesn't suggest there is any limit to executive authority.  This is Nixon territory, and I don't get why the Dems are so tentative to take this on.
