Reaction to Al Gore’s speech

Gore’s speech blasting Bush for illegal spying on citizens spawned huge commentary and reaction in newspapers, blogs, and websites.

However, as noted yesterday and it’s still apparently true, not a single Democrat in Congress has supported what Gore said. Not one.

Polls show the public strongly opposed to such spying, yet Congressional Democrats refuse to act. Many rank and file Democrats are screaming for their ‘leaders’ to act on this (and other issues like the war) but the response from D.C. Dems continues to be nothing, nothing at all.

Are they cowards, complicit, or just comatose? This is a perfect issue for them to attack Bush on. All they need to do is take action.

Update: Kerry has supported Gore.

    I agree with the tone of this post but John Kerry did support the Gore statement in the ‘Situation Room’ on CNN on Tuesday
