Bingo. > That's not in the article is it? Actually, there's a link in the article to a page with the questions that were asked. WARRANTLESS wiretapping--the issue in the court case-- was not even mentioned. MDixon made it clear he was referring to the issue in the court case; but then to prove his assertion that a majority of Americans approve, cited a poll that completely failed to ask about that issue. > I would like to see a survey of Americans with the question: > "Do you believe President Bush is above the law?" I bet that > would get way different results. When Americans are asked whether they approve of WARRANTLESS wiretapping--the issue in the court case--a majority say they do NOT approve. > That's what the issue is here anyway. Of course it is. And obscuring this distinction-- between court-ordered and WARRANTLESS wiretapping-- is standard Republican dishonesty, the kind that got Bush elected in the first place. > He has broken existing laws and should be prosecuted > for it. The whole kit and caboodle of them should be prosecuted for lying to the American people.
