From Representative Udall's statement on the FISA bill we have:
The FISA bill we considered today would compromise the constitutionally guaranteed rights that make America a beacon of hope around the world. Today's vote was not easy. I stood up to leaders of my own party and voted against this bill, because I took an oath to defend Americans and our Constitution, and it was the right thing to do. That duty is most important when it is most difficult. We can protect our nation while upholding our values, but unfortunately, this bill falls short.
And this is a very brave thing for Udall to do as he is running for Senate.
Of course, it is Representative Tom Udall that did the right thing even though it may hurt him in his Senate race.
And a note to Mark Udall - the most important thing you do in Washington is how you vote on key issues. The key component of your race is you will vote differently than Bob Schaffer.
Well in this case Milquetoast Mark voted identically to how Bob Schaffer would have voted. If Udall will sell out the constitution and the rule of law to get elected, is there anything (other than winning) the he actually considers sacrosanct?
Is there a single example of a vote in the last 2 years where Milquetoast put doing the right thing ahead of getting elected? If so, I'd sure like to know about it.
Just one example, that's all I'm asking for.
