Bush Still Wields the Threat of Terrorism

Like many people, I have been trying to figure out why the Democrats did not tell the loser President to take his security state and shove it where the Constitution don't shine. Perhaps this explains it:
In any case, Democrats said they had been left in an untenable position. They could either allow for a vote on the broader Republican proposals that were certain to pass, the Democrats said, or they could leave for the summer recess having passed no new security measure at a time when administration officials were pointing to potential threats from Al Qaeda, including a report in The Roll Call last week that terrorists were possibly focusing on Congress itself.

Hit 'em where they live, I guess. "You, specifically you Mr. or Mrs. Congresscritter, are a target. Boo!"
