Today, Scott McClellan was asked about Sen. Russ Feingold’s resolution to censure President Bush for authorizing warrantless domestic wiretaps in contravention of the law. Here was his response:
[I]t would be interesting to see how many Democrats actually agree with the view of Senator Feingold. Do Democrats support Senator Feingold’s view or do they support this vital program?
The American people have made it very clear they support the president’s efforts to defeat the terrorists and prevent attacks from happening. The president has made it very clear he’s not going to wait to be hit again.
Actually that’s not true. According to the most recent CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, a plurality of American disapprove of Bush’s warrantless domestic wiretapping program and his terrorism policies in general.
