Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., may have been hoping to rally the liberal base and give a boost to his possible presidential bid, but his proposal to censure President Bush over the eavesdropping program is a godsend to the right wing, The New York Times reported. Conservatives have been worried that their base, which has been demoralized on several issues, lacked motivation to turn out in the fall election. But now they are using the threat of censure and a possible impeachment as reason why conservatives need to go to the polls. “Impeachment, coming your way if there are changes in who controls the House eight months from now,” conservative organizer Paul Weyrich is warning. Nothing like manufactured fear to motivate people.
