Politicians of the so-called Democrat Party have had nearly nothing to say about ongoing Congressional efforts to dismantle the Billof Rights and the Geneva Conventions.

Reportedly this is Vichycrat strategy:

"Democrats are not planning any organized effort to filibuster the deal in the Senate, even though they may not agree with some of the specifics in the legislation.

With just a few days left before the election recess, Democratic aides say they are not going to give Republicans an opportunity to paint them into a corner. 'We’re going to do what we can to limit the amount of daylight between us and them on national security issues in order to neutralize this as a political issue,' a senior Democratic aide said."

So, lets see: the Democrats don't dare stand on principle, because that might risk losing the election -- after which if they somehow don't lose they'll have to come up with a new reason for not standing on principle.

Also, you don't want to be at odds on national seciurity issues with the party that botched 9/11, botched Afghanistan, and mislead the country into the greatest military debacle in its history.
Hmmm. Okay then.
