WASHINGTON (CNN)–Republican Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell,
(R-Kentucky) was "stunned" at Sen. Russ Feingold's (D-Wisconsin) plan to censure the president and his administration.
On CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, McConnell said: "You know, today marks the 200th day of the new Congress. And I'm kind of stunned that Senator Feingold just recommended on the heels of the all-night theater of Tuesday night gives you a sense, Wolf, of why this Congress now has a 14 percent approval rating. We think it's the lowest in the history of polling."
One supporter of Feingold's measure is Senate Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Illinois). Sen. Durbin told Wolf Blitzer, "This administration has gone far beyond the exercise of political power. They have abused the Constitution in some respects, and I think it's appropriate for us to take this censure resolution up. It is short of impeachment, but it's an important debate."
