Call It Like It Is: Bush Is Blackmailing the Senate

Dude, Mr. Toobin, stop dancing around the words and call it like it is:

But the president didn't just say... the senators' proposal was unacceptable. ... He went even further. He was really playing chicken with the senators. He was saying, "Look, go ahead and pass your law. You pass that law. If it somehow becomes law, I'm shutting this program down. And that's on your head."

That is called blackmail. Bush is actually threatening to release the terrorists and blame it on the Senators. Blackmail is blackmail is blackmail, no matter the situation. Call it like it is, dude.
