Senator Reid's Emergency Petition: Support Our Troops And Bring Them Home, Mr. Bush
Senator "Give-'em-hell Harry" Reid asks everyone to sign his emergency petition to George Bush:
Dear President Bush,
Our troops are in the middle of an endless Iraqi civil war. That’s why a majority of Americans, a bipartisan majority in Congress and the Iraq Study Group believe that this war cannot be won militarily and the current path is not sustainable.
Both the House and Senate have passed a Supplemental Appropriations Bill that fully funds our troops and provides a plan to responsibly end the war. A veto will deny our troops the resources they need, and send exactly the wrong message to Iraq’s political leaders. After more than four years of a failed policy, it’s time for us to change course.
Spurious George's mantra would appear to be nah-nah-nah-I'm-not-listening, which fact does not portend well for this appropriations bill. Sure, only 28% of Americans approve of his modus operandi, but he's not listening, get it? That said, it is important to keep pushing for reform and then recording these contrarian little pissfests of his even when it seems hopeless, because the sum total of his subversions, evasions, and underminings shows the enormity of his utter contempt for the will of the American people. And because, when you think about it, enough such demonstrated contempt--coupled with the growing Vesuvius of concrete proof that Bush's cassus belli consisted of nothing more than a wobbly stack of lies and manufactured evidence--means it's conceivable that viable impeachment charges may yet be brought against this Administration. Barring that, the more times we have him on record as having turned his back on the troops, as well as the American people who want them home now, the more obvious and actionable Bush's incompetence, malfeasance, and illegitimacy become, even to some of the dyed-in-the-wool die-hards. Go sign the petition now!
