During times of war and during times of peace, we must prepare for tomorrow with the realities of today.

Not One Bloody Red Cent

Posted by Rosemary Welch on January 27, 2007

There is a non-binding resolution that some Republicans believe means not a thing. Au contraire. It does mean that they are sending our young men and women into a war they do not support. It means they resoundingly voted for General Petraeus to be the man in charge of this new move forward, after he informed them that this non-binding resolution would get more of them killed. It would embolden our enemies.

Do they believe they know more than he? Do they really not want our men to die? Do they really support the troops? I say, “Hell no, they don’t.”

That is why I signed the petition that Hugh Hewitt and NZ Bear have created. I urge you to do the same. After you have done so, please call your Senators! Also, call Senators McConnell, Lott and Kyl at 202-225-3121. Let them know they will lose your vote and your dollars, and tell them why.

Don’t forget to call Sen. Ensign. He is the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and you will find him at 202-675-6000. Let him know he will not be receiving one bloody red cent because he is going to continue supporting people who vote for this evil thing.

Here is the name of some of the Senators who we may be able to be persuade through calm, serious and thoughtful discussion. Minnesota’s Norm Coleman, Maine’s Susan Collins and Oregon’s Gordon Smith. They will likely be convinced to rethink possible support against the resolution in the light of the Petraeus testimony and the president’s speech Tuesday. Senator Coleman’s office number is (202) 224-5641. Senator Smith’s office number is (202) 224-3753. Senator Collins’ office number is (202) 224-2523.

We may not be able to change this Senator’s mind, but you can reach Senator Collins’ at: (202) 224-2523. She can also be e-mailed here.

We are at war. We should all be Americans, but the Democrats want this to be Viet Nam. The Republicans do not have a spine. We have witnessed this for the past 6 years. That is why we lost some very capable justices, tax cuts, energy bills, etc. This one, this non-binding resolution, is a hill I am prepared to die on.

I wish President Bush has the steel for them as he has for our troops. That is behind us now. These so-called Senators say you must know when it is important enough to for you to fight. If we do not fight back now, we are letting our troops down. I cannot stand for this. Neither should you. Thank you.

Update: Does anyone the 14 members who basically stopped the Senate from bringing forth any judges worthy of the Supreme Court or Appeals Court? Well, he’s at it again. McCain has just made the announcement that he will work with Democrats (Carl Levin) to give Gen. Petraeus and PM Maliki ‘benchmarks’! How dare he!

The good General is not even over there yet, and they’ve are already trying to tie his hands before he gets there. They claim it is for oversight. Barbara Striesand. They just voted overwhelming for him, and he is favor of President Bush’ plan! God, I thought we had only one Commander-in-Chief.

Update 2: Newest post.

Update 3: A friend of mine is having an open trackback weekend. The name of his site is Church and State. He has many incredible articles over there. (No, not sermons. God, you people are weird! lol.) Have a good night.
