FROM DU/JOHN KERRY: "Dear Voter,"
Here's the reality this week: Karl Rove is gone but a broken Iraq policy remains. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a party cling so disastrously to a policy that is as wrong as it is unsuccessful.The pressure for change has been building day by day since I offered legislation last year to set a deadline to redeploy American troops, and still they insist on more of the same. So, we need to push even harder.
This September we'll be attempting again to break the Republican roadblock on Iraq policy to get a new course. All summer, our friends at Americans Against Escalation in Iraq have been organizing in swing districts and states across the country to put even more pressure on Republicans to do what is right and break with the President.
Now, next Tuesday August 28th, they and Moveon.org will be holding events all around the United States to try to set the stage for the fights in September. These "End it in September" town halls and vigils will put even more pressure on Republicans, giving them lots to think about as they end their August recess in their home districts.
It will be a big month ahead, and the chances of us getting a new direction are better than ever. A large event with lots of participation next week can set up our efforts for next month. We're getting closer; I can feel the mounting desperation in my Republican colleagues. But we have to make sure that any talk from them is backed up by real action. We won't stand for anything less than a firm deadline that will force this President to change policy.
Do what you can to turn August 28th into the largest series of events yet in the fight for a new Iraq policy. I'll try to keep you updated when the legislation starts to move in September. It will be a busy month for the effort to get a new course in Iraq, so let's keep the pressure up on Republicans and get some movement on that.
These people have serious plans for September to sabotage General Petraeus' report and damage the war during 9/11. Let's keep this in mind--and remember that MoveOn.org is a communist front organization.
John 'Effen' is still working with the communists!
