Jim Dean Wants YOU!
...to co-sign his letter to Joe Lieberman:
Tell Sen. Lieberman: Debate Is Patriotic by Jim Dean [PW notes: Yes, Howard's brother] Thu Dec 08, 2005 at 01:22:49 PM PDT Earlier this week while discussing the war in Iraq, Senator Joseph Lieberman said, "It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge he'll be commander-in-chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril." Unfortunately, President Bush has no credibility. His administration misled our nation into the war in Iraq on trumped-up charges of weapons of mass destruction. His "stay the course" strategy has led to over 2,100 American deaths. And no one sees an end in sight. It is disturbing enough that Senator Lieberman remains one of the president's biggest cheerleaders. But his call for opponents of the president's failed policy to keep quiet is outrageous. The only way we will end this war is by having an honest debate about how and when we can bring our troops home. Join me in sending Senator Lieberman an open letter asking him to join the majority of Americans in questioning the Bush administration's Iraq policy: www.democracyforamerica.com/telljoe If Americans don't challenge a president who is bankrupting our treasury, damaging our moral leadership in the world, and jeopardizing our national security then we are failing our democracy. Please co-sign the letter today. www.democracyforamerica.com/telljoe Next week, I'll join Democracy for America members in Connecticut and deliver our letter with your comments to Senator Lieberman's office. Sincerely, Jim Dean ChairHere's the text of the letter:
Dear Senator Lieberman, Recently you said, "It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge he'll be commander-in-chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril." I disagree. The First Amendment enumerates our right "to petition the government for a redress of grievances." If Americans don't challenge a president who is bankrupting our treasury, destroying our moral leadership and jeopardizing our national security then we fail as patriots. Senator Lieberman: As a member of the "world's greatest deliberative body," it's time you stopped trying to stifle debate and instead become part of the solution by joining the majority of Americans in questioning President Bush's foreign policy. Respectfully, Jim Dean Chair, Democracy for AmericaI like this Jim Dean guy. He kinda reminds me of someone.
