Obama And Edwards Speak On Senate Passage Of Iraq Withdrawal Bill

   Reaction from a few of the Democratic Presidential candidates  after  the Senate's passage of the Iraq withdrawal bill.

     Barack Obama: 

“We are one signature away from ending the Iraq War. President Bush must listen to the will of the American people and sign this bill so that our troops can come home.”...

“All of us have been touched by the heroic sacrifices troops have made in service to our country. With the stroke of a pen, President Bush can bring them home to the families who love them and to a country ready to give honor them for their service.”

John Edwards:

"Today, the Senate passed a bill that would fund the war in Iraq while bringing the conflict to a close. Both Houses of Congress have now given voice to the will of the American people that we must end the war in Iraq. The President has said he will veto this legislation, which will defy the American people and deny our troops the funding they need. The President will be the one blocking support for our troops, not Congress. If the President does proceed on this stubborn path, Congress must not back down in a false game of chicken. They should send the same bill back to the President -- and should do this again and again, as many times as it takes for him to understand that the American people are right and the war must be brought to an end."


   So now we wait for Bush to veto this bill and then start all over again. Bush could care less about what the American people think or want. He is basically telling all of us to go fuck ourselves and that we are stupid!

   IMPEACHMENT of Bush and Cheney is the only way to rid ourselves of this mess. INDICTMENT and IMPRISONMENT would be the next steps.
