"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Dear John,

How's it going? You made some big promises last week, how's that coming along? I've been looking on the internet and well... I just can't seem to find any mention of what you said you were going to do to, getting done. Hmm... didn't it go something like this, "When I go back [to Washington] on Monday, I am going to raise the issue." Yeah, that was it, raise the issue. Well, who did you raise it to? Did you raise it to the Senate floor? Congress? That's funny, no mention of it. Did you take it directly to the President? I am pretty sure we would have all heard about that one. So what have you done to "raise" the issue? Well, it appears you haven't done a single thing. So, what happened John, did it not poll well? You see, that's your biggest problem, you just can't take a stand... on anything. Hey... maybe I'm wrong. If not though, you really should think twice about trumpeting bold statements like the one last week; because its not doing anybody any good, especially number one. That is your biggest concern isn't it, your political career, saving some face for a potential run in 2008. If that is the case, give up the dream, because you had your chance and you through it all away in Ohio.

P.S. If you really want to help out, you could post a link to John Conyers' site to help gather more signatures. One would think as gung-ho as you were last week, you would at least have a few links to some Downing Street Minutes info on your home page.

Return to the main page.

Take what you want, leave what you don't.
