I Link, therefore I am

Crooks and Liars has a rundown from Move On's Virtual Town Hall Meeting last night:
Crooks and Liars- All day, everyday

Edwards - on Iraq

Every day this war drags on, it's worse for Iraq, worse for our troops— and worse for our country. We don't need more debate; we don't need symbolic resolutions; and we don't need abstract goals—what we need are binding requirements. And we can't wait until the next president takes office in 2009.
...
Congress should use its funding authority to force President Bush to end the war and start immediately bringing American troops home from Iraq.
...
But this is not the time for political calculation, this is the time for political courage. This is not a game of chicken. This is not about making friends or keeping Joe Lieberman happy. This is about life and death—this about war. We are done letting George Bush manipulate the rhetoric of patriotism, only to use our troops as political pawns. If Bush vetoes funding for the troops, he's the only one standing in the way of the resources they need. Nobody else.
Congress must stand firm. They must not write George Bush another blank check without a timeline for withdrawal—period. If Bush vetoes the funding bill, Congress should send another funding bill to him with a binding plan to bring the troops home. And if he vetoes it again, they should do it again.


The American people are overwhelmingly in favor of ending this war. If our side stands firm, if we show courage now, we can finally bring our troops back home and bring this war to an end.

Clinton - on Iraq
(M)y goal is to end the war when I'm President and to bring our troops home, but ...

Nuff Said. It's time to end this farce once and for all. Get our troops out of there.
Fuck what President Bubble boy wants- the American people are through with wasting our lives and money to make the President's friends rich.

Political courage is in short supply these days, save the Edwards, Feingolds and GASP! I say even Hagels!

I am in favor of bringing the troops home immediately. Fuck all the noise jack! A REAL patriot would want our troops out of harm's way...not keep them there.

Hope ur good Fade!
