Congress Should Investigate Now!
Mood:  caffeinated
Now Playing: Move On, Mr Cheney!
Topic: No More Myths!

The corporate media perpetuates the following myths:

"Bush’s popularity has dropped due to the war in Iraq." In fact, his popularity has dropped because he is no longer trusted to tell the truth or execute a policy with any competence.  

"The Democrats have no plan for Iraq." In fact, Democrats recognize that any credible solution involves the use of diplomacy, and were partly responsible for the study group that has recommended diplomacy.

"Congress can not do anything to change the current war policy, except cut funding, which could hurt the troops."  Congress can specify how a war allocation is to be spent.  If you watch the documentary, "Iraq for Sale", you will see how much corruption abounds in the privatizing of this war, while troops have inadequate vehicles, armor, housing, food, laundry and personal hygiene facilities.  Meanwhile, the corporate friends of this Administration are living in the lap of luxury.  A phased re-deployment strategy of our troops can be designed to assure their safe exit.  A majority of Americans want Democrats to take a lead in implementing this strategy, due to the corrupt incompetence of this Administration. 

"We should not investigate the possible wrong doings of this Administration." In fact, we face a crisis in leadership greater than Nixon’s final days. Yet, Nixon’s exit provides a blue print for resolving this current crisis. Vice President Cheney should resign, to avoid impeachment, and be replaced by a bipartisan statesman. Then, President Bush should resign, in order to avoid his impeachment. We could then seek a bipartisan resolution to Iraq.

Congress should take investigative action, now.
