In Congress right now it is nearly the end of a slow lazy July. Iraq is FUBAR,
but what else is new? The Iraq war appears to be all but forgotten and Congress seems to be content to ignore it. So let's wake some people up and remind them that they screwed up and that we don't like it. It is about time for a little anti-war/pro-accountability
If you agree that there has been NO ACCOUNTABILITY in Washington
on Iraq and Bush's ongoing screw-ups, please take a moment to do something about it.
Hold your Representative in Congress, Michael Newbold Castle
, accountable his pro-Iraq war/pro-Bush votes* by calling his office and asking a his staffer a simple question:
Something to the effect...As a constituent I was wondering...Does Mr. Castle feel he owes Delawareans an apology for supporting President Bush ? or Does Mr. Castele regret having served as a Bush's Delaware campaign chair, and helping elect Bush to two terrible terms as President?
It is that simple - call and ask if Castle is ready to apologize.
Here are the numbers. I'm calling now and will report his repsonse.
When you call, please be polite. I'm hoping for 50 calls. (I know that is ambitious, but you need goals in life right?)
Take the poll if you called. Email this link to any Delawarean you know who thinks someone (at long last) should be held accountable for the FIASCO that is the Bush Presidency.
