At Least One Democrat “Gets It”; When Will The Rest?

New Mexico governor and presidential hopefull Bill Richardson blogging at The Huffington Post today:

Come January, Americans are going to have to start making a very important choice: do we want to end this war or keep it going? Do we want a President who will end this war or not?

At the DNC Dartmouth debate on Wednesday night, Clinton, Obama, and Edwards all refused to commit to getting our all of our troops out of Iraq by 2013.

…Congress can end this war, they have the power to end this war, but so far they aren’t getting it done. If they won’t do it, our next President has to — not in 2017, or 2013, but in 2009.

So Hillary, Barack, John, et al, when are YOU going to GET IT?

    The moment we invaded I said to one and all in hearing distnce, this is another Vietnam. It took us almost 20 years to extricate ourselves from that debacle. And it took years of continual and visible protests from middle class college age youth whose numbers were being drawn to serve in that bloody conflict to make an impact on our elected officials. Many of those youths were jailed or died (at Kent) in the process. Many moved out of the country rather than serve.

    I see no such heated protest now. People are shopping in malls and our elected officials feel safe.

    Three things need to happen:

    1. Re-instate the draft.
    2. Implement the war tax plan advocated by Congressmen Obey, Murtha and McGovern.
    3. Get a message through to Nancy Pelosi to stop standing in the way of needed, rational actions, and to stop playing backroom politics.
