Hold The Administration Accountable

Censure Resolutions

Millions of Americans agree that the time has come to demand accountability from the President and his administration.

The two censure resolutions that Senator Feingold proposed will hold the President, Vice President, and the administration responsible for the destructive path down which they've taken our country.

The White House can no longer be allowed to shred the constitution, and thumb their nose at the American people.

Over the recent months and years, we've learned that this President, and his administration, have used mistruths, spin, lofty-rhetoric, hyped-up intelligence reports, and scare tactics to drag this country into a war that can only be described as the worst foreign policy mistake in our nation's history.

In addition, the administration, in an attempt to justify this mistake, has repeatedly distorted the situation on the ground in Iraq.

And the President continues to keep our country bogged down in Iraq – in a civil war that has no military solution and actually hurts America's ability to fight those who attacked us on September 11th, 2001.

What's equally dangerous is the blatant disregard President Bush has had for the rule of law on which our country was founded.

Future generations must understand that at a time in our nation's history when the very foundation of our government was threatened, Congress was not silent.

Regardless of whether you are for or against the impeachment of the President, Vice President, and other administration officials, Senator Feingold's censure resolution is a powerful way to hold this administration accountable.

Congress needs to stand up and condemn this administration for their actions.

Americans are demanding accountability and censure is a step in that direction.

It's time for the President and his administration to return to the law.

Progressive Patriot Talking Points

The focus of Senator Feingold's first censure resolution intends to condemn the President, Vice President, and the administration for getting the United States into the Iraq war under false pretenses.  Possibly including:

  • The assertion that Iraq was linked to al-Qaeda;
  • The claim that Iraq harbored weapons of mass destruction that threatened the U.S.;
  • The knowingly false declaration in the 2003 State of the Union Address that Saddam Hussein tried to purchase yellow-cake uranium from Niger;
  • Insufficient war planning;
  • The failure to protect troops and preserve the military;
  • Fiscal mismanagement of the war.
Progressive Patriot Talking Points

The focus of Senator Feingold’s second censure resolution will likely focus on the Bush Administration’s relentless refusal to abide by the rule of law.  Possibly including:

  • The implementation of the illegal, domestic wiretapping program and for misleading the American people regarding the legality of the warrentless program;
  • The use of military commissions;
  • Redefining torture;
  • The politicization of the U.S. Attorney scandal;
  • The refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas.

Senator Feingold is seeking input from folks in Wisconsin and across the country on what should be in these final resolutions.  You can let him know that you're on board with his demand for accountability, and give him feedback, here: http://www.progressivepatriotsfund.com/input.html.

 

   


Coming into previous season, the Patriots have been looked on since the pride in the NFL, the following dynasty for being remembered for its class, qualified coaching and drafting techniques. Led by potential hall-of-famer Tom Brady, the Pats couldn't be stopped using a superior offensive and defensive which was blended with young talent and veteran capabilities. Now in the conclude of this period because the complete influence of Spygate is acquiring felt, just one need to wonder about how the workforce will probably be remembered.

Spygate, as it has come to get known, commenced early while in the period if the Pats had been caught filming the Jets throughout pregame practice and continued in the course of the video game. Because it is illegal to film the opposing team, the Patriots and the coach Bill Belichick had been fined also to shedding their first spherical draft choose. Later on from the year it came out that other games had been taped and accusations had been produced that Belichick recorded the pregame warm-ups on a regular basis and it's possible even in advance of a person of their super bowl victories against the Rams.

If a baseball player often realized exactly where the pitcher was putting the ball, would they not appearance like a terrific hitter? A similar concern is now asked of Tom Brady. If he realized what perform to operate dependent around the defense which was place available, could it be a ponder he had numerous completions? Belichick may be a winning device considering taking more than in New England, but who wouldn't are actually if you knew the play the opposing group was about to operate? The inquiries need to be asked so as to hold some legitimacy from the sport and prevent further scandals like precisely what is taking place to baseball currently.
