Minnesota's own Rep. Keith Ellison in replying to Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) letter:
I’m not an immigrant,” Mr. Ellison, who traces his American ancestors back to 1742. “I’m an African-American.”Ellison went on to say:
“I’m looking forward to making friends with Representative Goode, or at least getting to know him. I want to let him know that there’s nothing to fear. The fact that there are many different faiths, many different colors and many different cultures in America is a great strength.”
As if we didn't already know how bad it is...Bu$hCo even lied about the numbers! Attacks in Iraq at record high: Pentagon. Want more...visit Carpetbaggers Report.
Bu$h doesn't care about the Generals. He doesn't care about the Congress or the Constitution or the Laws. And get a clue, he certainly doesn't care about you, your family or friends. That would require something called empathy...and they don't hand that out in a limo or at the ranch.
Oh, READ MY LIPS! I have a co-worker that informed me that now that the Democrats are on board with Bu$h, we're (demos) going to increase the troop numbers...so IT boy: Democratic leaders have united in opposition to Bu$h's idea of escalating the number of troops in Iraq. Republican leaders are generally silent on the unpopular idea.
The madman in the Oval Office has indicated that "he will listen but not necessarily defer" to military leaders on the question of an escalation of troops - and deaths - in Iraq, cuz he's the Decider.
Incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) issued a statement yesterday that he's no longer open: "I don't believe that more troops is the answer for Iraq."
The next Majority Whip, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) told reporters this past weekend that "sending more soldiers to Iraq after the holidays would further drain an already depleted military."
House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement today rejecting the idea of a surge.
And House Majority Leader-elect Steny Hoyer (D-MD) earlier released a similar statement.
HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE!
