Gotta love Harry Reid. He's leading the fight to pick apart the dishonesty and lies spewed day in and day out by the goon squad in the White House and their accomplices in Congress. He deserves our support. As this guy goes to the mat once again against the woefully corrupt Bush regime, they get nervous and begin to swing wildly--below the belt.

going to keep pressing forward demanding
accountability for intelligence failures and demanding
a strategy for success that will bring the troops
Call the White House and let them know you are tired
