Earlier this week while discussing the war in Iraq, Senator Joseph Lieberman said, "It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge he'll be commander-in-chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril."
Unfortunately, President Bush has no credibility. His administration misled our nation into war in Iraq on trumped-up charges of weapons of mass destruction. His stay-the-course strategy has led to over 2,100 American deaths. And no one sees an end in sight.
It is disturbing enough that Senator Lieberman remains one of the president's biggest cheerleaders. But his call for opponents of the president's failed policy to keep quiet is outrageous.
The only way we will end this war is by having an honest debate about how and when we can bring our troops home.
Join me in sending Senator Lieberman an open letter asking him to join the majority of Americans in questioning the Bush administration's Iraq policy:
If Americans don't challenge a president who is bankrupting our treasury, damaging our moral leadership in the world, and jeopardizing our national security then we are failing our democracy.
Please co-sign the letter today.
Next week, Jim Dean will join Democracy for America members in Connecticut and deliver our letter with your comments to Senator Lieberman's office.
