Bush in Denial... Here's What We Can Do About It

(Cross-posted at Obama OC)

OK, I just got this from Obama for America. It's nice to see that Barack Obama is keeping his word on making this campaign about us, and what we can do to change course and restore a sense of hope in this nation. Well, now he's asking us to help out in getting Bush's attention on Iraq. So should we help Barack out in telling George W. Bush that we can't stay the course of disaster with this Iraq Occupation any longer?

Dear Andrew,

Al Qaeda has recovered to its pre-September 11th strength, according to an intelligence community estimate revealed today.

Think about that.

Almost six years after 9/11, Osama bin Laden is still alive. His organization is still training terrorists. And he and his associates still have a safe haven in the mountains on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

Meanwhile, George Bush released his administration's report on the "progress" in Iraq. It's another example of how deep in denial he is about what's really happening. The past three months have been some of the deadliest since the war began, and things are getting worse -- not better.

The war in Iraq should never have been authorized, never have been waged, and it must end now.

Al Qaeda’s resurgence proves that the Iraq war has been a deadly distraction from the real threats we face -- which is why I opposed the war from the beginning.

George Bush just finished a press conference where he tried to tell people that progress is being made in Iraq and against al Qaeda. The press will report his spin and obfuscation -- but you can have an impact on their coverage.

Write a letter to the editor of your local paper right now -- if you act quickly, your letter could be printed alongside tomorrow's coverage.

Our online letters-to-editors tool makes it simple:

Over 250,000 of us have invested in this campaign because we're willing to do everything we can to change this country.

Now is the time to act.

Millions of Americans are hungry for a president who will end the war in Iraq and confront the threats we face with honesty and sound judgment.

They're waiting to hear from you.

Thank you,

Barack Obama

Yes, we need to let everyone know that we've had enough, and we can't take any more of this. Let's all write a note. Who knows? It may bring us one letter closer to ending this war.
