Gravel: We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution!

OR

BYE BYE GRAVEL......


gravel.jpg Campaign for America’s Future:

Gravel rushed through his plan to overturn the constitutional system. “You say ‘take back the power’? The people never had it. The constitution is not a very democratic document…. Our checks and balances are voided whenever one party, Democratic or Republian, controls all three branches ofgovernment…. we can only participate every two years.” You can read about Gravel’s plan to change all that here.

He laid out, too, his plan one Iraq: “We can have all Americans home by Christmas. Doesn’t that sound great?”

In theory. But not the way Gravel wants to do it. He laid out a legislative strategy of passing a war-ending bill, calling up Senate cloture votes ever single day “until you override the opposition.” Once you get cloture, you get a veto - and then, “You have an override vote on Monday, on Tuesday, on Wednesday, on Thursday, on Friday - no weekends off.”

Fine. There’s a great argument to be made for the strategy. But here’s something else he proposed: introducing legislation to make the President and Vice President felons for what they have done in Iraq.

Now, Mike Gravel disdains the Constitution.

Speaking with administration officials and military commanders, producer Michael Kirk traces why the president decided to risk what military planners warned could be the worst way to fight in Iraq -- door-to-door -- and assesses the likelihood of its success.
