Co-Sponsor Senator Feingold's Censure Resolutions

Millions of Americans agree that the time has come to demand accountability from the President and his administration. The two censure resolutions that Senator Feingold proposed will hold the President, Vice President, and the Attorney General responsible for the destructive path down which they've taken our country.

The White House can no longer be allowed to shred the Constitution, and thumb their nose at the American people. Over the recent months and years, we've learned that this President, and his administration, have used mistruths, spin, lofty-rhetoric, hyped-up intelligence reports, and scare tactics to drag this country into a war that can only be described as the worst foreign policy mistake in our nation's history.

In addition, the administration, in an attempt to justify this mistake, has repeatedly distorted the situation on the ground in Iraq. And the President continues to keep our country bogged down in Iraq - in a civil war that has no military solution and actually hurts America's ability to fight those who attacked us on September 11th, 2001.

What's equally dangerous is the blatant disregard President Bush has had for the rule of law on which our country was founded. Future generations must understand that at a time in our nation's history when the very foundation of our government was threatened, Congress was not silent.

Regardless of whether you are for or against the impeachment of the President, Vice President, and other administration officials, Senator Feingold's censure resolutions are a powerful way to hold this administration accountable for their actions.

Full Petition Text:

First Resolution: The President and the Vice President must be held accountable for leading the United States into war in Iraq under false pretenses.

From the false assertion that Iraq was linked to al-Qaeda, to that claim that Iraq harbored weapons of mass destruction that threatened the U.S., to insufficient war planning, to manipulating intelligence data to suit their ideology, to fiscal mismanagement of the war; this administration has failed our country at every turn and must be held to account.

Second Resolution: The President and the Attorney General must be condemned for their blatant disregard for the rule of law and the Constitution.

From the implementation of the illegal, domestic wiretapping program, to the use of military commissions, to redefining torture, to the politicization and mishandling of the U.S. Attorney scandal, to the refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas; the Bush White House, time and time again, has thumbed its nose at the law.

If Congress does not censure the President, the Vice President and the Attorney General, we will be tacitly condoning their actions, and undermining the very foundation on which our country was founded.

I therefore sign on as a citizen co-sponsor of Senator Feingold's resolutions to censure the President, Vice President, and the Attorney General.
