"Walking in my own combat boots, I saw first hand this Administration's failed policy in Iraq."

Powerful stuff.  Watch the whole video of Rep. Pat Murphy (D-PA).  And you can see more video of Democratic voices on the floor of the House on the Iraq issue here.  And then call your Representatives and tell them exactly how you feel about President Bush's failed policies in Iraq — the Capitol switchboard number is (202) 224-3121. 

No more blank checks for President George Bush.  No more.

(If you need even more incentive, read this infuriating article quoting outgoing Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Peter Schoomaker.  Appalling does not begin to describe it.  And make that call.  Today.  Right now.)
