MFSO Pac NW responds to Senator Murray
Reference the report 9-22-05: walking the halls of Congress in shorts. on our MFSO (Pac NW participants) Bus Tour page.
In regard to your terse and "non-negotiable" response to Military Families Speak Out and Gold Star Families for Peace members who visited you this week to urge you to take a stand on bringing our troops home now, I would like say that what is negotiable is your job.
That you have become this out of touch with your constituants andthe majority of the American people and are parroting the most unworthy and incapable Commander in Chief in this country's history with rhetorical blather about "staying the course" is pathetic.
I know that I do not stand alone when I say that you have lost my respect and my vote.
I second Ms Dyson's remarks with emphasis added.
I am extremely disappointed that you have not shown greater leadership and voice the majority opinion from the state you are supposed to represent.
In previous elections, I volunteered long hard hours to help both you and Senator Cantwell succeed in you election bids.
Senator Murray unless you support our troops by demonstrating leadership to end the senseless combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, you will NOT have my future support.
Obviously Democrats in the State of Washington who overwhelming oppose the Bush Administration's strategy for the war in Iraq, who overwhelming want a complete timeline for troop withdrawal established, and who overwhelming want US troop withdrawal, particularly National Guard withdrawal to begin IMMEDIATELY!
--We need a new representative; One who keeps her word and speaks for her constituents, the citizens of the State of Washington, not for the Bush Administration. -
Dear Senator Murray,
Your statement that your position on the Iraq war is non-negotiable is unconscionable and Highly un-democratic. I hope not only to see you defeated for re-election but to see you brought to prosecution for international crimes in the holocaust which is the Iraq war, along with other perpetrators of this Holocaust.
