I Am Taking The Pledge For Our Troops

I am taking the Pledge!

From Hugh Hewitt:

If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution.

Send It Here:
Ronald Reagan Republican Center
425 2nd Street, NE
Washington, DC 20002

Then e-mail Senator McConnell and Senator Ensign, and tell them too. Senator McConnell's phone number is (202) 224-2541. Senator Ensign's phone number is (202) 224-6244.

GOP activists and donors built the GOP senate delegation, as well as the majority that was punted away. They can disassemble it as well, and GOP support for a neoappeasement resolution is exactly the way to start that process.

The Congressional GOP has to realize it cannot have it both ways --you can't be for victory after you were against it.

And GOP senators --alone or as a group-- definitely cannot count on the support of the base if any of them vote for appeasement.

Take action by taking this pledge; fire off a few emails and perhaps make a couple phone calls. It will take about 15 minutes of your time.

Here is is the Website for the Pledge

Thanks WT and to all who participated. Hope the response is overwhelming. The RNC ignored the pleas all last year, maybe they still think we are only bluffing. I signed the pledge and sent the two lounge lizards the message.
