We need a stronger message

FISA Action Page: It's Time For A Majority Leader Who Is More Than A Gutless Supplicant

Yesterday Harry Reid again brought forward the version of the FISA bill containing a provision for telecom immunity for their criminal complicity in illegal wiretaps of American citizens. Sure we need to win another filibuster, but we also need a stronger message. Reid must go.

What part of exercising power doesn't Harry Reid get? The Washington Post reports him "pleading" with the White House. And yet, it is his decision which version of the FISA bill to have the Senate consider, and by choosing to bring forward the bad one, he is knowingly forcing opponents of yet another "get out of jail free card" for Cheney cronies to get 60 votes to strip it out of the bill. Or filibuster yet again.

This is the last straw. Time and again he has abdicated his leadership, claiming he is "personally" opposed to things, while collaborating to stack the deck in favor of the other side of the policy issue. Reid has got to go.

And call them on the phone too. Here are the tested toll free numbers, 800 828-0498, 800 614 2803 and 866 340 9281. And there is a local phone number lookup on the regular action page above to get you all the local district phone numbers.

OK, those are the basics. Now it's time for us to breathe some fire of our own.

And please keep in mind, as with all our action pages, no words will be sent on your behalf to your members of Congress, neither from this alert nor on the action page itself, but the stated subject line, "Reid Must Step Down As Majority Leader Over His Telecome Immunity Surrender", and your additional personal comments if any.

But first, if you still have not yet gotten your "Impeach Cheney?" cap, this is your LAST chance to pick up one of these historic collector's items. On Monday, Dennis Kucinich intends to introduce proposed articles of impeachment against Bush as well, so this will be the last batch of caps about Cheney alone. Get the cap where it all started while you can.

Alright then, put on your flameproof protective gear, here we go.

The word feeble does not even begin to describe how ineffective Reid has been as majority so-called leader in representing the interests of the people. A leader does not repeatedly tell his caucus they are on their own, while working behind the scenes to cripple any real opposition. And in so doing, he has done nothing but grease the neocon agenda for as far back as the eye to see. For them he has been as very effective, as a co-conspirator.

He gave his private blessing to the Gang of 14 that stuck us with two additional lockdown reactionary votes on the Supreme Court for the next generation. And it goes downhill from there. More recently his unilateral caving in has stuck us with an evil White House con job dubbed "The Surge", the sole purpose of which was to drag out the death and destruction in Iraq at least another 2 years.

On the few occasions there have been successful filibusters under his rudderless non-leadership he has actually publicly apologized for it, like when we practically prostrated himself on the rejection of the John Bolton nomination, promising to cave yet again if they would just provide a couple extra redacted documents pretty please. We're surprised that Dick Cheney doesn't make him wear a flowered dress with little pink bows on the Senate floor.

Is he the Senate majority leader or is he a mouse? Reid makes Neville Chamberlain look like Richard the Lion Hearted. He is long overdue to be put out to pasture, hopefully one without gophers that might accidentally frighten him.

So again, none of these words of ours will go to your member of Congress, unless you choose to paste some of them in as part of your own personal comments on the action page.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
