The video is John Edwards latest ad, which essentially says the same thing as the following letter that I just sent to my two senators, and my representative:
As one of your constituents, I am writing to implore you not to give in to the President's demand for a modified Iraq spending bill that gives him unlimited ability to continue his failed policies in the Middle East.
Prematurely withdrawing your efforts to bring an end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq - before Congress has completed the mission to which it was tasked during the 2006 midterm elections - will only embolden the President!
Allowing funding for an unlimited "war" will do nothing but offer aid and comfort to the President, as he will know that all he has to do is wait out the will of the American people, and then he can continue his efforts to overthrow the Constitution and terrorize those whose beliefs differ from his radical fundamentalist agenda!
Please do not change your course before accomplishing the mission that is backed by a majority of the country and the rest of the world, including the Iraqi people.
The President and his supporters have called the Democrats quitters, losers and of having a defeatist attitude toward following through with their stated intentions.
On behalf of myself and the majority of your constituents who want this war to end as soon as possible, please don't prove them right!
