Wexler Votes "Yes" on Iraq Withdrawal to Send a "No Confidence" Vote to Bush


Wexler Refuses to Support the President's Failed Iraq War Policy

(Washington, D.C.) Today, Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) issued the
following statement after voting in support of the House Resolution calling
for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. forces in Iraq:

"My vote in support of this resolution tonight sends an unequivocal message
to President Bush that his three-year, carte-blanche authority in Iraq must
come to an end. The American people have lost confidence in President Bush's
ability as Commander in Chief, and his flawed policies have failed to bring
stability and security to Iraq. It is time to hold the President and his
Administration accountable for their gross misuse of intelligence and
reckless post-war planning that has made America less secure. I voted for
this resolution to send a strong message of "no confidence" in the President
and to repudiate his failed policies in Iraq.

"This Republican resolution is irresponsible and a transparent political
ploy at best. What the House Leadership did this evening was a reprehensible
misuse of power and a blatant disservice to our troops. However, when given
the choice between 'staying the course' or voting 'no confidence' in the
President, I chose to voice my opposition to Bush's failures in Iraq,"
Wexler said.

Congressman Wexler is a senior member of the House International Relations
Committee and is a member of the House Judiciary Committee.

Never mind Wexler, did you all notice Rumsfelt trying to distance himself yesterday from the decision to invade :

...met the road on immediate withdrawal, there your footprint can be found. Not so for most of your Democrat colleagues.

How sad.
