Do Something!

I admit that in my haste and my transition I have deleted the common Howard Dean / John Kerry / Democrat email list messages that I have received of late. I, however, was foolish enough to open the email from Howard Dean today, titled, "Show them the door."

Democrats in the House and Senate are busy holding Alberto Gonzales and the rest of his cronies accountable for seven years of failed leadership. They're ready to cast a vote of no-confidence after years of the Bush Administration abusing its power.

Americans want action, and that's what Democrats are delivering. House Democrats Adam Schiff and Artur Davis introduced a resolution yesterday calling for Gonzales' removal, stating that he failed to "assure the public that the laws of the nation are being enforced in an independent, nonpartisan and judicious manner."

As Republican Senator Arlen Specter said Sunday, Congress's response is "a very forceful, historical statement" -- not the "meaningless political act" the White House would like Americans to believe.

It's time for that to change, and that will only happen if we put a Democrat in the White House. Help put an end to the failed Republican leadership once and for all:

The Democrats, after taking power, claimed that they were "ready" to "govern." In fact, they have done none of the sort. Wasting time on a no-confidence vote based on 3-year old emails and passing the largest tax increase in American history is all that the Democrats seem able to handle. Failed leadership? Must you at first lead to then fail?
