“Hogwash.”

That’s the word Vice President Cheney used last week to dismiss suggestions that the Bush Administration’s blunders and failures have hurt its credibility on Iraq. He even went on to boast, “Bottom line is that we've had enormous successes, and we will continue to have enormous successes.”

Cheney’s statements come in response to increased criticism of the Bush Administration’s recent plan to escalate the war in Iraq by increasing the amount of troops there by over 21,000.

This is just the latest bit of evidence that the Bush Administration is entirely out of touch with the will of the American people – and with reality. That is why Council for a Livable World is working with Friends Committee on National Legislation to promote a National Call In Day today to tell Congress to oppose escalation.

Please join tens of thousands of others today by calling your Senators and telling them to support legislation opposing escalation. Here is the number to call:

800-594-1015

Tell the operator what state you live in and they will connect you with your Senators. Tell them you want them to vote against Bush’s escalation. Your support can make a real difference.

The American public overwhelming disapproves of President Bush and opposes his escalation plan. A recent CBS News poll indicates that an overwhelming 72% of Americans do not support President Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq and a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll reports that 66% of Americans oppose the President’s escalation plan.

Congress is both listening and acting. In the Senate, there are currently two pieces of legislation criticizing President Bush’s escalation: one resolution being promoted by a bipartisan group of Senators, including Joseph Biden, (D-DE), Chuck Hagel (R-NE), Carl Levin (D-MI), and Olympia Snowe (R-ME), while another version is being pushed by Senators John Warner (R-VA), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Ben Nelson (D-NE). Efforts are being made to forge a compromise between the two resolutions.

A vote on the Biden-Hagel-Levin-Snowe resolution could come as early as this week or the week after. Please call your Senators at 1-800-594-1015 and tell them to support legislation opposing escalation and to vote “aye” for cloture, a Senate procedure requiring 60 Senators to vote “aye” in order to proceed with the debate and votes.

In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE), previously a strong supporter of the Administration, sharply criticized President Bush for his handling of the Iraq War, noting, “The more I look back on it, the more I think that the administration knew there was some real hard question whether [Saddam Hussein] really had any WMD. … So to answer your question – Do I regret that vote [authorizing the use of force against Iraq]? Yes, I do regret that vote.”

We need more Senators like Chuck Hagel speaking out against President Bush’s terrible blunders and failures in Iraq. Please call your Senators at 1-800-594-1015 and tell them to support legislation opposing escalation and to vote “aye” for cloture on the Biden-Hagel-Levin-Snowe resolution.

Sincerely,

John Isaacs and Guy Stevens
