A Special Comment about the DemocratsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ deal with President Bush to continue financing this unspeakable war in IraqÃ¢â‚¬â€and to do so on his terms:
For the president, and the majority leaders and candidates and rank-and-file Congressmen and Senators of either partyÃ¢â‚¬â€there is only blame for this shameful, and bi-partisan, betrayal.
Few men or women elected in our historyÃ¢â‚¬â€whether executive or legislative, state or nationalÃ¢â‚¬â€have been sent into office with a mandate more obvious, nor instructions more clear:
Get us out of Iraq.

Our politics… is now about the answer to one briefly-worded question.
Who among us will stop this warÃ¢â‚¬â€this War of Lies?
To he or she, fall the figurative keys to the nation.
To all the othersÃ¢â‚¬â€presidents and majority leaders and candidates and rank-and-file Congressmen and Senators of either partyÃ¢â‚¬â€there is only blameÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ for this shameful, and bi-partisan, betrayal.
Good night, and good luck.
