From the John Edwards Campaign:
Tonight, after President Bush makes yet another argument for continuing the war in Iraq, John Edwards will speak directly to the American people in a nationwide address on MSNBC.
The Edwards campaign has bought airtime on MSNBC immediately following the President’s address at 9 p.m.(ET), and John Edwards will challenge the President’s remarks with a strong call to the nation to end the war now.
Please watch in that timeframe. Each of us has a responsibility to make sure that President Bush and Congress understand that the time for excuses has run out. John Edwards will deliver a strong message tonight on our behalf. It’s time to end this war and bring our troops home.
Buying this kind of airtime is expensive, but President Bush’s address must be countered with a strong voice in opposition to the failed policies that have kept our troops in harm’s way for far too long. Tonight, John Edwards will continue to lead, and make the case to the nation that we cannot wait for an election to change course in IraqÃ¢â‚¬â€we as citizens must make Washington understand that the time to end this war is now.
Don’t miss John’s address tonight on MSNBC, immediately following the President.
