To the editor:
I wonder when Congress is going to get fed up and censure the president.
Censure is a tool the Constitution provides for the Congress to deal with highly difficult, dangerous and rare situations like we find ourselves in today.
This president has not only misled the United States into the worst blunder in our history but he refuses to provide any remedy and continues to dump military personnel, hardware resources and our nation's financial future into the black hole his failed policy has created in the Middle East.
The American people now understand the invasion of Iraq was not about weapons of mass destruction but about a longstanding personal grudge the president held against Saddam Hussein.
The president is not only taking this nation down, but while we wring our hands and fret about what to do, we are being diverted from taking on the more important issue of global warming. We should take our proper role of leading a worldwide effort to get that under control before it is too late. Our fixation on Iraq is now threatening the entire planet.
It's time for Congress to say enough is enough and get on with censuring the president if he continues to refuse to work with them.
If the president still refuses to comply with Congress and the American people, his failure will amount to opening the door to impeachment proceedings.
