so why can’t the dems stand up to him?

Poll: Most think Bush is failing second term

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A majority of Americans are more likely to vote for a candidate in November's congressional elections who opposes President Bush, and 58 percent consider his second term a failure so far, according to a poll released Thursday.

Fewer people consider Bush to be honest and trustworthy now than did a year ago, and 53 percent said they believe his administration deliberately misled the public about Iraq's purported weapons program before the U.S. invasion in 2003, the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll found.

Americans are ripe for a vocal opposition. Call your Senators and tell them so!

Massachusetts Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy have called for a filibuster of the unpopular President’s Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito. (Sign their petition.) Why won’t the minority leadership support them?

The New York Times agrees, “It is hard to imagine a moment when it would be more appropriate for senators to fight.” Why doesn’t the leadership seize this moment?

Call Minority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Whip Dick Durbin—and call your own Senators—and tell them all you want to see the Senate stand up to an unpopular President. Tell them to stand up for our democracy, stand up for our Constitutional rights, and stand against the confirmation of Judge Alito. Tell them the only way to fight for what we believe is to fight against the failed ideas and bad nominees of the Republican Party. Tell the Democrats to fight—tell them to filibuster!

You can phone the US Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or (888) 818-6641—an operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.

. . . and, of course, tell a friend.
