Senator Webb Takes a Stand!

Virginia's Senator Jim Webb has introduced legislation that restores the rightful constitutional power--to declare war--back where it belongs....to the Congress. Webb's Bill would prevent a war against Iran without Congressional power.

U.S. Secretary of State Condi Rice continued to supply "vague" answers to Webb's office on whether the Bush administration believed that Bush had the right to declare war against Iran without Congressional approval.

Webb has the guts to do what needs to be done to restore the checks and balances to our system of law based on the constitution. Hopefully, the rest of Congress will have the guts and the backbone to support Senator Webb's legislation.

It is expected that Webb's proposal can be "grafted" onto the Defense Spending Bill that should reach the floor next week.

I loved Jim Webb's books, actually before he ran. Born Fighting is a truly inspirational book. It's fortunate that we have such a guy in there slugging it out for teh rest of us. I was doing cartwheels when he was elected.

I was doing cartwheels while he was running...I just felt like he was the one who could un-seat Allen and "we" did it....

It feels great to finally have a Senator who can't be bought and is representing me.....what a refreshing change!!

We need more Jim Webbs.....buzz...buzz...
