Act Now! – Senate Resolutions and the Pledge

This is likely the last chance to act. If you are unaware, here is a real brief rundown:

Several resolutions opposing the troop surge Gen Petraeus (who was just unanimously approved by the Senate) requested will be considered by the Senate.

Unfortunately, several Republicans have placed political showboating first and concern for our military and victory somewhere lower on their list and are sponsoring/supporting some of the resolutions.

The resolutions are non-binding and are an attempt to snub President Bush. Ultimately, however, the real effect of the resolutions is to hurt the moral of our troops (as stated by Gen. Petraeus in a recent Senate hearing) and embolden our enemies (as stated by Sec. Def. Gates, in a recent interview).

Below is a list of key Republican contacts (also contact your own Senators!). Please firmly, but politely, ask them to oppose all such resolutions AND cloture attempts on the impending filibuster.

For more information also refer to Hugh Hewitt’s blog and the NRSC Pledge site.
