Blumenauer Votes "No" on Afghanistan withdrawal

The "anti-war" Blumenauer, praised on indy recently by Portland "progressives", voted yesterday to deny the Kucinich resolution that called for Obama to bring the troops home from Afghanistan. The vote in the full House was 356 against the resolution, 65 in favor, with nine not voting.
It was clearly a vote that showed that there is one key issue in Washington where the Republicans and Democrats largely agree and that is endless war. Out of the 356 votes to shoot down the resolution, 189 of them were Democrats and 167 were Republican.

Blumenauers CIRCUS 12.Mar.2010 14:26

Joe Anybody

For over a year I stood once a week outside his office demanding accountability for war crimes and illegal occupations .......... HE COULD CARE LESS ...week after week ALL YEAR LONG!

In BIG Bold letters it should be noted to all "BLUMENAUER SUPPORTS WAR & USA OCCUPATIONS"

His office contact information is:
 http://blumenauer.house.gov/index.php?option=com_email_form&Itemid=206

Not that he really cares what you think about war killing and war criminal activity.

Blood is on his hands

Link to when he sat on stage and skirted the issue that everyone wanted at the Town Hall (but him) (he could care less) - film clip from Town Hall that was on 9/23/07
