Enough is enough
On Thursday night, President Bush called for a withdrawal of 5,700
U.S. troops from Iraq -- leaving an astonishing 165,000 American men
and women exposed to gunfire, explosives, incendiary devices,
ambushes, and street attacks, in the midst of a civil war.
And 11 more Americans have died in the past week.

I am the only Democratic candidate with a concrete plan to end the
war, and my campaign staff and I are talking about the Richardson
Plan with voters in every way we can. We're making videos and
posting them on the internet. Our volunteers are canvassing in Iowa
and New Hampshire and in cities and towns across America. We're
working the phones and explaining why the Richardson Plan is the
right approach on Iraq. We're buying radio and TV ads in critical
markets. And we're reaching out to potential supporters by direct
mail and email to explain my Plan and why it makes sense.
Enough is enough!
President Bush needs to stop putting his historical legacy ahead of
the safety of our troops and the security of our nation. And the
troop withdrawal needs to begin today.
Stand with me, by making your special contribution now. Contributing
right now means your gift will be worth twice as much to our cause.
I'm grateful for your continued support.
Governor Bill Richardson
