John Edwards Calls on Bush to Fire Karl Rove

Thursday night, during the Presidential debate, John Edwards will call upon President Bush to fire Karl Rove.

Karl Rove’s shameless attempts to twist the federal government for partisan gain have simply gone too far. Rove is now clearly at the heart of the political firing and replacement of U.S. Attorneys warping the impartial execution of justice that all Americans depend on—and that’s just the beginning. We need to take a stand right now to defend the integrity of our government and our democracy—Karl Rove must be fired.

He has a petition he'd like you to sign.

Will Bush listen? Not to John alone. Not to you or me alone. But if thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of us speak out together to demand accountability for Karl Rove and end their era of cynical, destructive, partisan government—we cannot be ignored.

Please add your name, so when John speaks out at tomorrow's debate it's clear that he's speaking for thousands. We'll keep a signature counter online to show how many have joined the call.

    not to be nit picky or anything, but mr. bush hasn't listened to anyone outside his small coterie his entire life, what makes mr. edwards think he's going to start now, even if the entire voting age population of the country were to sign?

    Edwards would have better luck.... (5.00 / 2) (#6)

    Does no one here realize what a scam online petitions are? has anything ever come from these silly things?
    They are just a way to collect your email address and information.

    Don't waste your time!!
