Edwards Begs College Kids To Help Terrorism

From those nostalgic flower children at the Associated Press:

Edwards offers students anti-war advice

By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writer Sat May 12

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards appealed to college graduates Saturday to join him in demanding an end to the war in Iraq.

“Congress’ real power to end this war is to use its funding power. But while that’s Congress’ only real power, it is not the only power in America,” Edwards said in a commencement speech at New England College. “The irresistible power of America lies in your hands, in the hands of the American people.”

Also Saturday, Edwards launched a Web site — http://www.supportthetroopsendthewar.com — that outlines his plan to end the unpopular, 4-year-old war.

“Each of us has a responsibility as an American, as a duty to our troops and to each other, to do every single thing we can to support those troops and end this war,” Edwards said.

He said young people helped to bring about civil rights, end the Vietnam war and promote anti-Apartheid causes.

“Today, we are at that place again. It is time for you — all of you — to take responsibility for your country, for your government, for your community,” Edwards said. “Help our nation break its silence, speak out.”

He said anything less is a failure…

Edwards then visited a carpenters’ union picnic near Nashua and asked them to help him end this war.

“George Bush has used the word ‘patriotism’ to justify every bad thing that he’s done, everything to Guantanamo, to the illegal spying on Americans to the ongoing war in Iraq,” said Edwards, who had changed from his academic robes into jeans and a button-down shirt.

Man, it just kills the left that the campuses are not rising up in open revolt against the war.

Which is why they are dying to bring back the draft.

Say, do you think Edwards offered any of these kids subprime loans to pay off their college debt?
