Send Iraqi-U.S. Troop Agreement to Congress, Says Bob Barr

Sub-Title: 

It is up to Congress, with constitutional authority over war and treaties, to decide on the length of America’s commitment

“The Bush administration reportedly has reached an agreement to keep U.S. combat troops in Iraq until the end of 2011," says Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party's nominee for president. "Congress should demand to see the proposed agreement and should approve, disapprove, or modify it."

"The administration has treated the war as a presidential prerogative from the very beginning," notes Barr. "It is time for Congress to insist on fulfilling its constitutional responsibilities.  If the president refuses to comply, Congress should cut off money for any bases in Iraq."

Biden?

A text message arrived at my phone this morning announced that Democratic Senator Barack Obama had selected Delaware Senator Joe Biden as his running mate.  I looked at it, said, "No surprise there," and went back to sleep.

McCain and Republican Party Try to Block Barr From Ballot

Sub-Title: 

McCain contradicts 2000 pledge to never use supporters to keep candidates from ballot

Bob Barr's presidential campaign has recently learned of an action by the McCain campaign and the Pennsylvania Republican Party to have Barr removed from the state's ballot, this despite McCain's promise in the 2000 election that he would, "never consider, ever consider, allowing a supporter of [his] to challenge [his opponent]'s right to be on the ballot in all 50 states.''

Reason takes a hard look at the LP

Dave Weigel, an associate editor of Reason magazine, has recently penned a fantastic article on the Libertarian Party and the potential it has with nominee Bob Barr at the top of the ticket.  

The highlight of the article was the focus on the success of the Libertarian message in transforming Barr, who once was the target of Libertarians, into its presidential nominee.  "After hoping for so long to win prominent converts to the cause," writes Weigel, "the Libertarian Party finally had managed to do it."
