The people who end up under the bus are those who don't act. Let's not overreact, but let's ACT.
Don't like what Gates said? Say so:
Capitol Hill Switchboard number (202) 224-3121
White House Switchboard number (202) 456-1111
Anyone can just sit around and complain, or worse, throw up his or her hands and give up. How does that get us anything? We elected Obama and gave the Democrats larger majorities in both houses of Congress. Give them some feedback, now.
Time to step up, folks; flex your muscle, or you'll lose it. Consider it a test, a trial balloon. If Congress and the WH are flooded with responses, you might not end up under the bus after all.
