Russ “You’re all out of touch” Feingold speaks!
WASHINGTON, Jun. 26 (UPI) — U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., one of the few senators to vote against invading Iraq in 2003, says Congress is out of touch with the U.S. people on the war.

"The American people have had it with this intervention," Feingold told NBC's Tim Russert on "Meet the Press" Sunday. "They do want a timetable for bringing home the troops. And the fact that the United States Senate doesn't get it shouldn't surprise you."

Feingold co-sponsored an Iraq amendment calling for a U.S. withdrawal by July 2007 with former Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, D-Mass., last week, but only 10 fellow Democrats and one independent voted in favor of the resolution during Senate debate on the war.

"It's only here in Washington that people don't understand it's time to end this mistake, to end our military involvement there," he told Russert, who introduced Feingold as a potential presidential candidate in 2008.

"The real distinction is between those who adapt their purposes to reality and those who seek to mold reality in the light of their purposes."
Henry Kissinger
