8th CD Dem Candidates Bash Bush, Iraq War

Each of the three 8th CD Dem candidates popped shots at the president and the war in Iraq Saturday morning. But Jamie Wall, a Green Bay businessman and former Department of Commerce hand, distanced himself from the pack, calling for the immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

"We’ve done everything we can do in Iraq and more. … It’s time for the
Iraqis to settle this; it’s time for us to bring our troops home," Wall declared to roaring applause.

Wall said he called for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield to resign months before several retired generals went on the air demanding he step down. Wall also called the war a "mistake to begin with."

"We never had a plan in Iraq," he added.

Former mayor of De Pere and former Brown Co. Exec. Nancy Nusbaum continued the theme saying the U.S. needs "to bring home the brave men and women that George Bush sent into Iraq with no plan."

Nusbaum on Wednesday began airing her first TV ad in the race calling on the President to do just that.

"It’s time to bring fiscal policy back to Wisconsin and fiscal services back to our veterans," she said.

"We are ready to send (8th CD Republican) John Gard back to Sun Prairie," Nusbaum joked, referring to the Madison suburb where Gard owned a home before selling it this spring.

Steve Kagen, the allergist from Appleton jumped on board, saying "George Bush, Mark Green, John Gard, your hocus pocus magic show has ended. Now please exit stage right like Tom Delay."

Though he also said the U.S. must end its involvement in the "civil war in Iraq," Kagen focused his remarks on taking back control of Congress from the "corrupt" Republican leadership this November.
