Schwarz comments on Iraq

After returning from a weekend trip to Iraq, U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz told a reporter Tuesday that Iraqis have six months to really get their act together and start functioning as a civil government.
"I think they have six months at the outside. Our message to them is 'Get with it. You have the support of the United States, you have the active support of some countries and certainly the tacit support of the rest of the world,'" Schwarz told Gannett News Service.
Schwarz joined a delegation led by Sen. John McCain that has advised the Bush Administration to consider convening a national unity summit in Iraq among the sectarian factions.
"The name of the game is get the government stood up," Schwarz told his hometown newspaper, The Battle Creek Enquirer.

He is doing a great job. I heard him talk at a lunch and it sounds like he got on the armed forces committee because of all his experience. It seems like he is a bright guy and his observations on the world are refreshing.

I feel confident he is doing a good job and it is amazing that he is our representative. I was all for Derosset last time, but it sure seems like this guy has his act together.

New schools, roads, bridges for Iraq. New bills for Adrian. No WMD, No 9-11 connection and NO ACCOUNTABILITY. Heckava job.

Time for a change in leadership. We need to light a fire under this administration's rear. They spy on us while lying to us. Where's that $8B stolen from the CPA? Where's the review of Halliburton's no bid contracts? Where is the review of manipulated intellegence to start this war?

I agree. The way he worked the entire BRAC commission in saving the ANG Base was remarkable. Had any other person been in office, Michigan would have lost a major portion of our states military.

We would be foolish to let anyone else represent us.
