Murtha made the following remarks via MoveOn.Org in connection with his resolution:
"I believe before the Iraqi elections, scheduled for mid December, the Iraqi people and the emerging government must be put on notice that the United States will immediately redeploy. All of Iraq must know that Iraq is free. Free from United States occupation."
That's my shorthand handle around here.
If Republicans were one-tenth as rough with the congressman who wants to withdraw troops in the middle of a war as they are on a congresswoman who calls it cowardly to withdraw troops in the middle of a war, we might have a functioning Republican Party.
This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for the perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author all 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of the good stuff that is worthy of attention. You can see the list of articles I pinged to lately on my page.
You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about). Besides this one, I keep 2 separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson and Orson Scott Card.
Coulter has just expressed the reason why I'm not giving so much as a dime to the Republican fundraisers. I'll vote for Republicans (if I like them), but I will not write checks to support this kind of nonsense. Republicans are in control of the House and the Senate--not to mention the Presidency. If they can't lead, maybe they shouldn't run next time, and make way for someone who CAN.
They are not the same, and if you were "intellectually honest," you wouldn't be saying that. Are Republicans mooshy right now? You bet. But they do know the difference between fighting a war, and surrendering--at least when it comes to Iraq. In politics, it's a different matter.
I don't watch B&B but I still know what "nads" are.
Well, it's a bit like Marc Antony calling Caesar's murderers "Honorable Men" before he denounced them to the mob. They are a bunch of wussies though. Roman Senate, same way.
Why oh why can't one of them shoot back with "you're damn right I'm questioning his patriotism!"
Better yet, start dropping the T-BOMBs.
The words TREASON and TRAITORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We used to call that guts so we could be gender equal. Why did it have to switch to a male only part of the anatomy?
Well put, Ann. ...again. :-)
Who says he had any honor as a Marine? Let him prove it to me. Who says those aren't "Kerry" purple hearts? I don't believe it because Murtha has been an anti-troop liberal for the last 20 years. He's an example of all that's bad about porcine politicians. Harrumph.
We went through the same crap with Cindy Sheehag with everyone kissing her butt until they realized what a traitor she really was. I prefer to say that military service then does NOT give you a free pass now. Many a military or intelligence man has gone over to the enemy.
Yeah, good time to be an independent. Make them earn your vote.
The vote was 403-3. The Republicans disagreed with Murtha on POLICY, while making it clear that they were not personally attacking the man. That was the correct approach. Ann, however, has bought into the notion that it's not enough to disagree on policy; vicious personal attacks are necessary. That's 'Rat logic; we're better than that (although she isn't).
In order to make her point, she had to quote Henry Hyde on his praise only, and leave out the remark that "among his great qualities, infallibility is not one of them." Ann has become an intellectually dishonest attack dog who plays to emotion, not logic. She's no better than the 'Rats who can't do anything other than launch personal attacks.
I can't wait for the day when the President makes Ann his Sister Souljah.
If you had bothered to pay attention to his career, or at least to his words on the House floor during the debate on the resolution, then you would know that Murtha has consistently advocated MORE spending and MORE troops for 20 years.
He is wrong on Iraq, but to claim that he has been anti-troop for 20 years is just ignorant.
