All of which makes him another "useful idiot" for the anti-America crowd. These people place their desire for power far above the good of the nation and their "moral universe" precludes the possibility of shame - or even simple embarassment - at having their endless lies exposed for what they are. They will never STFU because their agenda calls for our downfall at any cost.

Murtha's office number is (814)535-2642.

Just called it. Even though I am not in his district, the guy who answered took my comments, which were the following:
* State the evidence that made you come to this conclusion, or leave. Come to think of it, he should leave anyhow.
* Even it it were true, you are hurting our effort and our troops, and I don't care what he did in the service. He is a traitor now.

Also called my congressman (Cantor - R) and asked what are they (Republicans) going to do about it. We have one party that seems to want the terrorists to win, and another party that tries to get along with them and does nothing about it. Pathetic.

Murtha should go!!!

This is an outrage!

Rep. Mothra is descibing himself - 'broken and worn out".

And John Murtha's assessment of the Army as being "broken" is based on - what? Not enough draftees? Doesn't "reflect" America? The mixed gender experiment isn't working out? The war materials are not available? Soldiers are not trained well enough?

Com' on, Jack, TELL us what's wrong. Then as a Member of Congress, DO something about it. FIX the Army. GIVE them the appropriations and authority to carry out their duties. Tell all your colleagues to get on board, and make this a joint effort to REALLY support the troops.

The tendency has been to state disagreement with the President's policies by chiseling away at the quality of our armed forces, and this is a very short-sighted policy. One of the reasons that the "Former Occupant of the Oval Office, 1993-2001" did not, could not, pursue any serious course of containing al-Qaeda during the 1990's, was that he was not sure of his leadership capability, and he knew the military was emaciated and unable to satisfactorily carry out a difficult combat assignment, as there would be no support. No matter what Wesley Clark may have been telling him.

Someone needs to challenge this guy instead of just sticking a microphone in his face and listening to his lies. He, like Pelosi (who sat on Fox yesterday and actually said this) deny any progress in Iraq. That is so far from reality that they are either deliberate liars or totally and completely incompetant.

Do you get as tired of "____ served in Vietnam" crap as I do. Why should that give them a pass for the rest of their lives? Personally don't think the people saying that are being up front with us on here what their true beliefs are.

Know some Marines that served in various Marine campaigns and they think Murtha should be brought back on duty and court martialed.

This makes me not like Pencilvania. I never had much use for that state. Everybody I met from there always wanted to fistfight. They need to clean up their mess.

I think he said it because the PA National Guard wants to come home.

What Ollie said on The Tony Snow Show is exactly correct, in fact we discussed that on the night of the vote in the House that came out 403-3....

WE knew back then...that this was Pelosi and Murtha's way of "inoculating" Murtha from critisim and investigations into the same thing that took down Duke Cunningham,

Who I believe is an equally courageous war hero..but, it didn't keep HIM from being critisized by the right...or, keep him from prosecution...

Murtha BETTER see what happened to Cunningham...NOT depend on Pelosi to keep his fat out of the fire.

The other side of that being that the rest of us shouldn't get to have an opinion. Well, I have an opinion. My opinion is that overwhelming force early saves lives. That's my opinion. Trickle, trickle, trickle, drip, drip, drip, doesn't do anybody any good.

I understand that there are ethics complaints outstanding against Mr. Murtha. Seems some DOD contract boodle was directed to Murtha's brother. Somehow I doubt that he'll go quietly like Duke Cunningham. If he plays ball here the Dems will back him in ethics fight.

My fellow Marines know who Bobby Garwood is. As a Marine I think this coward congressman surrender is worse than Garwood. Hey, he changed sides. Garwood never made believe he was with us after he had his change of heart.
This bum never learned to surrender from Marine Corps instructors.

I admire the service of Randy "Duke" Cunningham, who unlike John Murtha is a true war hero, not a phoney baloney wannabe. However, Cunningham has proven to be a low-life money grubbing political SOB who richly deserves the prison sentence he will get.

Murtha and Cunningham run with the same political pack - corrupt, egotisical, and arrogant. A pox on both of them.

Murtha also has raised some watchdogs’ concerns because his brother Robert “Kit” Murtha runs KSA Consulting, a lobbying group that represents some 10 smaller defense companies.

In 2004, Murtha’s brother was able to secure $20 million in the defense-spending bill for his clients.

Kit Murtha repeatedly has denied working directly with his brother’s office.

I wonder how many veterans and service members are in his district. Maybe he should be losing all those votes.

"He said the reason Murtha is saying all this is because Murtha may be coming under Congressional investigation on some other issue(s)."

He got himself a Duke Cunningham problem?

"Murtha is wanting to make it appear that that investigation is retaliation for Murtha's opinion on the war."

Just when you thought the Dems had hit rock bottom, the Dems get out a jackhammer.

I take offense at the grunt remark. While your assesment of Murtha is correct, I would never place Murtha in the same class as the honored grunts . Most grunts are smarter than you would think. The reason a lot of grunts do their grunt job is that they know it is a necessary and proud job. It may be dirty but we can get it done.
