Unlike Kerry...which we know that the Navy gave him a dishonorable discharge to start (for his Paris trip to visit the North Vietnam representatives)...and Jimmy Carter gave him a cleaned up discharge, which states that its cleaned up...Murtha appears to have some kinda baggage in the midst of these records...either disciplinary action or a lost stripe. Even if Murtha released the medal paperwork...it'd probably make him look ok in this situation. There is something bigger in those records which he really doesn't want the public to see. Normally, I wouldn't care....he's a loser from Penn and not worth talking about. But he has stepped out of the shadows and pretends that he is representing us veterans at the table...and the spotlight ought to shine completely on the man (and his past). He isn't as clean as he pretends...and he ought not stand in front of the national media as some kinda hero.
...after what happen with kerry...you have to figure ANYTIME the democrats praise anyone doing anything with the military..somethings not right. Given the track record of the new liberal left Right now the American people are behind the military...the left has no choice, thus we see Hildabeast support, let those numbers change a bit...and you'll see the true military hating Hildabeast
As a veteran he should be well aware of the ramifications of his statements and their effect on enemy morale.
The medal issue is a red herring. His current actions are excrable, but if the medals were fully and undeniably deserved (or no one ca prove otherwise), the MSM will spin that into justification for all his other actions, too.
Forget the medals, attack the statements.
