Murtha's "treasonous statements" are getting nothing but accolades and praise in the press.

Using your logic, are you stating it was meaningless for the Swifties to raise Kerry's medal issue and that it only generated sympathy for him? That controversy might have turned the tide in getting Bush elected.

Murtha has used those medals, as did Kerry, throughout his political career to get elected to public office. He didn't receive them until much later and has stated he didn't ask for them but they have the request with his name on it.

Murtha is another polpimp using a trumped up war record to score political gain. IMHO, this whole stunt is nothing more than an attempt to gain the media spotlight for a run at the dem prez nomination.

In fact the Swifties damaged John Kerry not because they exposed his medal record but because they exposed his utter treason against the Vietnam Vets and the country with his anti-war record in the early 1970’s. It will be foolish for us to think otherwise. Morano is not John O’Neil and he must understand this. I just hope that this issue will remain within the CNS news sphere and not to be taken by our much more influential radio talk show hosts.

Bob, we are not going to score political points on this but at the contrary we will lose some. Just let it go.

I agree it's a publicity stunt, but not to run for president: Murtha is pro-life and pro-gun, so he couldn't run for president asd a Democrat, and besides he's a terrible speaker and all he's any good at is getting pork for his district (at which he's a master).
