Is Irey getting backing from the GOP or any deep-pockets conservative groups?

When I checked maybe a week ago, she had very little financial support from PACs, whereas Murtha not surprisingly had a lot of support.

No more defense contracts for Murtha and his cronies so he's reverted to his true feelings about our heroes.

Damn him.

This whole media mess disgusts me and everyone over here. these men lay their lives on the line and they have to watch the opposite on TV everyday. It undermines the sacrifice of almost 2500 soldiers. And why? because they hate Bush that much. Put politics aside, stop spewing garbage, and let us get the damn job done. You want us out? Shut the hell up and let us do our job, otherwise we will be here a lot longer.

Amen! Thank you for defending our freedom. May you be effective, deadly when necessary, compassionate when possible, and home to your loved ones very soon.

God bless all our servicemembers and others serving in the GWOT!

No, you don't really mean that. Not only would it be immoral and illegal, but this piece of trash ain't worth the effort. Plus said Marines would then be guilty of the very thing this SOB is accusing them of.

Let him defend his words.

OK. I don;t mean to jump in a conversation I'm not part of, but wait, yes I do. So what if someone double posted an article. There are much more important things going on right now than to sit here and squabble over something as little as that. Let it go and let people talk about the article. Are you so consumed in self loathing you forget to realize we are speaking about Marines who are risking their lives and catching grief in the media because they do their jobs? Get over it.

Also, what is the deal with your tagline? Did I miss something there? what I love about this website is you get to here many people's opinions on various subjects. Discussin issues is what maeks them understandable from other points of view.

Self consumed? Nobody said anything about double posting an article. Suggest you get your facts straight before jumping on someone.

My tagline is unfortunately incredibly accurate.

MATTHEWS: Was this My Lai?

A simple observation I don't think can be denied:

Chris Matthews is so against this war he LOVES hearing this kind of stuff. I don't mean in a journalistic way one "loves" a "good story"--he acutally seems to find some comfort that this war has (in his view) turned into barabrism.

A truly strange person. He seems unhinged and is living in his own version of the reality of what's going on over there.

Rolling up the shirt sleeves. We have some work to do:

12th congressional district primary results

Let's put our shoulders to the wheel, FReepers. Taking down traitor Murtha should be a priority one mission. How many lives has he cost with his lies and sedition? How long will you allow the stench of his self-serving corruption to poison the air over Shanksville, where flight 93 lies? What are our heros really worth to you?

Write a letter to the editor supporting your troops and publicly chastising Murtha and calling for his resignation.

This is one of the most important things you've mentioned.

Pick up your local newspaper and chances are the opinion section is filled with nasty letters from liberals bashing Bush, Cheney, the local Republican Congressman, etc etc. My hometown paper routinely runs about 95% liberal in the opinion section - it's clear the liberals know and understand the importance of publicity, while Conservatives seem content to sit back, observe, shake their head in disagreement then move on to the next thing.

Write those letters, people! Let the newspapers know we're out there and we will not be silent!

In my view, he opposes the war not because he cares about the soldiers involved or our National Interests, but because the dimboRATs are out of power. He blows off a lot of hot gas trying to change the balance of power in the nation. Unfortunately, many people listen to him.

As an ex-Marine Murtha really shows his true colors. His is not a brother nor a friend to the Marine Corps. Nontheless,
In order to make his point he would convict his mother rather than wait for the investigation to be completed.

From www.IREY.com:

Irey Responds to Murtha’s Comments that U.S. Troops Killed Iraqi Civilians in Cold Blood

IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Jason Davidek 412.330.7844

May 18, 2006

Monongahela, PA – Today, Washington County Commissioner and Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey responded to her opponent’s recent comments claiming that U.S. Troops were responsible for the death of innocent Iraqi civilians.

“I was shocked and dismayed by my opponent’s charge that U.S. Marines are responsible for murdering Iraqi civilians in cold blood. Why John Murtha would say such a thing in the wake of an ongoing investigation and accuse our troops of such horrific actions is beyond comprehension,” Irey said.

Murtha made these comments at a press conference yesterday. “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood,” Murtha said. He made these comments to reporters regarding an incident that occurred November 19th in Haditha, Iraq.

“There is no doubt that my opponent’s disregard for the presumption of innocence and Due Process will have an adverse effect on troop morale. Unfortunately, instead of showing support for our military personnel, his partisan rhetoric will only harm our country at this fragile time. His continued comments are a devastating blow to millions of men, women and children in the Middle East who are just getting their first taste of Democracy.” Irey said.

GO DIANA GO!!!

Coop re-post from another thread:

I just received word from someone close to Ms. Irey's campaign that they have received about 50 online contributions since 9pm EDT last night. Plus numerous phone calls requesting the campaign address, and a significant spike in website hits.

Thank you Free Republic, for sending a message to Mr. Murtha, and especially to our troops! And thanks to all the other interested forums following this despicable behavior and promoting Murtha's opponent - Diana Irey.
