Murtha says America poses top threat to world peace!
Drudge Report ^

Posted on 06/26/2006 8:52:12 AM PDT by Gopher Broke

Pull out of Iraq now, congressman urges

Cover-up of Haditha killings wrong, he says

By Elizabeth Baier South Florida Sun-Sentinel Posted June 25 2006

American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to a crowd of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon.

Murtha was the guest speaker at a town hall meeting organized by U.S. Rep. Kendrick B. Meek, D-Miami, at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus. Meek's mother, former U.S. Rep. Carrie Meek, D-Miami, was also on the panel.

War veterans, local mayors, university students and faculty packed the Mary Ann Wolfe Theatre to listen to the three panelists discuss the war in Iraq for an hour.

Murtha is insane. I want him to keep talking, all he does is hurt the Democrats.

Anne Coulters comments ringing more true everyday. Dems/Libs say you can't criticize Murtha cause he served.

So did Benedict Arnold!

Murtha and Kos and currently pursuing the Sheehan trajectory: she began as an apparently flawless avatar of Democratic talking points - the grieving mother of a slain hero.

She was revealed to be an unhinged, egomaniacal, starf***ing moonbat.

Kos was supposed to be a bright independent and web-savvy progressive srategist who would lead the Democrats to a new generation of voters. He is now revealed to be a scummy, payola-grafting loudmouth who hangs out with stockfraud pimps and weirdo astrologers.

Murtha is supposed to be a retired marine colonel of great bravery and integrity who is reluctantly entering the spotlight to challenge injustice. He is now revealed to be a self-promoting, bribe-soliciting grifter with a clear agenda of trying to parlay cowardice into a Majority leadership.

Keep these people talking and in the public eye!

I know guys who spent more time in the head in Nam than this idiot spent in-country. Then we need to take a look at where he was and what he did while he was there.
As we take a look at the total time he claims to be in the marines we find that almost all of those years he was in the reserves right her at home playing the weekend warrior routine. He has a big mouth but very little substance behind it.

What I don't understand is how his constituents can think that he's a good Congressman just because he is able to attract media attention by running around the country making a fool of himself.

Does anybody know the political makeup of Murtha's congressional district?

Has he billed himself to his constituents as a right leaning moderate Democrat?

I guess what I'm asking is if there is a chance of him losing his seat or are we stuck with him?

Is there any video of this "panel discussion?" It would make great internet fodder.

I checked the main newspaper (The Johnstown Tribune) in Murtha's district and did not see one word of this reported. I just hope the voters in his district are getting the news from other sources because they won't get it from the Tribune.

We do, if you are a foreign dictator or an American isolationist.

Well, the Dems did get him to drop his campaign for the dimwit, um, Dem Whip, was it, position?

I'm confused, because I read it was Whip, but various pundits said it was for Pelosi's job, but there are many more Dems
that want it that aren't as mentally and ethically challenged as Murtha, so maybe he will get the job.

Did I say job? Position, really.

Great "story" on cutting and running at The Peoples Cube:

"To cut and run is every American's right, entitlement, and a patriotic duty," demanded Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), adding that this plan is likely to become a central issue in the upcoming November elections. "If we grant every American the right to walk away from any task without completing it, they'll all vote for us. I would!"

"Has he billed himself to his constituents as a right leaning moderate Democrat?"

GOP needs to replay Murtha's own lines to his constituents repeatedly in the election campaign. Can't imagine this sad sack POS traitor getting re elected. He needs to go and is the poster boy for TERM LIMITS. If he does get re elected then Bigtime SHAME on W. Pa.

Laz, I disagree the guy's insane. I think he wants a leadership position in his caucus and realizes he has to appeal to the moonbats to advance.

I agree what he's doing will hurt the Dims in November, however, just like their cut and run resolutions last week.

That is the problem with so called safe seats. Redistricting on a regular, instead every Census time, is a must to make sure there are more fair representations. His opponent is a real smart, gorgeous lady who hasn't a chance. Too bad because she has some good ideas. He by now is apparently unhinged.

"[The United States] became the target when Abu Ghraib came along," Murtha said.

So, according to Murtha, the attacks of 9/11 came AFTER the disclosure of a few soldiers' misbehavior at Abu Ghraib? What color is the sky on Murtha's planet? I recall that after those disclosures, the US offered to close Abu Ghraib out of "sensitivity" to the offended Iraqis, and the Iraqis said, basically, "Grow up. We've seen a whole lot worse."
