It's still fairly early. A lot of folks still don't believe Murtha will face a serious challenge. Fine by me!

I'm heading out to a family reunion next weekend in Fayette county. About 70-80 people are gonna get a righteous Murtha schooling. They won't be pleased at what they hear.

You'll notice our friend Mom has not been back to defend her rumor.

I hate Trolls. Especially Murtha-supporting Trolls.

12. Murtha is a traitor. And for the guys I'll add one more... 13. Irey is a babe.

Don't forget 14 - Murtha is a traitor. Very important.

I would like to add 15 - Murtha is endorsed by Comrade Kerry



and 16 - Irey is a babe.

To: Coop

Another reason is that Murtha has become out of touch with his district and has been voting as a liberal instead of the conservative he claims back home to be. In particular:

Murtha voted against the Real ID Act, to establish and rapidly implement regulations for State driver's license and identification document security standards, to prevent terrorists from abusing the asylum laws of the United States, to unify terrorism-related grounds for inadmissibility and removal, and to ensure expeditious construction of the San Diego border fence.

Murtha was one of only 58 Representatives to vote against allowing federal courts to review the Terri Schiavo case while she was being starved to death.

Murtha voted to use taxpayer dollars to finance research that destroys embryos for their stem cells.

Murtha voted against the USA PATRIOT and Terrorism Prevention Reauthorization Act.

Murtha voted against the Gasoline for America's Security Act, to expedite the construction of new oil refineries in the United States and implement penalties to prevent gasoline suppliers from overcharging consumers.

There is no better defense than a good offense, and the best way to make sure that the GOP has a comfortable majority in the House of Representatives come next year is to make Democrat incumbents earn their reelection. A prime GOP takeover possibility is the PA-12, where the formerly conservative Democrat Jack Murtha has been making an ass of himself and has begun voting like Dennis Kucinich. Republican Diana Irey has an excellent chance of pulling off the upset in a district that gave Kerry only 51%, and she is deserving of our support. I already sent a donation her way; if every FReeper does the same, irrespective of the size of the donation, "Abscam Jack" Murtha will be sent home to Johnstown with his tail between his legs.

The "Peace" Democrats are Back - It's a Dream Come True for Karl Rove
Wall Street Journal ^ | August 7, 2006 | MARTIN PERETZ


Posted on 08/07/2006 10:28:41 AM PDT by West Coast Conservative


We have been here before. Left-wing Democrats are once again fielding single-issue "peace candidates," and the one in Connecticut, like several in the 1970s, is a middle-aged patrician, seeking office de haut en bas, and almost entirely because he can. It's really quite remarkable how someone like Ned Lamont, from the stock of Morgan partner Thomas Lamont and that most high-born American Stalinist, Corliss Lamont, still sends a chill of "having arrived" up the spines of his suburban supporters simply by asking them to support him. Superficially, one may think of those who thought they were already middle class just by being enthusiasts of Franklin Roosevelt, who descended from the Hudson River Dutch aristocracy. But when FDR ran for, and was elected, president in 1932, he had already been a state senator, assistant secretary of the Navy and governor of New York. He had demonstrated abilities.

At least in this sense, Mr. Lamont comes to this campaign for the U.S. Senate from absolutely nowhere--and it shows in his pulpy statements on public issues. Here is a paradigmatic one: "We need to provide parents and communities the support they need to assure that children start their school day ready to learn." Of course, he also thinks that U.S. troops should be replaced by the U.N. in Iraq. Does he know anything at all about the history of the idea that he so foolishly rescues from the dust? So what we have in this candidacy is someone, with no public record to speak of but with perhaps a quarter of a billion dollars to his name, who wants to be a senator. Mr. Lamont has almost no experience in public life. He was a cable television entrepreneur, a run-of-the-mill contemporary commercant with unusually easy access to capital.

The rats are starting to look like a stalled train on a railroad track with no signals with two speeding Amtrac trains hurtling to the stalled Rat Train on the same track from different directions.

The Two speeding Amtrac trains have banners saying "Out of Iraq, now!" The stalled DNC train has a banner saying, "Out of Bush's quagmire in Iraq!"
