Murtha Email: "Cut the Traitor Talk" (barf alert: calls Rove "Fat")
Email from Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ^ | 7/13/06 | Rep. Jack Murtha

Posted on 07/13/2006 4:17:24 PM PDT by tellw

(I got this in my email today from info@dscc.org -- tellw)

DEAR WILLIAM:

To all the Republicans who sit in their air-conditioned offices and talk of the courage it takes for them to keep young kids in harm's way - I say enough. Karl Rove talking about "cutting and running" while he sits on his big, fat backside-saying "stay the course." I say enough! That's not a plan! We've got to have a new direction, and it's clear we need more Democrats in Congress to get that done.

No matter how obvious the mistakes in Iraq become, or how many Americans get fed up, Republicans in Congress and the White House will label you a traitor to your country if you stand up and question them. I hope you will join me in my call to sign my petition to House Republicans. We hope to deliver 50,000 names to the Speaker of the House, asking them to cut the traitor talk and start to get a change of direction in Iraq - if you believe this Republican Congress has abdicated its responsibility long enough, please join us.

Tell Republicans to Cut the Traitor Talk and Chart a New Course. We Need a Real Plan for Victory - No More Just Sitting and Watching.

I'm not naïve enough to think it won't be an issue in the election year but accusing people of being unpatriotic cheats good Americans out of any chance for a real resolution to the mess in Iraq. And while this issue of war is neither a Democratic nor a Republican one, the need for new leadership in the House is clearly an issue.

While the Republicans have been busy name calling , the situation in Iraq has only gotten worse. The insurgency has grown exponentially. IED attacks, where our troops are sitting ducks for an enemy they can't even see, have increased steadily. And the patience of the American people for this flawed policy is running out.

We need to put an end to these outrageous attacks on people who disagree with Bush and his Rubber Stamp Republican Congress's "sit and watch" plan for Iraq.

Tell Republicans to Cut the Traitor Talk and Chart a New Course. We Need a Real Plan for Victory - No More Just Sitting and Watching.

With a Democratic majority, we would have an honest debate about the war. The American people's concerns and opposition would be recognized.

During the House floor debate a few weeks ago, I hoped the Republicans would have realized that the majority of the American people do not support this war. I hoped that they would have recognized that the American people need more from their government than a Republican Congress that asks no questions and demands no answers. But that didn't happen, and it's clear we need a Democratic majority to chart a new course.

When I offered a concrete plan to get our troops out of harm's way, where they have become the target, I didn't expect every member of Congress or every candidate to agree with my specific proposal in this debate. But I did expect them to acknowledge that there is more to be done than sitting and watching.

Tell Republicans to Cut the Traitor Talk and Chart a New Course. We Need a Real Plan for Victory - No More Just Sitting and Watching.

Thank you for all your help, it's so important.

Sincerely,

Jack Murtha
Member of Congress, Pennsylvania's 12th District

P.S. I'm offering this petition, which will be delivered to Speaker of the House in order to keep our Congress focused where it should have been all along. I hope you'll sign if you agree.

Tell Republicans to Cut the Traitor Talk and Chart a New Course. We Need a Real Plan for Victory - No More Just Sitting and Watching.

Murtha looks fat to me.

I suspect though that this was written by some some Democratic Op and Murtha just initialed it.

Murtha was no doubt prepping the battlefield for his friends in Hezballah to murder Israeli civilians.

By the way, we need to intensify the "traitor talk" since it's obviously getting under his skin as evidenced by how often he brings it up in this letter. Fax, call, e-mail and snail mail his office and accuse him of treason. It's obviously beginning to itch at him.

These "kids" VOLUNTEERED to serve their country(many to specifically go to Iraq) so that idiots like you can sit in your air-conditioned office.

Dear Mr. Murtha,

I'm sorry you are a TRAITOR to this country. I don't like to use the word TRAITOR excessively, Being called a TRAITOR is very very serious and can not be tossed around carelessly. That being said, you are a TRAITOROUS TRAITOR who has betrayed this country as a top tier TRAITOR would. If there were a TRAITORS Hall of Fame, you'd be the top inductee. You'd be the head coach of the Oakland TRAITORS. I've never actually met a real life TRAITOR, but I bet if I did, he would look like you and have the name Jack Murtha. TRAITOROUS TRAITOR.

You know, if you put a paper hat on Murtha he looks a lot like the Piggly Wiggly pig. I apologize to Piggly Wiggly for this comparison...

Murtha so rhymes with Mutha, and if I was a profane person, that is what I would call him. Ok, I am profane, as well as someone who has served twelve years on active duty in the United States Armed Forces.

Murtha, you are a Mutha ------!

He mentioned the word traitor what...4 times...in the e-mail?

What does that tell us gentle readers?

It tells us he has internal polls or focus groups that show the label is sticking to him. Libs dont waste time on anything that isnt hurting them.

Mark my words, they are worried about it.

Makes you wonder if this story is related to Murtha as well. Let's see, FBI wants Jack Anderson's files and Jack Anderson broke the ABSCAM story. According to reports, Lexis database has no archive of Jack Anderson's Murtha story which means it was scrubbed. It is an election year and the only person those papers could damage would be Jack Murtha!! Murtha has to be hiding even more than we might think!! U of U Professor Knows Location of Documents FBI Wants June 12th, 2006 @ 5:34pm Jon Dunn Reporting

Over the last few months, the FBI has turned to Jack Anderson's papers — papers the deceased investigative journalist amassed over the years in his work. KSL Newsradio has learned that thousands of pages of those documents are right here in Salt Lake City.

University of Utah Professor Tim Chambless befriended Anderson over the years, and has built his own collection of papers by writing about the columnist.

"The FBI was informed by the Anderson family that I was a person who knew more than anyone else," Chambless says.

Chambless says when FBI Director Robert Mueller visited Salt Lake City last week, he wanted to come clean about his six boxes full of papers, and wanted to tell the bureau why it will never see them.

"I believe in the First Amendment. Jack Anderson believed in the First Amendment," Chambless says.

Chambless sent a letter through his lawyer to Mueller, asking him to announce the end of the pursuit of the papers. Attorney Pat Shea says the papers are now hidden where no one will find them.
