Yeah Coop,I reckon your right. He will be very selective as to he talks to. Hell,he probably won't even debate Irey.

Actually, I think the sleazebag will have to debate her. She's already gotten under his skin. [grin] With the private investigator hiring and a few of his comments, he's already had to publicly acknowledge her efforts. Her fundraising success from last quarter will only improve her name recognition. I think she'll soon be able to publicly challenge him to debates to where he'll be forced to respond. Otherwise our "big, bad, brave, hawkish Marine combat veteran" might not look so tough. :-)

But I wouldn't anticipate any debate before Labor Day.

Forgot to ping you earlier. You'll find this Murtha verbal vomit amusing, in a "rip your hair from your head and stab a pencil in your eye" sort of way.

Blah, blah, blah. Murtha doesn't ever say anything new but he and the media love each other. They keep printing anything he says.

I wonder if he is just saying ANYTHING outrageous, having become a darling of the CodePink "people." CodepInk, which gave $600,000 to Fallujah's insurgent community.

Do you think that talk like this may embolden the Iranians? All this talk about the army being worn out, stretched to thin.....

Well, Ahamhead sure has been mouthy since this moron started spewing his garbage.

"Our troops have become the primary target of the insurgency," Murtha said. Islamic insurgents "are united against U.S. forces, and we have become a catalyst for violence,"...It's time to bring them home."
Murtha -- November 18, 2005

With my tin foil hat firmly in place, I would like to point out that the "alleged" Haditha "masacre" took place on November 19, 2005.

I'm convinced they really believe the American people are so unattached from whats going on in politics, (and/or stupid) that they can make us believe anything, if only they get themselves all singing from the same sheet of music. Consistent lies may seem like truth, to those who are asleep at the wheel, politically.

This is how we got Tom Daschle. A man who told S.Dakotans he was conservative and supported the President for years and got away with it, but was the most vile, snide, politician we have had in decades. All it took was for the President to go up there and tell them the truth. To further add insult to injury, when Daschle knew he was on the verge of losing, he insulted the intelligence of people of the tribes, as they like to refer to themselves, by putting out a quick story on election day that white people were seen at the polls "looking at" (the Native Americans) and "shaking their heads" (which they find very insulting) This didn't work, or at least not enough to win.

People are so disconnected from politics which they find lame and boring. The Democrats contribute to that by constantly whining. They may even be conciously doing it for that purpose.

But lets face it, part of the problem is the fact that RNC has been brain-dead for decades. There simply isn't any intellence in there.

The reason Bush went to S.D? I called his campaign and suggested they go up there and do something about it (That was in 2000. they didn't get around to fixing it until '04) I said "I can't believe the people of S.D. are so messed up they would send this vile idiot to D.C. ---whats going on in there?" She said "I don't know" I said "we need to get in there and find out."

I also told them in 2000 to campaign in Tennessee (she said: "do you really think we can win?") and in Arkansas (I pointed out we already had a GOP Governor there) Why can't they see these things themselves? I also told them how to fix Florida (get some rich GOP'rs to build more middle-class family housing to counter the condo-Liberals, and check for NY'ers on the polls --- they found 40,000 NY'rs on rolls for both states and Katherine Harris cleaned them off! All that counting for 300 more votes!---looking for hanging chads! No more! They will never win in Florida again!) This is just common sense, stuff, not rocket science.


The main point about S.D. is its such a great example of democrat deception, aided and abetted with liberal media.
All those Daschle conferences on C-span in hushed tones. Nobody in S.D. watches C-span!

The 'war' in Iraq wasn't supposed to last this long. And the 'war' in Iraq didn't. The WOT took over. Maybe all his defense appropriations aren't being appropriated like he'd promised.

Let's hope so. But he still has a lot of money with which to attack Ms. Irey. If she's able to raise enough to get her message out, though, I think she can send this goon packing.

Murtha has learned the pathological actions of democrats very well. He is guilty of virtually everything he accuses his opponents of doing. Bottom line: Murtha has nothing but contempt for the American people and our military. Otherwise, he'd never make such absurd claims.


Murtha doesn't think he's going to be held accountable for his actions, but his jig will soon be up.

If you haven't seen it, He can't stay on topic and demonstrates that he's a fool in the spoof summit.

That's ok Coop. Since I started work at Home Depot, I do not have much time to check the boards, as before. In short, shot most of the time.
One can only hope that his base support shall diminish as he continues to spout out words of wisdom. When mad dogs bark at the wrong hours, sometimes the master gets totally disturbed.

Another thing that gets me about this guy is that his constituents don't seem to have a clue what a moonbat freak he is.

I saw a news story a couple months ago and they had some voice clips of people in his district. First they asked peoples opinions of Murtha and they all fawned over the guy.

Then they started quoting Murtha and most of them were surprised that he would say anything like that.

True, but it doesn't mean Irey will beat him. That is the trouble with non competitive districting in the House. He and Kerry's statements today make one think that possibly some Dem voters will finally realize how demented some of their Party leaders are. But, I dream!
