I distinctly remember watching President Nixon, when talking about a then-current accused criminal (the case had strong notoriety at the time) say the guy was “guilty, directly or indirectly” of the crime. The phrase “allegedly guilty” had simply escaped his mind.

He was vilified in the press and there was no small amount of discussion on the “Sunday shows” about the fact that he could be sued for saying that.

Enter Murtha, who goes far farther, and IS sued. This will be interesting. We will see if we live under the rule of law.

I believe Murtha will lose this one, and he is very, VERY nervous.

If you'd been following this from the start several months ago, you'd be very aware that no-one here has overlooked ANYTHING that's come out of Murtha 'the traitors' mouth, and within the archives here at FR or on our own HD's every word he's uttered has been recorded.

I posted it on a different thread earlier today and so did "just a nobody".

Sorry, I had to step away for a bit. I know what you are trying to say J.

Coop, this was discussed at length on another thread today. There are some people that still believe that the Marines have been charged. They have not.

There are three cases floating around and they are being confused.

WHO???

LOL! I really don't know who he is, but I certainly get the gist of what you are saying. So, who do you think is pulling his strings or has his hand up his back?

The freepers here at freerepublic are the best on the net. I know that and respect that highly, that is why I am here.

I made the post to show Murtha was slandering the staff sergeant with his response
yet again.
I made the post so we could fire more ammunition at Murtha and ensure his defeat.

'Just a Nobody" pointed out they had made the same point on another thread earlier, like myself. I was not the only pointing that fact out. "Just a Nobody" and I had an adult and respectual posts back and forth. Then "Coop" responded in less adult fashion with sarcasm when I had did nothing to him or her. Well, I take no crap from no one when I have not done anything wrong. I never started with the sarcasm.

I am here to be enlightened and learn and mybe teach a little myself. I am not her to be insulted for no reason.

He was vilified in the press

Ahhh, but you forgot.....NIXON was a Republican. That little fact makes all the difference in the world.

Before I make my next statement, let me say that it is not directed at you. It is cynical and sarcastic, but very true in my opinion. Ready?


We will see if we live under the rule of law.

I think it is hilarious that there are some that think we, the collective citizens, live under the rule of law. The peons do, the Republicans do, (with a few exceptions) but the DemonRAT party most certainly DO NOT!

Short list:
Any Kennedy, any KlinToon, j F'n sKerry, Murtha, McKinney, Sandy Burgler, Marc Rich ............................

This should serve as a reminder to all not to be sloppy in the use of language. Murtha deserves the suit, and deserves to lose. OTT rhetoric, while protected, should be shunned by the public. It is fine to express outrage, but not to use phrases like "murder in cold blood" or even "murder" (which has a legal definition) in expression of outrage over an act which has not been so deemend by a court of law.

Sloppy use of language is for sloppy thinkers, and we don't want sloppy thinkers representing us in Congress. It's bad enough to see them on the web and on the TV.

No, I don't have a law degree, but it seems as if the media made a little error in terminology, and Mrs. Irey's people unfortunately repeated it. It's important that those who make the laws are precise about things like this.

The suit filed by the Marine is not a libel suit, as far as I know, since libel refers exclusively to the printed word. The correct terms are "slander suit" (slander refers exclusively to the spoken word) or "defamation suit" (defamation is a broader term which includes both libel and slander). I believe that the claims in the suit refer only to material spoken by Murtha.

Separately, it was an excellent strategy by the Irey people to point out Murtha's involvement in Abscam and to contrast Murtha's getting the benefit of the doubt there to his failure now to cut the Marines whom he accused the same break.

The Irey campaign should also issue a statement attacking Murtha for his support of an immediate cease-fire in the current Israel-Hezbollah conflict, and I'm confident that they will.

Coop you are a drive by poster. Like to throw insults for no reason. I have met my share of people like yourself whom will let their mouth overload their ass. They can never back it up though.

Popping off to "Just a Nobody" a nice girl whom did nothing to you makes you feel good too?

Pretty pathetic. I can only imagine the people whom read this entire thread and sides with you would be in the minority.

Looks like not all of us is here trying to positive things. That is a shame.

Apparently you have a lot to learn.
First lesson: stop being a whiner.

It's plain to see you can hand it out [#46] but obviously don't have the gumption to take it when thrown back at you. Try growing up a little and discard your 'potty mouth' if you want to be taken seriously.

You make my point for me Coop. You can't back it up, so you drive by post. There is NO DIFFERENCE between you and John Murth because you both say outrageous things. You say things because you think it makes you look big and important. Problem it does not.

What ever issues make you and John Murtha similiar, you should leave them at your end of the key board tough guy.

"hot looking" is an absolute. It does not depend on who is saying it, if it's true.


On the other hand, words like "handsome", "good-looking" cannot be used by (real) men to describe other men.

It's a Man Law.

Your Newby comment does not hold any water because you have been on FR longer than me. Big deal. Look at John Murtha, he has been in Congress a long time, and we can all see what he is made of. Irey would be a Newby, so I guess she is not worthy to step into congress and Murtha should be held in higher regard because his tenure there?

Like I said, you Newby comment does not hold any water.

It appears they switched the terms all through the article.
___________________________________________________________________________
Marine Names Murtha in Defamation Suit (Article Title)

Later in the article:

Neal A. Puckett and Mark S. Zaid, suing for libel and invasion of privacy

Wuterich and the other members of his squad have not been charged and have not received any official investigative documentation

A Naval Criminal Investigative Service investigation is expected to determine possible charges this summer, said officials familiar with the case.

Smolla said. "The congressman's statement does not sound as if it is merely hyperbole or opinion or name-calling. Instead, it conveys the idea that the Marines violated professional standards and perhaps the law."

such defamation suits happen from time to time but that they tend not to go anywhere because of the constitutional protections members have. He said the most famous case was in 1979, when the Supreme Court ruled that Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.) was not protected when he made defamatory statements to constituents in a newsletter.

Here is how the '04 election results looked in the 12th District. I think there is much to be encouraged by.

Part of Allegheny County Bush 42.1
Part of Armstrong County * Bush 60.9
Part of Cambria County * Bush 50.8
Part of Fayette County Bush 45.8
All of Greene County * Bush 50.0
Part of Indiana County * Bush 55.9
Part of Somerset County * Bush 64.7
Part of Washington County Bush 49.6
Part of Westmoreland County * Bush 56.0
