Philadelphia Transportation To Boot Murtha Rally October 1st [Check In Here]
9/2/06 | Doctor Raoul

There will be transportation available from the Philadelphia area to the BOOT MURTHA rally in Johnstown, PA in the Cambria County War Memorial Arena on Sunday, October 1st.

The purpose of this thread is to determine the level of interest on the part of local Freepers and pass those numbers on to the rally's transportation coordinators.

As the booting starts at 2 PM in Johnstown, departure from the Philadelphia area will be around 8:00 AM with a return around 9:30 PM-10:00 PM.

Any questions, post here, Freepmail me or send email to raouldeming@yahoo.com

Don't worry about the travel time. People who rode the bus to the March For Justice or the van to last year's rally on Capitiol Hill will tell you that with all the good company and conversations, the trip passes quickly.

Cost for this will be very reasonable, but won't be known until we get a head count.

FYI. I think your transportation is already set, and I'm not sure exactly where you're coming from. But figured you might know of some folks interested in this info. Cheers!

Any word on polling?
I can't find anything, which is probably a bad sign for Irey.

I assume you meant a bad sign for Murtha? Come to the rally, and I'll personally give you an update on Irey/Murtha polling.

Only bad signs I have seen show trouble for Murtha. Hope he's got his "sheet" in one bag because he's going to be moving out any time now.

Sign me up.

I don't get to do too much local stuff.

Driving to Philly sure beats driving to DC.

Yes, it's a relatively new feature, just added to the website in the past few days. Click the red bar right at the very top.

Any word on polling? I can't find anything, which is probably a bad sign for Irey.

If I may... the Sept. print issue of American Spectator, "The Full Murtha" offers the following poll results:

{EXCERPT:] A recent poll shows that only 43 percent of Murtha's constituents support his anti-war comments.

[EXCERPT:] He "used to be a low-key guy, under the radar," said Gleason, who has known Murtha for over 30 years (their hometown is Johnstown). Now "his conduct has changed" to "political chestbeating." Not to mention verbal recklessness. In a recent interview, Murtha offered that American troops in Iraq could redeploy to Okinawa, a claim that analysts and the media widely derided. And Murtha's new positions are making waves in Pennsylvania. "Everybody is shocked that he criticized the President and the troops," said Gleason, who also noted that Murtha was once a strong pro-life vote in the House. "I never even detected a pro-choice vote from him until this year," Gleason said, in reference to Murtha's votes in support of embryonic stem cell research.

That doesn't count. :-) (BTW, I believe that's the same poll that's been around for months.) But folks are looking for head-to-head polling.

'Nova is, not surprisingly, out near Philly. Perhaps the good doctor's transportation coordination will benefit both of you.

Yes, Just A Nobody. I'm sure going to try and get there. I'm also going to try and hit DC in a couple of weeks. Still waiting to finalize my travel schedule but keeping my fingers crossed that it all comes together.

Will you be at the Rally?

LOL! I get called a lot of things on FR, but "celebrity" has never been one of them. :-)

Yes, I'll definitely be there (God willing). Booting Murtha has been my pet project for many months now. It remains to be seen whether or not we'll be successful, but it won't be for lack of trying on my part.

See you there!

Mo, Raoul's the Philly area coordinator, so just check in with him occasionally. Or he can add you to his "maybe" list, if he has one.
