WHY IS JACK SCARED TO DEBATE?

REASON NUMBER 16:

HE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW THAT HE VOTED AGAINST ALLOWING MILITARY PERSONNEL TO ASSIST THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY WITH BORDER SECURITY IN TIMES OF A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY

(MONONGAHELA, October 21) -- Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey -- responding to Jack Murtha's refusal to meet with her to debate the issues, despite newspaper editorials urging him to debate, a League of Women Voters offer to host and sponsor a debate, and local television stations' offer to air the debate -- today released this statement:

"Monday we began our 21-part series, 'Why doesn't Jack want to debate?' wherein I suggest 21 reasons Jack Murtha might be refusing to debate me in public.

"Today I offer reason number 16 Jack Murtha is scared to debate me: because HE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW THAT HE VOTED AGAINST ALLOWING MILITARY PERSONNEL TO ASSIST THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY WITH BORDER SECURITY IN TIMES OF A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY.

"During consideration of the Defense Authorization bill in May 2006, Jack Murtha was given an opportunity to demonstrate his commitment to enhancing border security when amendment 814, offered by U.S. Rep. Virgil Goode of Virginia, was put to a vote. The Goode Amendment would have authorized the Secretary of Defense to assign members of the Armed Forces, under certain circumstances and subject to certain conditions, to assist the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection and the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement of the Department of Homeland Security with preventing the entry of terrorists, drug traffickers, and illegal aliens into the United States.

"Jack Murtha voted 'NO' on this amendment. And he doesn't want to be held to account for it."

For those keeping score, here's the running scorecard:

21 REASONS JACK IS SCARED TO DEBATE: HE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW:

21. He has voted himself 12 straight pay raises.
20. He has voted to raise his own pay from $42,500/yr to $165,500/yr.
19. He tried to take a $50,000 cash bribe from an undercover agent for the FBI.
18. His "investment defense" was nothing more than a ruse to hide his $50,000 cash bribe from an undercover agent for the FBI.
17. He wrongfully accused U.S. Marines of cold-blooded murder.
16. He voted against allowing military personnel to assist the Department of Homeland Security with border security in times of a threat to national security.

Unbelievable! And the press dares call this jerk a "hawk". What possible reason could Murtha have to vote against this other than party politics?

Well Red, after reading this, I can think of a couple reasons.

The Goode Amendment would have authorized the Secretary of Defense to assign members of the Armed Forces.....to assist.....with preventing the entry of terrorists, drug traffickers, and illegal aliens into the United States.

Terrorists? Listen carefully and think about what is said.

Illegal Aliens? Read 'em and weep. They will play a major role in our elections unless people WAKE UP!

Drug traffickers? Hmmmmm, he is acting like some raving crack addict. Maybe......................naw, I'm NOT going there!

As my husband would say, she is much easier on the eyes than Murtha! Wish I could move there so I could vote AGAINST Murtha!

Li'l bitty thing, I wish I could vote for her; she seems tough and smart. I have Blanco and Landrieu to not look forward to; a boudinbummer.
