Skip to comments.John Murtha: Caving In to Arabs Since 1980 (Ann Coulter)
Posted on 02/21/2007 3:32:03 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Rumored ex-Marine John Murtha, Democrat congressman from Pennsylvania, has become the darling of the cut-and-run crowd for trying to place absurd restrictions on our troops, amounting to withdrawal from Iraq. Were Arab sheiks whispering into his ear?
In case you missed the video on "I Love the '80s," Rep. Murtha was caught on tape negotiating bribes with Arab sheiks during the FBI's Abscam investigation in 1980. The Abscam investigation was conducted by Jimmy Carter's Justice Department, not right-wing Republicans.
On tape, Murtha told the undercover FBI agent: "When I make a f***in' deal I want to make sure that I know exactly what I'm doing and ... what I'm sayin' is, a few investments in my district ..."
It is a profound and shocking fact that Murtha even showed up at this meeting, knowing he was going to be negotiating bribe money with Arabs.
Murtha added that he wanted the investment in his district to look like it was done "legitimately ... when I say legitimately, I'm talking about so these bastards up here can't say to me ... 'Jesus Christ, ah, this happened,' then he (someone else), in order to get immunity so he doesn't go to jail, he starts talking and fingering people and then the son of a bitch all falls apart."

"In 1980, Murtha was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Abscam bribery scandal. Murtha was not indicted in the bribes-for-political-favors probe and ultimately cleared of wrongdoing by the House ethics committee. But his raunchy language and open-ended option to consider a future deal with undercover FBI agents is forever captured on videotape."
"He retired from the Reserves as a colonel in 1990"
Why wasn't he charged under the UCMJ?
most likely the foreign enemy is once again financing under the table the most vocal of the domestic enemies like murtha
"But Murtha was willing to trade favors in return for investment in his district and suggested he might take cash down the line. In other words, Murtha wasn't calling for an immediate surrender of his scruples and principles, but rather a phased withdrawal of them. "
I see another poster has posted a picture of Eowyn, the Nazgul slayer. Here's that picture, in Ann's honor:
Yes, there is ONE thing he could do to make him unelectable even at this late date - he could change parties!
Well...you can't be too rich....
Before the Republicans find that mythical candidate that you speak of, it might be beneficial to get rid of Murtha's buddy who is the head of the PA Republican party who makes sure he doesn't get any competition from anybody inside the party and limits his competition to some maverick like Irey who is pretty much self-financing and limited to contributions from the grassroots.
Ann knows that! She calls him an "ex-Marine" on purpose, just as I do.
Gotta love the defeatocrats that voted for the war and then sell out the troops at every opportunity to please their communist base.
Voter fraud? Did somebody mention voter fraud?
I bet I could lick her. I am not sure where I would start, prolly the right foot, big toe, and work counterclockwise.

In 2008 the democrats all of them will be riding the legs of the Saudis and other malafactors pumping with all their might.. tongues hanging out and eyes rolling like the Dawgs they are..

Of course, I am a retired Doggie, so my opinion is probably not even solicited.
About the only thing good I can say about the traitorous bastard is that at least he wasn't a soldier!
