    He's "a male Cindy Sheehan" and "a one-man wrecking crew" on ethics. Is Murtha the man to lead the Democrats? Monday, June 26, 2006 12:01 a.m. Two Vietnam veterans now serving in Congress gave speeches over the weekend that help explain why the American people hold both political parties in low esteem , and also why Democrats have largely failed to capitalize on the failures of a Republican president and Congress.

    Democrat Assails Rove's Remarks on Iraq By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ WASHINGTON, June 18 — Representative John P. Murtha, the Pennsylvania Democrat and Vietnam War veteran pushing for a quick withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, today mocked Karl Rove, the president's senior adviser, for championing the war while "sitting in his air-conditioned office on his big, fat backside." Mr. Murtha, in an appearance on the NBC News program "Meet the Press," was responding to a speech Mr. Rove delivered in New Hampshire last week attacking Democrats for what he called "that party's old pattern of cutting and running." When Mr. Murtha...

    The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks. The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week. A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue...

    Monday, Dec. 5, 2005 8:05 p.m. EST DNC's Dean: U.S. Will Lose War in Iraq Democratic Chairman Howard Dean on Monday likened the war in Iraq to Vietnam and said, "The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong," comments that drew immediate fire from Republicans. In an interview with WOAI-AM in San Antonio, Dean criticized what he called President Bush's "permanent commitment to a failed strategy" while saying, "We need to be out of there and take the targets off our troops' back." Dean suggested "a strategic redeployment" of U.S....

    BERLIN, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Kidnappers in Iraq have threatened to kill a German woman and her driver unless Berlin stops cooperating with the U.S. -backed Iraqi government, German state television ARD reported on Tuesday. The kidnappers made their threat in a video tape handed to ARD in Baghdad, the television said. Extracts from the tape on ARD's Web site showed two people sitting on the ground with their eyes covered by white material. They were surrounded by three masked, armed figures, one of whom appeared to be reading from a piece of paper. Former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder opposed the...
  • Memo to Murtha

    Before I say anything else, Congressman Murtha, let me thank you -- for your long public service in Washington and, before that, in Vietnam. And let me commend you, too, for sparking an honest debate. Until now, what has passed for debate on Iraq has been mostly slander – for example, calling President Bush a liar and questioning his patriotism. Yes, questioning his patriotism: because anyone who would lie to get America into a war for reasons unrelated to national security would not be a patriot. He'd be a traitor. I ask you, sir: Has such a vicious charge ever...

    Since his surprise call last Thursday to withdraw American troops from Iraq, the media have been speaking nothing but high praise for Rep. John Murtha (D-Penn). Yet, the press haven’t always been so fond of the congressman, and their recent love affair with Mr. Murtha is totally ignoring their past depictions of him as being “a leading pork-barrel politician” who is often in the middle of a great deal of questionable spending related to defense contracts. In fact, many of the headlines Murtha made in the ’90s were specifically connected to projects that he pushed through the House that largely...

    Congressman Murtha’s On-Line Survey Please indicate which of the following best summarizes your view on what the United States should do in Iraq: We should immediately remove all troops. We should redeploy to the periphery of Iraq as soon as practical to protect troop safety and give the Iraqis incentive to take charge sooner, not later. We should maintain current troop levels until Iraq builds an army to defend and stabilize their country, even if that takes years. We should re-institute the national draft to increase troop levels to where we can seal the Iraqi borders and stop the...

    While the big story right now is about Rep. John Murtha's call for a pullout from Iraq within 6 months, it appears Murtha is going to have some big problems soon... Republican lawmakers say that ties between Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) and his brother’s lobbying firm, KSA Consulting, may warrant investigation by the House ethics committee. The calls come as Murtha, a former Marine and pro-military Democrat, has made headlines this week by coming out in support of a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. According to a June 13 article in The Los Angeles Times, the fiscal 2005...

    E-mail Author Author Archive Send to a Friend Version November 21, 2005, 8:36 a.m. Defeated by Defeatism Why Jack Murtha is wrong. As everyone knows, Rep. Jack Murtha (D., Pa.) initiated a fierce debate last Thursday when he launched a scathing attack on Bush's Iraq policy, which he labeled ''a flawed policy wrapped in illusion," and called for a timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq. Murtha claimed that such a timetable would provide the Iraqi government with an added incentive to have their own security forces take control of the conflict. Murtha's voice on this issue is important...

    After terrorists attacked U.S. troops in Mogadishu, Somalia 12 years ago, anti-Iraq war Democrat, Rep. John Murtha urged then-President Clinton to begin a complete pullout of U.S. troops from the region. Clinton took the advice and ordered the withdrawal - a decision that Osama bin Laden would later credit with emboldening his terrorist fighters and encouraging him to mount further attacks against the U.S. "Our welcome has been worn out," Rep Murtha told NBC's "Today" show in Sept. 1993, after the Mogadishu battle cost the lives of 18 U.S. Rangers.
