  • Irey approached to run against Specter

    03/14/2009 9:27:18 AM PDT · by Clintonfatigued · 92 replies · 2,016+ views
    Several Republican conservative fundraisers have approached Washington County Commissioner Diana Irey to ask her to consider a primary run against Sen. Arlen Specter. Sources confirm they have offered to help her raise money. One strategist said of the close-door meeting the conservative group was particularly impressed that when Irey went up against Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Johnstown, in the 2006 midterm primaries, she was able to raise between $300 to $400K online.

  • John Murtha uses 9/11 to brag about pork

    09/11/2006 8:23:18 AM PDT · by xpertskir · 58 replies · 1,354+ views
    John Murtha is using the 5 year anniversary of 9/11 to brag about his abilities to throw pork at any problem that comes his way. Instead of offering a solemn note of remembrance, he has instead decided to generate a list of all the monies he has directed to the Flight 93 memorial(located in his district). This proves one thing, not only has John Murtha forgotten about exactly what happened on the fateful day 5 years ago, he has also neglected to realize how it has changed the world. I guess it wasn’t enough to use thousands of dead U.S....

    by Mark Finkelstein August 17, 2006 - 22:56 If I ever knew that Chris Matthews' brother Jim Matthews is the Republican candidate for Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania, I had forgotten. Chris manifestly has not, and on this evening's Hardball peevishly berated another Republican who had the audacity to bring the fact to his attention. After interviewing Dem Congressman Jack Murtha, Matthews had Murtha's Republican challenger Diana Irey on as a guest. Before getting into substance, Matthews testily alluded to the fact that Irey's campaign manager had sent Matthews a press release with proposed questions for Murtha. First on the list:...

    It is no accident that Republican congressional candidate Diana Irey has opened a campaign office in U.S. Rep. John Murtha’s backyard. But rather than an attempt to gain a foothold in the powerful Democrat’s hometown, Irey says she simply needed a headquarters for a local campaign movement that has a full head of steam. “We’re signing up more and more volunteers every day,” the Washington County commissioner said Tuesday. Irey opened an office in a complex off Eisenhower Boulevard, Richland Township. It is her only other office aside from her campaign headquarters in Monongahela, Washington County.

    On Saturday evening August 12, 2006 The Gore Family Dinner was held at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville with John Murtha as the primary speaker. The gathering of Gorons was Freeped by three stalwarts who took position across the street from the main entry. These Freepers were Girl angler and husband and Bert. The Freep line was short but seemed proportional to the attendees. The paper said hundreds attended but that seemed considerably inflated.

She is very easy to talk to and she was very interested in our ideas for helping with her campaign. So don't be shy with your recommendations, she's a good listener....

    A 21st Century Energy Policy Monday, July 17, 2006 For too long, our dependence on oil -- particularly foreign oil -- has shaped our foreign and national security policy. For too long, we have allowed ourselves to be dependent on the whims of foreign dictators whose nations control vital supplies of a resource we need, often times in parts of the world where instability leads to the supply disruptions that can wreak havoc on energy costs. For too long, moreover, our dependence on foreign oil has meant that we have, in effect, been funding both sides in the Global War...

  • To raise profile, Murtha will stump for 41 Dems

    Wednesday July 26, 2006 Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), who has suspended his race to become majority leader in the event that the Democrats capture the House, plans to campaign in 41 races around the country where he said party leaders believe he can be helpful. This is a dramatic increase in activity for Murtha, who did not campaign for House candidates in 2004, according to his spokeswoman. Helping Democratic candidates could pay dividends in a race for majority leader against Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). Murtha says he thinks such a race is likely and told The Hill that if...

    Murtha: US Staying in Iraq Helps Potential Enemies By Randy Hall Staff Writer/Editor July 21, 2006 ( - Pennsylvania anti-war Congressman John Murtha Thursday said the U.S. military's continued presence in Iraq is emboldening America's potential enemies by depleting American resources that could be used in other conflicts around the world. "Who wants us in Iraq? North Korea, Iran, China, Russia and al Qaeda," Murtha told a luncheon gathering in Washington, D.C. Those entities, he added, believe that "as a nation, we are distracted, and as a world superpower, we're depleting our resources." (See Video at article link above)...

    Dear Friend, To all the Republicans who sit in their air-conditioned offices and talk of the courage it takes for them to keep young kids in harm's way -- I say enough. Karl Rove talking about "cutting and running" while he sits on his big, fat backside-saying "stay the course." I say enough! That's not a plan! We've got to have a new direction, and it's clear we need more Democrats in Congress to get that done. No matter how obvious the mistakes in Iraq become, or how many Americans get fed up, Republicans in Congress and the White House...

    On June 24, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Mr. Murtha told a townhall meeting in Miami that the "American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran." Newspapers across the country, including this one, as well as columnists, bloggers and pundits criticized Mr. Murtha based on the Sun-Sentinel's article. Mr. Murtha, however, said he was misquoted and succeeded in soliciting a retraction from the Sun-Sentinel's editors. But despite the Sun-Sentinel's backtracking, the initial characterization of Mr. Murtha's comments was correct, as a video of the town hall meeting makes clear....
