    20 Reasons not to vote for John Murtha  1. Murtha wants to Cut and Run from Iraq. This has already proven deadly for America: Osama bin Laden cites the Cut and Run from Somalia (1993) as the main reason he believed al Qaida could strike the U.S. with impunity. Cut and Run is wrong now in Iraq for the same reasons. read  2. Murtha demoralizes our troops during war with his public statements: read, read  3. Murtha aligns with & accepts awards from radical, anti-military, soldiers-harassing organizations: Code Pink/Murtha photo-op, accepting their award: here MFSO/Murtha photo-op, in Washington, D.C.: here...

    GENERAL GIAP AND CONGRESSMAN MURTHA by Henry Mark Holzer I’ve just finished reorganizing some of my Election 2004 essays. One, about John Kerry’s anti-war activities and the North Vietnamese, struck me because of how it applies today to opportunists like Jack Murtha, leftover Marxists, airhead celebrities, America haters, and virtually the entire Democratic congressional and party leadership. Here’s what Erika Holzer and I wrote two years ago:  "Fox News Channel has just reported that “in his 1985 memoir about the [Vietnam]war, communist Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap wrote that if it weren’t for organizations like Kerry’s Vietnam Veterans Against the...

Murtha's district is strongly pro-military. Below is a comment from one of Murtha's constituents posted on the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat's online Discussion board:      "I've long been a supporter of his, and if not for his vicious verbal attacks on our military heroes, I may still be among his most loyal supporters.      Play petty politics if you want, Jack - and criticize every Republican you can find any nit-picky details on to further...

John Murtha of Pennsylvania. (See Sunday commentary "Another casualty of war.") Beautiful poetry aside, let's set the record straight. In 2004, the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth provided a tremendous service by exposing the disgraceful Vietnam War conduct of John Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee. I happily donated to their cause and would proudly join them again in defense of our nation's military. But that stellar organization isn't involved with the planned Oct. 1 rally...
