Boy that Rockefeller Plan - keeps on keeping on!
Byron York covers an event where Rep. Murtha opens his trap again in front of a group of the antiwar elite:
"Representative John Murtha, the Pennsylvania Democrat who has come to national prominence since his call for a quick withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq, said Thursday night that he worries about "a slow withdrawal which makes it look like there's a victory."
Appearing at a town meeting in Arlington, Virginia, with fellow Democratic Rep. James Moran, Murtha said, "A year ago, I said we can't win this militarily, and I got all kinds of criticism." Now, Murtha told the strongly antiwar audience, "I worry about a slow withdrawal which makes it look like there's a victory when I think it should be a redeployment as quickly as possible and let the Iraqis handle the whole thing."
The meeting, which attracted an overflow crowd, was promoted by the Internet activist group MoveOn.org, which said that "Congressman Moran has extended a special invitation to MoveOn members in his district and nearby." It was also promoted on some antiwar websites like afterdowningstreet.org.
Yeah, a "victory" would put a damper on the Rocky Plan wouldn't it.
Pathetic. Again, no substance, just a politcal agenda. Democrats - so rabid they are to gain control (fat chance), that everything they say and do is nothing more than political rehortic designed to get an advantage.
How different that lack of backbone compares to that of President Bush who in spite of politics and polls does what he thinks is right.
Democrats - the "Anything, Any Position" Party.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and USMC General Pace answers Murtha on his "chickensh_t cut and run defeatism".
"That's (Murtha's remarks the other day) damaging to recruiting, it's damaging to morale of the troops who are deployed, and it's damaging to the morale of their families who believe in what they're doing to serve this country. We have almost 300 million Americans who are being protected by 2.4 (million) volunteer active, Guard and Reserve members. We must recruit to that force. When a respected leader like Mr. Murtha, who has spent 37 extremely honorable years as a Marine, fought in two wars, has served the country extremely well in the Congress of the United States, when a respected individual like that says what he said, and 18- and 19-year-olds look to their leadership to determine how they are expected to act, they can get the wrong message."
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin with the story of how a soldier gave Murtha a "what for"! And again another soldier tells him off. Good for him!
Murtha, you listening buddy?
